    Hi Guys,

    As we all know, there's more pic addicts on this site than on photography forums. I would like to propose a competition which we could all participate in.

    How about a monthly competition where sponsors give away a first, second and third prize for the best pics sent in based on a specific topic, say one month its hermit crabs, another its rics, etc....

    We have a few sponsors on this forum, and basically their only advertising medium is by letting us know when stocks arrive, etc... If sponsors could offer us... The Marine Aquarist the opportunity to win something back, wouldn't that be a means to increase turnovers, etc...

    I see we did have polls in the past on the forum, which could be a means to get votes in.... But the emphasis must be on the sponsor's means to create awareness, sales, etc...

    What do you guys think?

    i think it should be a picture of anything marine aquarium related, like if you get a cool angle of your skimmer, in an artsy way for example it should also be eligible, not just pics of fish and corals.

    sounds alright to be judged photographically and not on content.
    Basically on appeal...
    You must be sharp to make a skimmer look good but...:lol:
