    Terraforum’s Third Annual Calendar Contest for 2013!

    Hello folks! It’s that time again where we want you to whip out your cameras and take the opportunity to strut your CP growing and photography skills!

    Rules, rules, rules, rules….

    As with the previous calendar contests, all rules must fulfill the minimal requirements for submission. If your submission fails to uphold all the rules, it is in danger of being disqualified. The rules are slightly different this time around so, please read through them.
    1) Minimum size for submissions will need to be a size of 3264 x 2448 pixels (8 MP) or higher.
    2) Photos must be of a carnivorous plant or plants, taken by you. The plant(s) in addition, must also belong to you, or be photographed in-situ.
    3) Photos submitted must be in landscape format.
    4) You may submit up to 5 photographs this contest.
    5) You may submit photos submitted in other contests aside from the calendar contests (ie POTMs/PlantOTMs)
    6) DO NOT post your submissions on this thread, rather please send them as an attachment to: . Your submissions will be prescreened by a judging panel and photos chosen will be posted on this thread for the final community voting.
    7) Please include your name, username, the name of the plant (scientific), and any additional info you'd like to add such as location data for in-situ photos, or cultivation perimeters.
    8) By submitting, you are allowing Terraforums to utilize your photo for the 2013 calendar publishing as well as possible post-photo processing (if necessary) and cropping of your photos.

    Because of the late start getting the calendar together, submissions must be submitted by November 7th, 11:59pm (PDT). Community voting process will commence from November 8th to November 15th.

    Have fun taking those photos and good luck!

    Two questions.

    1. Who does the prescreening "judging panel" consist of?
    2. landscape format? Wide instead of tall, yes?

    p.S.
    thank you in advance for putting together yet, another cool calender.
    hope you're able to approve my pics this year..
    I've had a few set aside just for this.

    To answer your questions:
    1) Frankly, I don't think it matters who is part of the judging panel--we will make unbiased selections based on the photo's content, composition, focus, perspective, not based on a member's status in the community. A good photo is a good photo. Everyone has a fair chance. The judging panel may be revealed after the prescreen process, but to keep things unbiased as possible, we will keep the panel under wraps for now.

    2) Yes, wide instead of tall.

    No problem, and good luck Mass and everyone else

    Please clarify: by granting TF the right to "utilize your photo for publishing", what exactly does that permission include? Are we granting TF' the right to use the photo(s) for any/all purposes in the future, for promotional purposes? If so, this needs to be expressed in much more specific language, please. If we are granting permission for the photo(s) for the purpose of generating the content for this calendar only, that needs to be stated clearly. Thanks.

    The title of this thread is regarding the 2013 calendar contest so your photos will be used in the production, sale, and giveaway of that calendar. I wouldn't use a photo from a calendar contest for any other reason, just like I have not in the past 2 years... If I came up with an idea for something else regarding any of the pictures I would definitely seek additional permission for that.

    Thank you for elaborating on that, Andrew. In this era of intellectual property as it pertains to artists, photographers more than ever face situations where their work is potentially at risk for being used in ways it was not intended. So it's important to seek clarification of "terms of use" clauses so people know explicitly what their work is being sold/given for. I did not intend on making this a contentious issue, I simply wanted to be very sure in my own mind what "utilize your photo for publishing" meant in this context. Thanks!

    I look forward to everyone's submissions; there have been a lot of amazing photos appear here over the months.
