The theme this year will be “ A story with available light”. Creating a dramatic image which is enhanced by the use of available natural or artificial light. Simply put, this means no flash photography. The image should draw your attention and keep you interested by the story you can imagine from it and the impact the light has on the subject. Put your imagination and creative skills to work.

A few minor updates.

Votes will only be counted from members registered before the contest closes.

If a photo or member is disqualified, votes from that member will not be counted.

If a member does not have a history of participating on the site, his or her vote will not count. What does this mean? Simply put, if you only have photos in the contest or have uploaded all your photos on the same day that will not count. There are many long time members here that have been contributing photos and critiquing other photos for a while and they are considered active participants.

If you register multiple times under different names and vote, those votes will not count. There are ways of identifying such users.

I hope this clarifies a few questions regarding the contest. If we have a civil and professional voting experience, we will keep the process in place for the next contest. If not, a judge will select the next contest winner.
