    Alright everyone, we are finally ready to start with the photo contest in February 2013. We ask that everyone keep these rules in mind.

    PHOTO CONTEST RULES

    1. Each monthly photo contest will run from the first day of the month until the 20th day of the month. All entries must be posted to the thread no later than midnight forum time on the 20th.
    2. Voting will begin on the 21st and run until the 25th.
    3. You may only vote once.
    4. In the event of a tie there will be a special 24 hour vote to determine the winner.
    5. You may only submit pics you own/own the copy rights to. This means you can not submit a pic you found on a search engine. You may post pics of tarantulas you current own or have owned. Any one submitting pics fraudulently will be immediately disqualified.
    6. One entry, per person, per month.
    7. You may not vote for your own picture. If you do you will be disqualified.


    We will create a thread for each new month. Please watch for special themed contests. We can't wait to see your pics!
