The theme for MARCH is "DAWN/SUNRISE" Our February Monthly Contest Winner, Chris Boyack has no further explanation for the theme. So the interpretation and creativity is completely up to you! Let your creativity run wild, and we can't wait to see what you come up with!

The March contest will be open for entries beginning on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 and runs until midnight Saturday, March 29, 2013.

MEANING...The date this event is scheduled for is just a place holder for the deadline of the Monthly Photo Contest!

We are NOT meeting anywhere to shoot!

YOU HAVE TO HAVE TAKEN THE IMAGE YOU ARE ENTERING: We know this should be obvious, but we just want to clarify this. So no restored photos, Photoshop compilations or creations etc.

YOU CANNOT ENTER A PHOTO THAT HAS BEEN ENTERED IN A PREVIOUS MONTHLY CONTEST AND WON 1ST OR 2ND PLACE OR HONORABLE MENTION! Again, we know this should be obvious, but just in case you were thinking about doing this, we have been keeping records of the Monthly Contest Winners for quite a few years.

ONLY 1 ENTRY, PER MONTHLY CONTEST, PER GROUP MEMBER!! You can post multiple images to the Photo Album, but be sure to mark the additional images as EXHIBITION ONLY!

IMAGE SIZE: Please size your image 1024 pixels on the longest side, at 72 dpi.

PLEASE NOTE: If you paid your $10.00 contest fee to enter last month's contest YOU DON'T have to pay again to enter the monthly contests for the rest of the year.

IF YOU HAVEN'T paid to enter the contest, please be sure to do so BEFORE you enter your photo.  (The payment link can be found on the left sidebar where it says "Contest Entry Fee. You don't need a Paypal account to pay, just a credit card.) If you don't pay, no worries, your image will just be flagged as exhibition only!


Click the "PHOTO" tab on the navigation bar at the top of the Meetup site.

In the "PHOTO" tab, there will be a PHOTO ALBUM titled "2014 March Photo Contest: Dawn/Sunrise

Upload your entry there

Don't forget to give it a creative title, or I will give it a generic one!  LOL...much better if you name your image!

All submissions will be posted on this Meetup site.  If you don't want your image online, please don't post it!

    As we all know, Meetup has had some issues with their server. Teri and I have been unable to load images to the album. We will continue trying to do so. We are on top of what needs to be done, just not empowered to do it!

    Hang in there! This too shall pass!
