Congratulations Jimbox01 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
DEC12 - SOUND - JIMOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5592&p=201106#p201106

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 January 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on February 3rd.

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 January 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

POWER

You're only the youngest double PF1 Photo competition champion because you have an Adrian Newey designed camera ;)

Donate it to the fund for remote server access for the mods? :P

Well I've been sending my subscription cheques to Tufty every month like he told me, maybe they're getting lost in the post or something when he forwards them on?
Anyway, it's no wonder you're hard up if you're spending all your money on servants!


@Alien
actually it was taken with my old bridge camera, more of a Gordon Murray design.

My missus used to have one of those.









Talking about the 2CV's in the background of course.

Sending money to Tufty? You realise you're probably funding some sex-based student shenanigans?
