How will the winners be chosen?
Entries will be accepted through the end of the month. At that time, the contest gallery will close and a new theme will be posted for the following month. For two weeks you will be able to rate and comment on the photos in the gallery. Then, the top 15 photos will become finalists and we'll post a poll in this forum to determine the two winners. The poll will remain open for a week, meaning that we'll know who the winners are about 3 weeks after the submission deadline.
If you win first place, your B&H gift card will be sent to you via PM/e-mail*. If you're in second place, we'll automatically upgrade your forum account so that you can upload even more pics to the site! Good luck!
*If you live outside of the US, we can mail you an item up to the gift card value free of charge.
There really isn't much to say here, except by entering you agree to allow NikonForums.com to share links to your work via social media channels and publish your work on our homepage if you end up winning. Note that in order to qualify for this photo contest, your entry must be taken with a Nikon camera.
Limit 1 submission per person. If you submit multiple photos, you will have until the end of the month to delete all but your final submission. At the end of the month, if you still have multiple submissions, they will be disqualified and removed from the contest gallery.
Once again, good luck and I hope you enjoy this official photo contest! Please post any questions you may have in this thread.
