Okay, folks, let's get this gig on the road!

APF is hosting a contest where members can submit pics, members will vote on the best pic and that pic will be used in an Aquatic Photography Forum advertisement in Tropical Fish Hobbyist Magazine!

At this point, it will be a one time contest. If it proves to be popular, I'm sure Neoprodigy will want to do it again.

Just a reminder to members considering entering photos:

For the purpose of the contest, the photo submitted for voting must be 1000 pixels wide exactly. In the case of a vertically framed image, it must be no bigger than 1000 pixels high.

If your photo wins, you must be able to submit the exact photo but in larger resolution of at least 2500 pixels wide with a resolution of 300 dpi.
(this is critical)

The owner's name will appear on the photo in the advertisement.
