PostSubject: PotM and PotY Rules and Topics   Tue Aug 02, 2011 9:57 am

Picture of the Month (PotM) and Picture of the Year (PotY) Rules and Topics

Every month (August through March) we will hold a PotM Contest on the forum, and then in April the PotY Contest will be held. During the first three weeks of each month (August-March), members can enter 1 photo into the PotM Contest for that month. The last week of each month, a poll will take place to decide who wins the PotM Contest for that month. The picture that wins the PotM Contest will be displayed on the Portal/Homepage of the forum for the following month. Members will receive 5pts. for entering a picture in PotM Contests, and the winner of the PotM Contest will receive an additional 5pts. In April, the PotY Contest will be held. For the PotY Contest, members will vote on which winning PotM picture was their favorite. The picture that wins the PotY Contest will be displayed on the Portal/Homepage for the following month, and the winner of the PotY Contest will receieve 5pts. Rules for the contests are as follows...

Points are awarded for participation in the club and on the forum. Then at the end of the school year, we are either going to give a prize to the person with the most points or several prizes to the people with the most points (we haven't decided yet; it will depend on how my fundraising attempts go). Unfortunately, though, only members of the Aquarist Club at USF (not including Honorary forum members) can earn points and be eligible to win the prize(s). Sorry, Eric. Sad However, there are still incentives for Honorary Members. For instance, if you win the PotM, you won't receive points, but your picture will be displayed on the Portal/Homepage, which is pretty cool. Wink

Thanks for understanding. I'd include Honorary Members in the point system, but in order to be eligible for USF Student Government Activity & Service (A & S) Funding, I can't include non-USF students... Sad
