Last week, we announced our upcoming photography competition entitled the Bragging Rights Photo Competition which begins in March. This week, we are giving you a little more information about how to enter the competition and how to vote once the competition is up and running.
Instructions and Guidelines
When registration begins in March 2015, you will find all the information you need on the Competition pages, but if you have additional questions or we have failed to mention something, there is a question form available.
All times are Atlantic Time. You may participate in this competition in two ways. You may enter an image each month and you may vote. You are free to do both or just one. If you decide that you wish to enter, you will select the box that says “Submitting Images”. All the instructions that you require to successfully enter an image are found on the submission page. You may submit an image from 12:00 am on the 1st of the month until 11:59 pm on the 14th of the month. After that time, the images will be prepared for voting.
If you decide that you would like to vote and help to determine who wins, you will select a box that says “Vote for Your Favourite”. You will find a button that will take you to the current gallery of images where you will be able to cast your vote. Voting begins at 12:00 am on the 17th of the month and ends at 11:59 pm on the last day of the month. After that time, the winners will be announced and the images will be prepared for display.
Why do you need to register?
To participate as a contributor of an image, you must register and agree to the terms and conditions. The one time registration process takes very little time and collects only a name and email address. The purpose of the registration is to ensure unique entries, allow attribution of the image to the creator, credit you with a win and allow the system to keep a list of images available for you to view when you want to see what you have entered in other months. Your email address will not be shared for any reason. Your name will only be used on this site and on social media connected with your photo. If you do not wish to register, you will not be able to enter a photograph; however, you can still take part in the voting.
Remember, the Bragging Rights Photo Competition is open to all photographers and there is no age limit. Next week, we will explain the theme for March. Be sure to enter and help us share the joy of photography.
