Announcing the October 2013 theme challenge - Humorous Bird Photo

The theme for October 2013 is 'Humorous Bird Photo'

This have proved a popular category in the past though we've not run it as a theme for a couple of years.

The entry must contain a wild bird or group of birds showing humour. It's appreciated that contriving humour with wild birds isn't the easiest thing to do, so the addition of a humorous caption may help things along - no text balloons in the photo though.

The rules must be adhered to in order to avoid disqualification - the Moderators decision is final.


1. Entry to have been taken in the last twelve months i.e. since 1st October 2012.
2. Date taken to be included in the entry - must at least include month and year.
3. Entry to be uploaded now and 21st October midnight.
4. Your entry must contain a photo of a bird or birds.
5. The bird(s) must be wild and can be of any species.
6. Location taken to be included and must include at least the county/state and country.
7. One entry per member.
8. Only minor image adjustment is permitted, such as cropping, sharpening, contrast, and levels. The photo must not be otherwise greatly manipulated i.e. objects should not be added/removed in order to enhance the shot - no composite images.
9. Once uploaded a photo is classed as an entry and cannot be replaced by another shot. However, you have until the closing date / time of this competition to ensure that your photo meets criteria.
10. The entry must be your own work and not previously submitted in a competition on this site.
11. The birds common name must be given - though please add the scientific too!
12. Entries to be uploaded directly by entrants to the Monthly Photo Competitions Gallery.

A voting booth will be posted after the 21st.

Please note 30 entries will be selected for addition to the voting booth for members to vote upon.

Entries not selected for the voting booth will be moved to the gallery categories appropriate for them as will the remainder on completion of voting.

Comments on entries are permitted.
