Rules For Playing

UPDATE: August 4/15 - I am clarifying and simplifying these so that there's no confusion... I hope this helps and makes it fun!

These rules are set in place because it helps to make things fair for everyone.

  1. Members submit 1 photo related to the theme for the week (instructions below if needed).
  2. Members vote on each photo (1 vote per photo) by commenting "vote" under the photo by 7 pm on the last day of the theme. (Likes do not count as votes)
  3. Admin (me) will tally votes at the end of the week and will put winning photos on the blog.
  1. You must be a past/present resident of Alberta.
    • In order for you to be added to the group, your Facebook profile must clearly display that you qualify. If you have a problem with this rule, please find another group.
  2. Photo must have been taken BY YOU! Timer use is allowed.
    • If you submit a photo that is not your work, you will be warned once. If it happens again, you will be banned from the group.
  3. Photos AND comments must be appropriate.
    • No nudity, coarse language, violence, etc.
  4. Photos must be uploaded from your computer, not a Facebook album (Instructions below).
  5. Photo must not have won before.
    • It cannot have placed in any past theme. Eg. if you entered a photo for the "Insects" theme but it did not win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, you may enter it in "Small" if it applies to the theme.
  6. Photoshop/Watermarks are allowed as long as they are not over-edited.
  7. You may vote for yourself if you'd like.
  • Winning photos will be posted on the blog and names will be "tagged" on each post.
  • This group is for FUN! It is to encourage everyone to improve on their skills, find new techniques, and seek advice of other photographers.
  • Admin will not tolerate criticism, inappropriate comments, rude behaviour, or any type of abuse. If you see any, please report it to the Admin.
  • If you are found guilty of any of the above behaviour, you will be banned from the group without warning.
  1. By the group title, you will see "Add Photo/Video".
  2. When the options appear, click "Upload Photos/Video".
  3. Select the photo you want to submit and click "Open".
  4. If desired, describe your photo or explain the theme in your photo to encourage others to vote for your photo.
  5. You're Done! Good luck!
