Congratulations Rachie_D for winning last month's competition. Below are the history, rules and topic of this contest.

COMPETITION HISTORY:
SEP12 - SPA - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3845
OCT12 - MOVEMENT & MOTION - SPECDECIBLE - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4319
NOV12 - DARKNESS - RACHIE_D - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5014

RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 900 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 23.59 UK time on December 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on January 3rd 2013.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me, and NOT to one of the other mods - they will not oversee the competition unless I am unavailable for any reason.

Only one photo is permitted per member, and may be changed at any point until the deadline. The photo has to have been taken by the member posting it.

Members may not vote for themselves, and since not voting gives you a higher chance of winning, it will be penalised by a deduction of five points [points are allocated as 10 for each first-placed vote, 6 for 2nd, 4 for 3rd. 3 for 4th and 2 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements will be made.

I think that about covers the rules, other than to add that indecent images are subject to the same rules in this thread as the rest of the forum.

All that remains is for me to announce the title. Therefore the December 2012 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

SOUND

For those of you who want to know the full rundown of the points from November, here are the scores:

1: 36 - Rachie_D
2: 34 - Jimbox01
3: 33 - PzR Slim
4: 17 - SDLRob
5: 12 - SpecDecible [docked 5 points for not voting]
6: 12 - Tootsie323
7: 6 - Tufty

The new points system does make for a tighter fight throughout the field, so I'm keeping it.

Could have gone for noisy cars or bikes (got lots of them), geese, dogs, or even a high school band, but decided on this...

Apologies, we need to keep the competition rolling, and I already lost one day of this one. Had it cost you a win I could have waited a little longer in the interests of fair play.

Nice Tufty - you should have entered it last month as "Darkness on the TV" :P

From the EMP Museum in Seattle, hundreds of guitars being played by computers (recreating actual musicians) that you can listen to on headphones at the bottom.

Probably - I think this was the night after the one where I went home early and didn't even wake up when the wheelchair joined me!

It was... It was also the one and only night I didn't drink as the monsoon during FP1 had set my knees off, so I was on painkillers.... Which meant I remember the whole night :lol:

For those who don't know what we are talking about... These three loons were part of our gang at this years Belgium GP.

Right, since I won't be about for the end of the month [apparently it's New Years' Eve, and even us mods have things we'd rather be doing then moderating!] I'm calling this one to a close a day early. Hopefully that's not a problem for anyone - the thread's been quiet since the 19th so I'm happy to call an end to it.

Usual format, I'll PM all entrants and we'll have a new thread early next year, most likely the 4th :)

The final entries are as follows:

Right now there are only 5 points in the contest - we're awaiting one more vote, and that person could also be crucial to determining next month's topic.
