Prizes for photo competitions
« on: Mar 02, 2014, 05:58 PM »
We have been very fortunate this year in that we currently have sufficient prizes on offer to be able to award a prize in the photo competition every month this year -- and probably next year too.

Every month, we shall be announcing the intended prize during the call for entries, and again during the call for votes. The prizes will also be announced in newsletters and on our Facebook page.

Some months will bring us joint winners. At the beginning of the year, when all the prizes are still available, we shall do our utmost to find a second prize very similar to the one announced, so that both winners can receive an equivalent prize.

As the year goes on, if one of the joint winners of the competition has already received a prize during that same year, the prize will go to the other winner. If both have already received prizes, the prize will be deferred to a future month.

Next year, everything will start anew, and past prizes will not be taken into consideration.

We have some great prizes on offer -- so enjoy the photo competitions and make sure you vote!

We thought it would be good to update the information above, since over the past two years, we found that often, the people were winning in several competitions, and we wanted to ensure that more photographers could benefit from the prizes.

We continue to be very fortunate in that we have sufficient prizes on offer to be able to award a prize in the photo competition every month this year -- and quite possibly next year too.

Every month, we announce the intended prize during the call for entries, and again during the call for votes. The prizes are also announced in newsletters and on our Facebook page.

If a prizewinner has already received a prize during the current year, we shall offer the prize to the runner-up, unless the runner-up also has already received a prize during the same year, in which case the prize will be deferred to a later month.

Some months will bring us joint winners. If neither of the joint winners has already received a prize during the current year, we shall do our utmost to find a second prize very similar to the one announced, so that both winners can receive an equivalent prize.

If one of the joint winners has already received a prize during that same year, the prize will go to the other winner. If both have already received prizes, the prize will be deferred to a future month.

The following year (starting with the September competition), everything will start anew, and past prizes will not be taken into consideration.

We have some great prizes to look forward to -- so enjoy the photo competitions and make sure you vote!

This seems a good occasion to thank those generous donors who have been keeping the prize-giving element of the photo competitions going, for quite a number of years now. Since we first offered a prize in May 2014, there has never been a month without a prize on offer.

For most of this period, June has been proposing a jigsaw of the prizewinning photo as an alternative prize, and special thanks are due to her for giving us this choice.
