    It's that time of the month, and I've already received one submission before even asking :D

    Usual rules, and submissions in by the 20th as please!

    RULES & SUBMISSIONS

    Email entries to [email protected], or post it in this thread if you find that easier!

    > Picture must be your own!

    > Picture must be Zed or Zorg related. Whatever you think makes a great photo. It doesn't have to be a work of art, just something which encapsulates Zed ownership!

    > Photo does not need to have been taken during the month, but should be appropriate to the season/location. For example, no snow covered Zeds in June unless you live in the arctic.

    > "Photoshopped" entries are acceptable, but must be clearly stated that it has been edited with some basic details. Resizing, cropping, filters, resampling, recolouring etc.

    > If you wish to provide some extra information - such as camera type, composition, exposure, please feel free to do so. This is a photographic competition after all.

    > Only 1 entry to be submitted per person, per month.

    > Entry to be emailed to me as an attachment to gazhyde (AT) yahoo.com (dont worry about large file sizes, I have plenty of free space!)

    > Entries to be received by 20th of Month. Voting thread will be created as soon as possible after that date.

    > Voting will close automatically at the end of the competition!

    10 more days left for entries!

    Although I am tempted to extend it on till the 23rd to allow any Zed Fest photos. Or we could possibly have a Zed Fest special competition for August. What do people think?

    Here is my MR again this time with me on a ballistic trial in Northumberland last month. A great week it was with sun, top down motoring and us blowing the s*!t out of stuff during the day :) Picture was taken with a Nikon SLR and wide angle lens.

    I think that's a distinct possibility.

    I'm also thinking of another themed competition based around 'reflections'. Everyone on here are almost masters in the art of detailing, and have such shiney mirror like cars. Was thinking of featuring this and seeing what people come up with - likes Snoops cloud reflection from a month or so back.

    Maybe August can have a second competition based on Zed Fest and, September can be "showroom shine"?
    Well, it was three before I bumped the thread and now it's six! Usually get most of the images arrive in the last couple of days before closing.

    Just realised I won't be able to publish as usual when it closes on the 20th, as I will be at Zed Fest!

    Will extend the entries till noon on Sunday 22nd, and will post the voting poll sometime in the evening.

    I will also aim to run an extra Zed Fest photo competition next month.
