Our Photo of the Month competition has now been going on for half a year, and that's why we want to make it better and bigger. Which means change - again.
Here is why: Over the last two or three month we recieved almost only bird photos, which is mainly due to the season. This seems to have raised the impression among some photographers that we are too much bird-oriented, and they have expressed their desire for more categories. So, after some vivid discussions, we finally decided to give it a try and devide our main animal category into three more specific categories, which we want to present here:
The 3 main categories:
Category 1 : Birds
The additinonal category:
Category 4 : Varying theme category ("Sparrows" for February)
For the moment all of these categories will be on a monthly basis, but categories 2 and 3 might be altered to a 2- or 3-month cycle in winter, if we see that there are not enough entries. For each category a maximum number of 5 photos can be submitted.
We hope with this division to create an interest for photographers with other "specialities" than birds, and to make our competitions more pleasing for a broader public. Which leaves only one thing to be said: Please send us your great photos in order to fill the new categories up with natures' amazing beauty!
The new categories are valid from March and on. Good luck!
