"Tank of the Month" Contest Rules

Post by preacherboy on Thu Jan 14, 2010 11:32 am

We are pleased to announce a new contest for our forum:

Quarterly Tank of the Month contest!

When you cast your vote, remember that this contest is for the best tank, not the best picture of a tank.

Here are the Quarterly Tank of the Month Contest Rules:

All submissions are to be sent via email to pics@riftlakecichlids.com (Subject TOTQ)

The following rules must be followed in order to avoid disqualification of your submission!

If a submission doesn't meet the criteria as stated in our contest rules, then the person submitting the photo will be contacted by email and asked to either re-submit their photo or understand the reason for their photo's disqualification. The Competition Team along with the administrators will have final say on all objections to disqualifications.

Quarterly Tank of the Month Contest Rules:
1. Email must have "Quarterly Tank of the Month" Contest submission" as title
2. Resolutions must be either 640 x 480(minimum) or 800 x 600(maximum)
3. No names or identifing marks are allowed on any tank pictures.
4. Any photo that has already been posted in any thread of the forum will not be accepted as a contest submission.
5. There will be one category in which to enter in this contest; both Point & Shoot and DSLR camera owners will compete against each other.
6. Maximum of 2 entries per quarter total.
7. You may enter quarterly despite being a winner of a previous quarter's contest!
8. All pictures submitted must match the designated region/lake that the particular designated month calls for.
9. In the event of a tie in any quarterly contest, the tie breaker will be decided by a second run-off that is cast among the
forum's membership. If there remains a tie at the conclusion of the run-off vote, then there will be two winners declared
for that quarter.

Email must have the following information...

1. Your Name
3. Make and Model number of Camera
4. Tank size

You also agree that by submitting a photo that Rift Lake Cichlids has the right to post/use your picture on our forum site.

Contest Timeline:

All entries must be submitted by the 20th of the designate quarter. No exceptions, please.

Poll goes up no later than the 21st of the designated quarter in each category.

Members have until the last day of the quarterly contest month to vote. The winners in each category will be announced on the first day of the month after the contest is over.

If you are a quarterly winner, your picture will be posted in the Quarterly Tank of the Month section under the Competition Section.

Our December photo contest will be for Tank of the Year! All winning quarterly photos will compete against each other for this honor in December.

Good Luck to all.
Mark Cox, Klaus Steinhaus and Roger Hopper Competition Team Members

Okay gang, please read the newly revised rules concerning our
Quarterly Tank of the Month contest.

There will no longer be two separate categories for this contest.

You will be able to submit up to two pictures per quarter with any
type of camera.

Remember, we are voting on best tank, not best picture quality!
