    @rball: dont think that's a good idea...what if the plants are photographed in the wild. or a lot of people enter? that would mean a lot of plants... plus i dont think anybody would want to give away ANY of their prized specimens....

    what happens if a macro shot of a D. capensis takes the cake, and a N. macrophylla was an entry? someone's gonna be effin pissed. O_O

    what would probably be better is if some generous soul offered to put up a plant for the 1st prize, another for a 2nd, and yet another for a 3rd....(just to clarify, the generous soul does not have to offer all 3 prizes, ideally multiple people would donate for the contest)

    it was just an idea, the plant photographed wouldnt have to be the one for trade could be seeds a cutting or something but donateing is a good idea.

    Having a prize for the winner is probably a good idea but requiring anyone who wants to submit a pic to also donate a plant - not so much ...

    In Matt's photo contest on another forum, he even coordinates prize donations from different countries so people who live in Europe or Canada can also win something. His contest runs 3-4 times per year - not monthly. I suspect a monthly contest with prizes would be tough to keep going.

    You could also hold a monthly contest where the winners are entered into a quarterly (or semi-annual or annual) run-off contest for prizes... (thinking out loud).

    Somewhere in here, a rough definition of 'macro' is probably going to be needed...

    The classic definition of macrophotography is that the magnification is from 1x to 25x and the distance from the film plane to object is under 1 meter. 1x means the image falling on the film or image sensor is the same size as the object. Thus an object 1 cm in diameter would have an image 1 cm in diameter on the sensor/film plane. Greater than 25x is considered microphotography and less than 1x is close-up photography.

    It should just be for fun or pick the best out of the past 12 best of the month for inclusion in the calendar.
