Welcome to the Reef2Reef POTM Contest - Photo of the Month

Sponsored by Avast Marine!

This month's subject - Non-Photosynthetic (NPS) Corals

Deadline to Enter: September 30, 2019 at 11:59 pm (EST)

Let's do a theme we haven't done in almost three years - Non-Photosynthetic (NPS) Corals. Remember, the photo has to have been taken by you, and the NPS coral has to be in your aquarium or the ocean. So who has some NPS to post to get things started?

This is a photo contest after all and we're looking for the best photograph. Yes, you can use a post-editing product to better your pictures. In fact, we encourage it. And a helpful little tip...don't forget about the cropping feature - composition can have a big impact on a photo.

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 and 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 up to 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. The winner will be posted and tagged in the voting poll and will have 48 hours to claim the prize.

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.

To All:

The theme of this month's contest has been altered to NPS Corals. It was originally said NPS Corals and Creatures, but the "creatures" was a little too vague and has thus been eliminated. I'm hoping this clears up the theme of this month's contest. For those of you that had previously posted an entry that has been removed, please feel free to reenter another NPS picture.

I apologize for the confusion and appreciate everyone's understanding.

Think it's pretty stupied I got like someone's Facebook to be able to win. What is people don't have Facebook like me? I don't have one because I don't want hear people moaning or bragging. Just my opinion.
