Fins, Fur & Feathers Foto Contest

That's right, February's contest has a theme, the title of which should be pretty much self-explanatory. If it flies, crawls, wriggles or swims then we all want to see it.


The pictures you submit also should be somehow related to self-propelled recreation in the outdoors. If you have an excellent wolf shot but you took it while leaning out of a helicopter then it doesn't count.

Now for the rules and regulations:

One picture per person. No restriction as to when the picture was taken.

Photos should be no smaller than 640 x 480 and no larger than 800 x 600. (If you are unsure how to resize your photos, this thread contains some helpful advice. )

* Email your picture to Neilluck @ videotron.ca (no spaces before or after @)
* Put "February photo contest" (without quotes) in the subject line so my email program will automatically sort it into the correct email folder.
* Indicate your CCR username right at the top of the email body text, above the picture. (these little details make lighter work)

The submission period runs from January 20, 2011 until February 15, 2011. Voting period to follow. That gives you roughly 24 squared hours to send in your picture.

One last thing: ensure that your entry is in JPEG format, respects the size limitations and is not a link to an on-line picture.Thanks!

Some people might consider their paddling partners or fellow forum members to be animals. :lol:

I would think that paramecia and nematodes qualify. They might require a special set-up to photograph outside of a lab however.

In order to give those last-minute types a chance the entry deadline has been moved into the future.

New deadline: Wednesday February 23 at 23:59:59.99.
