***Submission thread for May Contest-"closed"*** [View all]

This month's theme is "Critters of the World". This would include any and all creatures, as long as they're not personal pets. They have to be wild. It could be mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish or other sea life, bugs, insects, or any life forms I've forgotten. Zoos, wildlife refuges and sanctuaries, butterfly and bird exhibits, etc. would all be OK. Just no personal pets.

I'm hoping we have 30 entries before 5/22. At that point, I'll start the preliminary rounds.

This thread is for photos only! NO COMMENTS. Those go here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/103686960

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.


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.
The submissions will run until March 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.

Let's have some fun.
