*****Submission Thread for the February Contest***"NATIONAL and State Parks***

THIS IS THE THREAD FOT SUBMITTING YOUR PHOTOGRAPH - WITH A TITLE - if you want to make a comment go here:

https://www.democraticunderground.com/103683409

The theme of the contest is:
“NATIONAL and State Parks”


The theme was chosen by DUer Xolodno who won the January contest. Questions have come up about enlarging the theme a bit, considering the fact we are under a travel ban, that some of us are not in the US of A, and all of us pretty much need to search our archives.

So we have expanded it to include National Monuments, nature preserves, recreational areas run by the US Park Service. And then there was a question about Great Britain, and that’s OK too.
Use your judgment and chances are I will not be difficult. Though I tell you now, this is not a for cute pet portraits.
I am very curious what you will come up with, so let us see what you've got.
I let this submission thread run til the 16th then we proceed with the voting.

MONTHLY CONTEST:
Only one entry of your own original work per person, unless/until the Volunteer Host opens Submissions for second entries. You need to post your entry in the submission thread started by the Host of a contest. Please be sure to include a "Title" for your photograph in the Subject line of your post. The submission thread is for photo entries only, no comments, no questions. The Host will start a separate thread just for comments and questions.

Once a photo is entered in a contest it is ineligible for any future contest unless the Host specifies otherwise.

The Winner of the contest is the one that comes up with the Theme of the next contest. They can just decide on a theme or may ask for suggestions and then run a poll to pick one of them. Either way the Theme will always be at the discretion of the person who won the contest.

The Volunteer Host has the option of adding other rules to the contest they are hosting. An example would be no Black & White or all Black & White entries.

The Volunteer Host has the option of declaring the submissions being blind (no one knows who entered which photo) or public. Should the Host op for blind submissions it is their responsibility to instruct entrants on how to get their entries to the host. The Volunteer Host may enter a contest as long as the Volunteer Host is not the previous winner and has not selected the theme for the contest which they are hosting.

Submissions will be limited to 30 entries maximum unless the Photography Group votes to change the limits.

As stated the Winner of the contest agrees to pick the next month's theme. The Winner of the monthly contest may not enter the contest for which they selected a theme.


CONTEST LICENSE:

An entrant to this contest, by submitting a photograph, is giving permission for that photograph to be copied to Demopedia or to a linked Gallery and included in a DU Calendar that will display the photographs entered for this contest for the purpose of publicizing future contests and/or commemorating current and past contests. The entrant retains all other rights to the photograph being submitted. Neither Demopedia and/or a linked Gallery may use any photograph submitted for any purpose other than to display the photograph being submitted by the entrant, and neither gains any real or implied ownership rights to the photograph.
Thesubmissions will run until Feb 15 - or until we have 30 submissions. I may well allow a second photo, and will announce that later on in the allotted time period.
