Rules for Official PentaxForums.com Monthly Photo Contests

Official Rules for the PentaxForums.com Monthly Photo Contests

Please follow these guidelines when submitting entries for our monthly photo contests. Your photo may be disqualified or you may be asked to re-upload it upon any violations. These rules will be effective starting April, 2007.
  • Submit only one photo per contest
  • Your submission must have been taken with a Pentax camera and match the contest theme
  • Post your submission in a separate thread within the contest submission forum
  • The photo dimensions must be between 300x300 and 1024x1024 pixels
  • To ensure smooth loading, no photo must be no greater than 1Mb in filesize
  • Your photo MUST be in JPG format (so that it can be displayed inline)
Fine print:
  • Your submission must be taken by you and may not be a derivative work
  • Post-processing that enhances your submission is allowed
  • Image borders are allowed, but should be used in moderation
  • Submissions do not have to be taken in the same month as the contest
  • To avoid voting bias, please do not watermark your photos with your username (but rather with your real name or website if needed)
  • Do not specifically list which photo(s) you voted for or comment on others when commenting on the voting thread
  • Only the latest post of your first submission thread will be checked for a photo. Thus, to change your submission, simply post it as a reply or edit the first post. Do not reply with comments, etc.
  • Voting polls for each contest are posted the day after the contest closes to submissions (i.e. September 1st for an August contest)
  • If your photo doesn't contain EXIF information, please specify the camera and lens in your thread, using the appropriate fields
  • If your photo wins, it will be showcased on our homepage (update: as of 2010, instead in our Premier Gallery) along with all previous winners. We reserve the right to permanently leave a copy of your photo in that gallery.
Note that we use an automated system to process voting threads. Therefore, if your photo does not meet any of the submission requirements, it WILL NOT BE INCLUDED, and you may or may not be notified of disqualification beforehand.

Update: we will now be strictly enforcing the regulations in the first post of this thread. Please make sure that resolution as well as filesize are within bounds for all photos!
