    To enter you will need to add your photo entry to the Coral Collector Forum.


    Be sure to select the Sticks from the drop down when you start your thread. When you enter your photo in one of the above forums, you must also complete the thread fields to the best of your knowledge. Completion of the fields will be taken into accounts when choosing the finalists.

    If you want a little more information on how to add your corals to one of the showcase forums, here is a tutorial.


    This month's prize was is a $50 gift certificate donated by The Coral Shop.

    In addition, the winner will have a golden camera award placed in his or her postbit and will be featured on the CR. The winner will also serve as a judge for the next two photo contests.

    Rules

    1. Photos must be uploaded to the Coral Collector Forum.
    2. You can multiple times, but only one time per species
    3. The photo must be your own.
    4. Try to submit a photo that is 800x600 resolution. **
    5. The previous two (2) POTM winners are ineligible to win.

    *Submitting a photo entry is acknowledgment that it may be modified and used for future site graphics on CR with credit given to the owner.
    **Please retain higher resolution versions of your photos. We may need a higher resolution shot to make them work with the site graphics after the contest.

    Selection of the Winning Photo

    The semi-finalists will be selected by jimsflies and the previous two POTM winners. Semi-finalists will be posted for the general membership to vote on their favorite. In the event of a tie, the tied entries will be reposted for a tie breaking vote with the general membership. Should we receive 10 or less entries, the judging panel will decide the winner. Photos will be judged on topic, composition, and quality.

    Are we looking for single sticks only?

    Good question! Sure it can be entered...just specify the front or predominant acro in Coral Collector. Not every photo has to be a macro shot.



    Nice shot BTW!
