Photo of the Month

We've been thinking of running a "photo of the month" competition, no prizes just a bit of kudos. A few very basic rules if these are agreeable...
1) photo must be from calendar month of competition
2) no voting for your own photo.

Basically, I'll put a thread up inviting pics at the start of the month, then at the end of the month add a poll with say maybe a week to cast a vote.
What do you reckon? I'm not going to categorize it into "action" "sleeping" "playing" type classes, all bundled together and let the members decide which pic they like best.

Love it!

Would there be a limit on how many submissions per V?

I think in all fairness it should be one pic per comp

Yes, just one really good photo per competitor, per month. It does sound like fun! Great idea, harrigab!! ;D ;D ;D

Re: Photo of the Month

I'm away for first 2 weeks in April, so are we all okay with a 1st May to start snapping?

Re: Photo of the Month

Sounds like fun..... and 1 photo per person per month sounds fair.... I am exercising my snapping finger now!

I always enjoy seeing the photos of everyone's V's ..... I'm still obsessed with the photo of the V's and matching red chickens! I now want chickens, but alas do not live in a neighborhood where they are permitted ! HA :

Re: Photo of the Month

I think that we're gonna have to trust people to play fair, (after all, we are V owners) and abide by the rules as i don't want to police it as such, just want to have a bit of a craic and maybe (not cleared this yet...) Calum could maybe award a POTM smiley in each winners avatar..
