Head Admin


Admin Team



Apologies for the utter lack of updates this last month!  I received my first big girl teaching job and have been in a whirlwind trying to get everything together!  Submissions for the 'Animals Beginning with N or O' mini contest are closed and we will post the voting poll as soon as possible!  Thanks for your patience! :heart:

:star: September Theme 1 - Herbivores:star:

The current theme is Herbivores!!!  A herbivore is an organism anatomically and physiologically adapted to consuming only plant material, for example foliage, as the main component of its diet.  Herbivores are primary consumers and come in all shapes and sizes; to count in this folder a species must consume the majority of its diet (<70%) through vegetation.  You may submit 2 photos a week to the theme folder, subject to vote at the admin teams discretion.  Photos not fitting the theme description or not taken of captive animals will be declined.

This theme will change on Sunday, September 14!

:star:Member of the Month!!!:star:

Member of the Month!  Twice a month we will be featuring one members photos, two members a month and two blogs a piece.  To be considered for 'Member of the Month' the individual has had to have a photo accepted into either the feature or theme folder.  Members are chosen by admin team and may be member of the month only once!  Please take the time to congratulate and encourage each other!

:star:Submission Rules:star:

You may submit 2 photos per week into the bi-weekly theme and 1 photo per week into the featured folder. The current bi-weekly theme is Herbivores.

Here is how to submit a photo properly:

1. Join the club as a member.
2. Open our gallery and click on 'Submit to this Gallery.'
4. Choose which folder you would like to submit to by using the drop down menu.
5. Pick your photo, and you're set!

:star:Featured Folder:star:

This gallery is for photos that represent the best of our member's work.  Staff members will vote on these photos, it takes two accepts to be included in this gallery.  Be sure to submit your best work because we will accept nothing but the best. One submission per week.

Lions, tigers and wolves each take up 10% of the featured gallery, which is a lot of photos of just these animals. We therefore will be being more selective when voting on featured folder submissions for these types of animals. Please take this into account when choosing a shot to submit to the featured folder, as lions/tigers/wolves are taking up a third of this gallery!  

For a visual guide as to what shots will not be accepted into this folder, please see this journal: zoo-photographers.deviantart.c…

:star:Our Affiliates:star:

Thanks Everyone!  See you next week! :)
