The Nature, Wildlife and Pet Photography Forum (NWP)Contest Rules

Note - This first Photo of the Day contest is NOT a charity even though the proceeds will be donated to charitable causes that are working to help re-build the Gulf Region area that was affected by Katrina. This means that photographs and money spent on this contest are NOT tax deductible as we are not a registered 503/c.

All photographs entered must involve the themes of nature, wildlife or pet photography. Any image that does not contain one of these themes will be eliminated from the contest. NWP has sole discretion to determine what constitutes images that fits into these categories.

There is a $10.00 USD entrance fee for one image. All images must be approved by NWP before it will be displayed in the gallery.

Daily Selections, Monthly Winners
Our contests are open to both amateurs and professionals. Each day, one photograph for each category, (in the event of multiple categories) will be selected as a Photo of the Day. At the end of the month, one photograph will be picked as the Photo of the Month (in each category should there be multiple categories).

Winners of the Photo of the Day will receive name recognition and a copy of their picture on our frontpage for the day. The winner of the Photo of the Month will receive a cash prize in the form of a gift certificate to B&H Photo and Video, or like vendor. The amount of the prize will have a cash value equivalent to $150.00 (if the total number of entrys yield less money to the contest than $150.00, the prize will be reduced to that amount). Should more than 200 contestants enter the Photo of the Day contest, the prize will increase to a cash value of $250.00. Prize winners must be willing to provide the full size file of the image that won the contest.

All monthly winners are responsible for any applicable Federal, State and Local taxes/duties/tariffs as a result of this prize. Prizes will generally be delivered to the winning contestants within 90 days of the close of each month's contest, although it's possible there could be a greater delay if the prize in question is a product that hasn't yet become available in the general market.

Reviewing Submissions
All submitted images will be reviewed during the following month. For example, photographs that are submitted in September will be reviewed for the October Photo contest. Images submitted in October will be reviewed for the November Photo contest, etc. A Photo Of The Day (POTD) will be selected every day (or within every few days). At the end of the month, the Photo Of the Month (POTM) will be selected. Once the selections have been made, the winners are notified via email, and arrangements are made to ship them their prizes. At the discretion of the "sponsors" involved, prizes may either be shipped directly by NWP, or by the prize suppliers themselves. At the start of the following month, the winners' names and winning photos will be posted. All decisions of all judges are final.
