Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

    2019 Photo Contests schedule and intent

    Discussion in 'Photo of the Month' started by Chicxulub, Dec 4, 2018.

      Good morning all!

      This thread is for the discussion of the photo contests for next year.

      First and foremost, make sure you take note of the new email address:

      mfkcontests@gmail.com

      As always, you MUST include either TOTM or POTM as appropriate in the subject line and your MFK user name MUST be somewhere in the body of the message or I will simply delete the email and move to the next.

      The schedule-
      January: TotM
      February: PotM
      March: TotM
      April: PotM
      May: TotM
      June: PotM
      July: TotM
      August: PotM
      September: TotM
      October:. PotM
      November: TotM
      December: PotM

      The first and most major change is as follows: I will no longer be taking entries throughout the month of the contest, and then arbitrarily starting the contest sometime near the end of the month. Moving forward, entries will be accepted any time before the contest begins. Contests will then be posted in the first week of the month they're scheduled for (see the schedule above), hopefully on the first Monday of every month. If not the first Monday, then definitely sometime in the first week. Voting will be allowed until the last week of the month, at which point I will announce the winner in time to prevent overlap with the next contest.

      Also, I am going to be FAR more strict in enforcing the no re-entry rule for a particular contest for the rest of the year. Due to my having lost data in 2018, we had one winner get around this rule. I didn't catch it however, so that's on me. ;)

      Included in this is the fact that this year's *OTY winners are not eligible to enter into any of whichever 2019 contest they happened to win. For example, if you win Photo of the Year in 2018, you can't enter any Photo of the Month in 2019 to give others a chance. You could still enter Tank of the Month however.

      Please feel free to go ahead and enter the January TotM contest using the email above!

      Good luck!

      Sorry if I'm misunderstanding but under the new system does it mean I can for example send you an entry for the marchTOTM now and it will be included or do we need to wait for you to announce you are accepting entries like last year?
      Also thanks for getting this up and running again, always enjoy the competitons each month.

      You can send at any time, and any entries I receive will go into the next scheduled contest for which the entry is appropriate. You don't need to wait for my announcements to enter; those are just my attempt at drawing attention to the ability to enter.

      You can send in either at any time. One can request a month for an entry if they wish. I have one inbox, so I just sort pics into the appropriate contest when the time comes

      Oh

      It's a new year so that's reset. Only *otY winners are on a blanket restriction this year, and only from the contest they won.
