:star: Mini Contest v. 35 - Animals Beginning with 'L' - Voting:star:

Thank you very much for the many entries to this contest! It was a tough decision which 10 photos are the best ... we tried to take those which fit best to the theme and are great photographs at once.

Please vote here: :bulletgreen: VOTING:bulletgreen: (Thanks to Shadow-and-Flame-86 for posting the poll!)

:star:1st place - 40 points
:star:2nd place - 20 points
:star:3rd place - 5 points

The voting ends Sunday the 20th of April when the winners will be announced!

If you have some spare points you are able to donate to support the mini contests, please donate them to the personal DA page of a head admin (wind-princess or Misty-Dawn) specifying they are to support Zoo-photographers mini contests to help keep them running. Every little helps! All donators will be featured for a week here at the group journal.

:star:April Theme 2 - ASIA:star:

Our current theme is Asia!  

This means any zoo photo of an animal which is native to Asia only!  Each submission is subject to two votes and acceptance is at the admin teams discretion.  Photos which do not fit the theme or abide by group regulations will be declined.  A list of acceptable animals is available in the description of the group folder, please review group rules if needed!

This theme will run for two weeks and will change on Wednesday, 30th of April!

: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 Asia.

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:

Be sure to drop by and check out some of our affiliate pages!  Especially if you're looking for wild photo or non-limit groups while you're waiting on the new theme folder!

Thanks Everyone!  VOTE and See you next week! :)
