HOW DOES IT WORK?

The contest in a nutshell: Each day I will upload the submissions post, opening the contest with the day's theme. All photographers are invited to submit one photo every day (see rules below). After the deadline, the judge will evaluate the entries and choose ten winning photos. The winners will be announced in a post the day following each contest.

PARTICIPATION RULES

There are two simple rules for entering the contest:

Rule #1: Upvote the submissions post.
Rule #2: Share a nature photograph in one of the following ways:

Option 1. Create a comment in reply to the daily submissions post, including:
  • a nature photograph that fits the daily theme
  • a short description of the photograph.
Option 2: Create a post on your page, including:

You only need to choose one option for your photo to be considered, but if you go with the second one, you are welcome to also post the photo in the comments section.
Photos that are not original will be disqualified and reported. If plagiarism is determined on a winning photo, the winner will be expected to refund the prize.
Editing is accepted, but please, no added elements to the photos, and no heavy retouching.

Each daily contest begins at approximately 9:00 am EST, when the submissions post is uploaded, and ends at 9:00 am EST the following day.

WINNERS AND PRIZES

TEN photos will be selected and featured as winners in each daily contest. The winners are rewarded with the SBD acquired by the winners announcement post at payout. The prizes will be sent shortly after the post payout, and are:
1st place: 30%
2nd place: 20%
3rd place: 10%
Seven honorable mentions: 5% each

JUDGING AND HOSTING

The judge and hostess will split in half the SBD acquired by the submissions posts at payout. The payment is sent shortly after the payout.
Selected photographers take turns judging the contest. Frequent participants and promising photographers have better chances of being invited to evaluate.
If a judge is unable to send the winners list in a timely manner, I reserve the right to evaluate the entries myself, or to find another judge.

WHY A NATURE PHOTO CONTEST?

  1. To showcase nature through great photography.
  2. To promote top-quality photography and reward talented artists.
  3. To build community among the photographers.
  4. To be a resource to the steemit community.

The Nature Photo Contest was created and is maintained by @shadalene, and has operated for three weeks from my personal account. If you are new to this, feel free to check out my page to get an idea of the contest. Starting tomorrow, Monday, March 19, the contest will run on this account dedicated solely to nature contests. The updated rules posted here will replace the previous contest rules, moving forward. I hope you will enjoy it, have fun, and win some prizes!! Please resteem this post so more photographers can join. Any questions? Feel free to ask and I will make sure to reply. Thank you!
