Our Lives in Stasis

Monthly competitive series is here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


2012 is here and so is the Monthly Competitive Series!!!!

This is how it works:

  1.   This competition is open to anyone and everyone.
  2.   There are (12) months therefore, a guaranteed amount of (12) prize packages.
  3.   Prize pack contents may vary month to month depending on sponsor support.
  4.  Each month an entrant is allowed to submit a MAXIMUM of (3) photographs.
  5.   To enter:   Anyone wishing to enter must email their submissions to STATICINSTANTS@GMAIL.COM.  Please include in the subject or body which photo you would like to apply to what month, your location, and your username……please!  No nudity or obscene material.
  6. Voting: Voting will be tabulated by comment votes.  If you would like to vote simply add a comment that contains the NUMBER of the photo you wish to vote for.  Voting is open from the first day to the last day of the month.
  7. After voting is concluded i will contact the winner and then obtain a mailing address and ship the wining material if the winner is located in the United States.  If  you reside outside of the United States please include that with your email so that an alternative and equivalent replacement can be made unless shipping charges are nominal to those of the United States.  I apologize for any inconvenience.
  8. Point System:  The top four shots of each month will also be assigned “points”.  First would gain (10) points, second (7), third (5) and fourth would be (3).  The corresponding places will have special blog buttons detailing their success so that they can share with the world.  Entrants can check their points via the Leader board Page.
  9. At the years end or December 31st 2012, the overall point leader will win the competitive series as well as a grand prize.
  10. HAVE FUN and SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You said voting is open from the first to the last of the month. So does this mean January voting happens in January or it starts at the beginning of February and goes until the end of that month?

    • Anyone can submit up to 3 shots for the topic of any month. During the month if someone has a shot up that you like you would just comment the pic number to act as the vote. Now if someone wants to they technically can enter 3 shots on the 1st, 18th, and 31st if they wanted. Obviously the 31st insertion would be pointless to even submit because hardly anyone would even see it to vote. At the end of the month, 1/31 technically, then I can add up the number and declare a winner. The new monthly comp would then begin Feb 1.
