    Get your entries in for this months competition! We will be running the competition differently this month as a trial. The submission and voting system will be using the Media Gallery system, and if it proves successful adopted for future competitions.

    Standard rules apply. Please see second post for details on submitting your entry.

    NO EMAIL ENTRIES PLEASE! Contact GazHyde if you have issues uploading your image.
    1. Picture must be your own, or by your co-pilot!
    2. 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!
    3. 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.
    4. "Photoshopped" entries are acceptable, but must be clearly stated that it has been edited with some basic details. Resizing, cropping, filters, resampling, recolouring etc.
    5. 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.
    6. Only 1 entry to be submitted per member, per month.
    7. Entries to be submitted by 20th of the month. Any ratings which have been applied to the images before this date will be removed.
    8. Voting (now called rating) will start as soon as possible after that date.
    9. The highest rated image at around 5pm on the final day of the month will be awarded the winner. (In the event of a tie, the most 'Likes' will be taken in to account)

    I got there eventually Gary, but it wasn't straightforward. :D The picture wouldn't upload, I guess because it was too big. I used a resizer site to make it smaller.

    I will recheck my calculations for the auto image resize on upload. I was test uploading 6MB images, and they were resizing/compressing down to about 500KB, well within the 2MB limit :computer:

    Ah, that would explain it. The largest image I have access to is 6.99MB, which is one of yours from the September 2011 competition! At least I know what I'm aiming for now :wideyed:
