Thumbs up Budgie of the Month October 2012

Hello everyone and welcome back to the Budgie of the Month contest.

I will start this month by introducing a brand new rule . After consulting with the TB staff and the TB Supporting Members, we have decided to modify the rules, making it simpler than ever before to enter.

You will no longer be required to PM me your entry. Just post it here. Your photo must meet the challenge that is posted for the month. For example, if the challenge is "Budgie's Eating" do not post a photo of your budgie taking a bath. All qualifying photos will be moved to a closed thread for viewing and voting.
If your photo does not meet the challenge requirement, it will not be entered. If you post more than one photo, neither of the photos will be entered. One photo per member and the photo must meet the challenge requirement. I hate to sound like a broken record but I want to keep this contest simple and fun.

So remember the word "ONE"-one member-one photo- one vote-that's it-that's all.


On your post put your budgie's name and what you want the next challenge to be.

Here is a detailed thread of all the rules and regulations : BOTM Rules & Regulations


louara, excuse me but if i send you a pm of all my photos-what happens?

You will be disqualified from entering this month.

ok-so if i don't pm you anything and if i post my entire photobucket album of all my pictures in which i look soooo beautiful-what happens?

You will not be entered. You will be disqualified.

if i have the most two perfect photos of myself and i can't decide which one to post -what should i do?

Pick one and post one.


can i ask you or another staff member which one to post?


No, pick one photo and post one photo.

if the challenge is budgies flying and i post the most perfect photo of me sitting down- i mean it is the most perfect picture of me ever! -what happens?

You will not be entered into the BOTM contest but you are welcome to post your photo in the Budgie Picture Forum.

okay-okay- gee you are getting so persnickity...........why can't i post all my perfect photos!!

Because it's not fair to the other members who follow the rules and only post one photo. You have 3 weeks to choose which photo you want to enter. There is no need to rush. Take some time and pick the best photo you have that meets the challenge for the month.

if i wanna switch my photo for another photo so i post 2 photos- what happens?

Neither photo will be entered and you will be disqualified.

disqualified! moi?! well......i never......- hmmph!!

soooooo how do i know if i am entered for this month?



You will see your entry in the BOTM Entries thread. This will be a closed "sticky" thread , that is for viewing only. I promise that all qualifying entries will be entered within 24 hours of it being posted.



I would like to thank the staff and our Supporting Members for all their suggestions regarding this contest. The voting procedure has changed as well and I will explain how that will work as we get closer to the end of the month.

If you have any questions or concerns please post them here. If I am not online to answer your question, another staff member will.


All right then- are you ready for Sir Oliver Spencer's challenge ? The contest opens now and will close for entries on October 23rd.

The challenge for this month is...............................................








Budgies with their favorite toy (s)





Show us your budgie playing with his or her favorite toy or toys .
Post your photo here.
Just ONE photo per ONE member.
Put your budgie's name on your post.
Tell us what you would like to see as the next challenge.

Now, go have some fun with your budgie(s)!

Pickles is sure having a good time with that ball Susan, does she know it's intended for feline usage only? haha- what a sweetie. Thanks for entering

Roland! I wouldn't believe it unless I saw it. Jestiny is not scared of that toy? Does it make all kinds of sounds and move around? Jestiny is so relaxed sitting on it - too funny

This sure is a fun challenge - click her to see all the BOTM Entries
