    Welcome to the Reef2Reef POTM Contest - Photo of the Month
    Sponsored by Avast Marine!


    This month’s subject: Aquatic Snails


    Deadline to Enter: March 31, 2018 at 11:59 pm (EST)


    Nearly all of us have snails as part of our clean up crews. Not often the prettiest things, but they have their job to do. Well your job this month is to capture one of them at work! Take a great shot of one of your crew members and post it here to enter. It really is that easy!

    Prize: POTM Winner Banner, one year free Premium Membership and an Avast Marine Porthole courtesy of Avast Marine. Details below. (Note: Winners located outside the United States will be responsible for applicable shipping costs)

    How To Enter:
    Entering is easy, just a few simple guidelines to follow:
    • Enter one photo, taken by you of the subject for the month before the deadline
    • Multiple entries, off subject photos, or broken image links will be disqualified
    • Entries must be submitted before the deadline
    • Photo must be taken by you, whether in your tank or in the ocean
    • You must have an avatar uploaded when you enter
    • Prior winner (within the last 6 months) are welcome to enter, but not eligible for the prizes
    • In order to qualify to win the Avast Marine Porthole you must also like the Avast Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/avast.marine/
    Winner Selection:
    The mod team will select the top 15 finalists and a poll will be created and posted in the Reef Discussion Forum. The Grand Prize Winner will be determined by Reef2Reef member voting. To be eligible to vote, you must have been a member for 30 days and have 25 meaningful posts. Votes by members not meeting this criteria will be disregarded in the final count. In the case of a tie, the mod team will assist in choosing the winner. Rules, deadlines and terms are subject to change, without notice, at any time.

    As this is a photography competition, and the goal is to recognize the highest quality picture. So take your time, do your post shot editing, and submit your best image.
