JIMBOX01 - 4
SDLROB - 2
SPECDECIBLE - 2
RACHIE_D - 2
HAZ - 2
BLAKE - 2
DENORTH - 1
TOBY - 1
MACCA84 - 1
ALIENTURNEDHUMAN - 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 5th.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me along with a topic idea for next month - winner's choice carries - 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 10 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 may be made in advance.

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 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

GREEN

MrMuttley - 6
Kevin McDonald - 6 [Docked 10 for not voting, which cost the victory].

Wow, winner.... by default!!

Although, if Kevin had voted then either I still would have won or all three of us would have tired for the lead, which would have made PF1-Mod's job very interesting...

If there isn't a rule for ties, maybe a rule should be introduced that in the event of a tie the first winner is the person who entered their photo first.

We already had a backup system in place - emergency convening of three moderators, each nominating their preferred winner. Kevin would have won on that had he voted to ensure the tie.

What happens if the three moderators all pick a different winner? :D

8O :lol:

Congrats on the win Alien.

Not sure what I'm going to do this month. Plenty of my photos have green in them. Trees, fields, tanks. That sort of thing. But I'm not sure that any of them fit a theme of green.

Thanks, green doesn't have to mean green in the environmental sense. I deliberately chose it so it could be approached in different ways. I like more abstract topics.

I'm climbing the Orme today so I expect that will provide a shot or two for this contest.

So a 10-point penalty to SDLRob for mocking P-F1 God - I mean er, Mod...

No, because Chuck Norris doesn't take photos, he freezes time then takes what ever the hell he wants.

Jimbox... That is a beautiful pic... you may be frightening the competition off. However, I will find something to try to give ya go. Don't ever stop, we need ya to make the rest of us work harder to keep up, 'tis the only way to improve to my mind.
:)

In all seriousness, Jimbox, you really do beautiful work, it is always such a pleasure to see your art... and believe this old art teacher, your work truly is art.
:)

I don't have anything I like for the theme of green so I took this today. A plushie Crocodile called Giuseppe holding a can of Relentless Green energy drink.

I'll throw one in. I didn't have many green photos, so this was about as close as I could get.

Right, so Tufty's promised entry again failed to materialise, so he's 50 points down again. Not an April fool, I did it last time Tufty. Covalent unfortunately didn't get the resize done in time.

Entries are therefore as follows:
