Welcome back to the Picture of the Month Contest !

 

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, 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 copy the specific post location 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 February 1st, until February 28th.

The voting poll will be put up February 28th, or March 1st, and remain open for 15 days. The votes will be counted, and the winner  will be announced at the close of the poll.
Who knows, maybe you'll be nominated.



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 specific post where picture can be found


4. Please don't forget to vote for your favorite image at the end of the month!

 

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?

I'm nominating this one from Wildedibles. Such a beautiful aesthetically pleasing image of this dried remainder of what was a most detailed and interesting flower, preserved in its frozen state in the snow.....

A promise for the next spring.

Great nominations 8 !!!

The link should actually be to the location where the post is, so it can be verified to be in the current month.

I really do not mind editing for anyone who wants to nominate so don't worry too much about perfect format.....
