Welcome to Season 3 of the Budgie of the Month Competition. Last season was full of excitement, fun and suspense. I know this season will bring more of the same.
I am making two changes this year to the contest. The first change is one that I love. No more voting polls! Hooray! Last month I asked members to PM their votes to me and it worked wonderfully. Once the contest closes for entries everyone can start voting right away. Having a voting system that is private is something many of you have been asking for, so I am glad to implement it for Season 3.
The second change is in the posting of the rules and guidelines to the contest. From now on I will post this Rules & Regulations for the Budgie of the Month Contest.
I encourage everyone to read it in full. I will post a shorter version of the rules and guidelines in each new challenge thread.
Are you ready for a brand new season? Gracie-Mae and I sure am! So here we go.............
A challenge will be posted here. Simply take a photo matching the challenge and PM it to me. A non-photoshopped, non-edited photo is required. The only editing allowed is photo cropping. PM your photo to me here: Send a PM to louara by clicking here and I will post the entry for you in a separate thread.
Told you it was easy!
The contest starts now and the last day for entries is January 21st.
The winner will receive 50 karma points !
A Desktop wallpaper, featuring the winner will also be awarded. This wallpaper will be made available in different sizes for downloading by everyone.
The winner also has the honor of picking the next month's challenge as well as automatically being entered into the Budgie of the Year competition which will take place in December.
If you have any questions regarding the rules, please post them here.
