Please PM Snapper & Skippy your shot and it will be posted without your name. We are going to judge blindly again this month.

Do Not Forget. Your shot needs to be 990x415 to be in the contest.

New rule for 2013 onwards: Any shot submitted must be shot between the time of the announcement of the theme and the deadline for entry. In other words, no searching your old shots for an entry to the POTM contest.
=================================================================================
Got a nice picture you took with your Canon EOS Camera?  Submit it below and the winner's picture will be posted up as the website header for the month of February.
 
I wish we could throw in a prize but unfortunately, we don't have any sponsors yet.  Bragging rights are always fun to win though!

Also the winner will choose the next POTM`s theme!

Looking forward to seeing what you all got!  The poll will be added on May 25th for the first round of voting.  May 28, 2014 the poll will be updated so that everyone can vote on their favourite from the top 3 that made it past the first round of voting.

There is no Theme for May's competition - you should concentrate on getting the best shot that fits the 990x415 crop.

1.  One photo entry per user (so pick your best one!).  Choose wisely as the first photo you submit will be the one judged.  You can't switch photos once one's been submitted.
2.  Photo has to be in some way related to the Theme.
3.  Photo has to be in landscape orientation (as opposed to portrait), 990x415 as this will be the cropped end product (Photos that have a smaller width than 990 or a smaller height than 415 will be disqualified - the reason, enlarging photos degrades their quality).
4.  Deadline for entries is midnight EST on May 25, 2012. Update (Suggested deadline is the 25th as we will now take an entry all the way up to the 28th if you want to suffer from not getting your shot in when the poll opened up.)
5.  Between May 25th and May 28th, members vote on their 3 favourites and can update/change their votes up until midnight May 28th.  From midnight May 28th to the end of the month, the poll will be reset with the top 3 vote-getters from the first round and members can vote for their favourite.
6.  Moderators can now enter a photo in the contest without worrying about conflict of interest.
7.  Addendum to the original rules: POTM entries cannot be made up of a composite of images from multiple scenes. Single scene multiple images, as in layers, are however acceptable.

I used to be a very negative person... but then I went digital.

Just giving this month's POTM a bump. Get out there and get those shots, people!

Any subject matter that fits well within a 990x415 crop will do the job!  ;)
