Congratulations Denorth 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 - JIMBOX01 - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5592&p=201106#p201106
JAN13 - POWER - SDLROB - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5845
FEB13 - BOATS - DENORTH - viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6049

JIMBOX01 - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 1
RACHIE_D - 1
SDLROB - 1
DENORTH - 1

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 11.59 UK time on March 31st, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on April 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 March 2013 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

TY[I]RES

As yet I can't give the rundown of positions and points as we are still awaiting Asphalt_World's votes, but Denorth is too far ahead now to be beaten regardless of one set of votes. As soon as his top 5 come in, I'll post the remaining results from February.

Congratulations Denorth! Reflecting Raikkonen in terms of winning on your first outing with a new team!

Interesting topic choice... I'm sure I have something from Spa last year. I'll have a dig through and see what I can find!

Congratulations Denorth, last month had one of the best selection of photos this competition has had so to win convincingly is a really good achievement.

Congrats Denorth, nicely done. I hope my Laptop gets fixed soon. For some reason I can post pics Only on this site from my phone.
Silly question: I too can put up my entry right? Or is it like invitation only?

I'll kick off this month's contest then: I was going to use a shot of SDLRob's wheelchair - it went down Eau Rouge so its tyres are pretty awesome! - but then i saw this.

I'm sure there's something wrong here

It's a shame the topic hasn't used the American spelling of "tyres" - I have a whole library of photos of my cat asleep I could have entered.

No it's actually from a transportation fair in sweden, I believe it was Peterson's car.

The Williams FW08B, Denorth! My favourite 6-wheeled F1 car, such a shame it never raced.

A decent entry, especially for a first-time competitor!

Just under 5 hours to go on this one, we'll see if we get any last-minute entries.

I'm also considering having two contests per month rather than just one, as after the first week or so the competition tends to dry up.

We're awaiting the final vote now, with only two points seperating the leading pair. As an aside it's interesting that two of you made the same suggestion for the next contest. Unfortunately both competitors are just outside the window of opportunity now.
