Please let us (Carol aka bip and Joey) know what you think of the changes for the contest. Thanks. RULES: 1. The picture MUST be your own. 2. Only two entries per person per contest . Pictures can be older ones or new ones. They can be posted in ANY of the catagories you choose. The catagory combination does not matter as long as you only have two entries. 3. In the "title" field you must type in either "CA/SA Contest" or "African Cichlid Contest" 4. In the "description" field, you must type in either "Judge on Picture" or "Judge on Fish" 5. If you judge one picture in a certain catagory rate ALL pictures in that same catagory (even if it's a low rating) for your vote to be counted. For example, if you rate a picture in "African cichlid contest, judge on picture", please rate every contestants picture who posted in "African cichlid, judge on picture". This will help keep the same amount of votes for each entry. 6. HAVE FUN!!!! *** When you are rating a "Judge on Picture" entry, consider the clarity of the picture, the condition of the fish, and the shot difficulty. *** When you are rating a "Judge on Fish" entry, consider the overall look of the fish in the picture (don't base your rating on how much you like/dislike the species), and the condition of the fish. On a side note to contestants... If we can't see the fish in the picture because it's too blurry, too dark/bright, or your fish is behind a rock and all we can see is its mouth, then ratings for your fish will probably be low. Yes, I do realize that it is the "judge on fish" catagory, but keep in mind, it's hard to judge the fish if we can't see the fish.
