Hello all! Just a (very) quick reminder that the January OBA photo contest is currently underway and you can e-mail me your submissions until January 15th at 5:00PMish. If I recieve a submission shortly after then, it will likely make it into the contest for the month. However, any submissions sent to me after 7 or 8 pm probably will not make it for this months contest as I likely won't be checking my mail that late. All that being said, I highly encourage anyone and everyone to submit a photo! Seeing all these amazing photos you've all submitted this far has become a joy for me to look forward to - so thank you, all who have submitted (one time, or every month! )
And, as usual, the usual quick rundown of contest rules:
- Contest submissions must be of wild birds only and while minor editing to crop or adjust lighting are acceptable, photographs with major modifications to the subject or background, or photo montages, will be rejected by the contest moderator, whose decision is final. - You do not need to be an OBA member to submit a photo in the contest. - You do not need to be an OBA member to vote in the contest. - Submission period for photos will be the first two weeks of every month, and must be received by our Contest Coordinator by 5 pm on the 14th day. Submitted photos will then be posted here for people to vote on. - Once the voting is completed, the winning photo will be displayed as our website home-page image for the following month. - Photographers may only submit one photo per contest (monthly). - Voters may only vote for one photo per contest (monthly). - Photo must have been taken in Oregon and within the current month or two months prior. For example, only photos from March, April, and May will be accepted for May's contest. - Please include the species name, location, date the photo was taken, and your name and email address.
Submission period is the first two weeks of every month.
thank you all! Cheers, Zia Fukuda
