  1. Dear all,

    I am proud to present the first ever JungleDragon photo contest in which you can win cash prizes! Please read the details below carefully to participate.

    HOW TO PARTICIPATE

    1. If you're not yet a member of JungleDragon, join.
    2. Post a comment on this thread to confirm you are participating
    3. You're in. Upload wildlife photos to compete in the contest.

    PRIZES

    1. 100$ in cash for the best photo, judged by its karma score which is calculated from image resolution, inclusion of exif/iptc info, votes, comments, views and favorites.

    2. 100$ in cash for the person that collected the most photo karma during the contest overall. For example, you may have submitted 50 great photos but you did not win the "best photo" prize. This prize values the contribution you made despite not having the one best photo.

    3. 50$ for the best engager. Those that do not have wildlife photos of their own can still win a prize by being an example community member: posting comments, identifying species, marketing JungleDragon outside the main website, etc. Since this winner cannot be calculated by raw numbers, this winner will be selected by a jury (me).

    4. 100$ for nature. To show our commitment to wildlife preservation, JungleDragon will donate 100$ to a wildlife charity that is to be decided as per the end of this contest.

    RULES

    1. Use only one JungleDragon account per person

    2. The contest runs from Dec 1 - Dec 30 2011, only photos submitted between that period apply to the contest. Do not repost photos you contributed earlier.

    3. Payment to the winners is done via Paypal only

    4. The normal photo rules apply for this contest:

    - You must be the owner of the image
    - The image must be on topic (wildlife, nature landscapes, animals, plants)
    - Slight variations of the same scene count as one contribution only
    - Frames and watermarks allowed but keep it reasonable
    - Post a reasonable minimum resolution and image quality

    5. You are allowed and even encouraged to market your own contributions outside JungleDragon

    6. Although we will not prevent you from deleting your own images, you are expected to keep your contributions on JungleDragon for all to enjoy after the contest.

    7. It it possible for the same person to earn both prize 1 and 2, resulting in a 200$ prize.

    8. Should the interest and amount of contributions in the contest be too small to reasonably select a valid winner, the organizer has the right to change the contest setup or to extend the timeline of the contest.

    9. Any photos submitted by the owner of JungleDragon (me) do not participate in the contest.

    And the final rule...good luck and have fun!

  13. @Andrey. Excellent, welcome on board and good luck! Replied 6 years ago
  14. A little tip to the participants: I regularly publish high quality contributions on the homepage carrousel, giving those photos extra exposure. Note though that I can only do that for landscape mode photos, and photos without frames. Other formats simply do not fit in the carrousel layout.

    You are of course free to use any photo orientation, size and frame.
