Welcome back to the Picture of the Month Contest !

 

We need to say how much we all appreciate every one who participates in this contest, including all of you who simply enjoy the pictures.
Here we can take a short moment, to nominate and give recognition to the photographers and images you think have gone above and beyond on this forum. Pictures that awed and inspired you, deserve to be given credit and recognition.


Thank those who shared them in the Forums with a nomination. Whether they be artsy, creative, documented accomplishments, or just downright impressive, this is where we want you to recognize them. If you love it, post it here.

When you nominate an image please upload the image to this thread, tell us who took the picture, and where to find it. There's a wealth of quality pictures every month here, and many of us want to see them and recognize those behind the lens. Good luck to all of those involved. Nominations can be made from August 1st, until August 31st.

The voting poll will be put up August 31st, or September 1st, and remain open for 15 days. The Winner will be announced at the close of the poll.
Who knows, maybe you'll be nominated. Please remember to vote at the end of the month !



To Nominate a Picture:

1.The picture must be taken by a member of Mycotopia.net - no self nominations.

2. *(Rule adjustment to extended time frame)* 
Picture's must be posted to Mycotopia.net during the current contest month, or within the last 15 days of the month prior.


3. Please include the member's name, the picture to be nominated, and a link to the post where picture can be found

 

4. Please don't forget to vote at the end of the nomination period !!!

 

5. At contest end, a print of the winning photo can be obtained here as long as the owner is willing:  

 

Would you like to own a print of the winning POTM photo?

Some really amazing shots this month.   It's always so hard to single one out, when they are all so outstanding on their own merits....
