Im just saying we shouldn't put money here just yet. Wait for a few events to see how much attention it gets. If not alot of new people appear, then just one person with good camera will be super rich :lol:

Well, I am going to start working on this. What do you guys think of the contest starting in May? I don't think that the photo should have to be from the month the contest is in, but if this event is recurring, I think it should be a rule that you can not use the same photo twice. Alright, I'm going to start outlining some rules:
  • One submission per user
  • Submissions should be of ants
  • Respect the outcome of the event and be a good sport
  • Do not make fun of somebody's photo, or brag about our own
  • Please be mindful of the quality of your photo, do not submit a phot the is excessively blurring
Now for voting rules (if that is how it is going to work):
  • One vote per user
  • You may not vote for your own photo
  • Do not try to create multiple accounts to vote with
How do you think the winner should be decided? I think the best way would be for everyone to vote, in the outline of the rules I will just assume that this will be the case. Anybody who has other rules in mind, or thinks something needs reworded, please let me know. I might just do a little test of this.

I think there should also be a rule where you shouldn't kill the ants.
For eg if you want a photo of the ant on a flower, don't kill the ant and put it on the flower.
Oh and also don't edit the photo. Keep it original

The first one sounds good, but I always crop my photos. No editing except cropping how about?

Yeah thats more precise
By editting i meant like saturation changes or adding fake colours to make the photo beautiful
Just keep the photos in original conditions

Here is what I am currently thinking it will look like:

Welcome to the 2023 AntsCanada Ant Forum photography contest!

Information:
Submissions will open May first, and close June first. Voting will open June first after submissions close, and will end July first. If you break a rule listed below you will be warned, and given an opportunity to fix it, but if you refuse you to comply you will be disqualified. I will give each submission a number, and to vote you will say the number of the submission you wish to vote for.
If you have an questions about the rules listed below please contact me, and I will answer them as soon as I can.


Rules (submissions):
  • One submission per user
  • Submissions should be of ants
  • Respect the outcome of the event, and be a good sport
  • Do not make fun of somebody's photo, or brag about our own
  • Please be mindful of the quality of your photo, do not submit a photo the is excessively blurry
  • Do not kill the ant you are photographing, if you need it to slow down put in the refrigerator for a bit
  • Do minimal editing, for example, cropping
Rules (voting):
  • One vote per user
  • You may not vote for your own photo
  • Do not try to create multiple accounts to vote with
Thank you for participating, and good luck!

Who would be interested in participating in this contest? Just wondering if people would actually be interested in this.

If you did a pic contest we all would probably have different ants.

I am interested though.

What is to stop someone taking a pic off the internet? Also I have only a few ant species at my home.
