Admin Team


Thanks everyone, for sticking with us, we'll try to offer you new theme folders each month for you to submit your photos to, while the Featured folder will of course be open for your best shots at all times :)

Since the group's focus lies, as the name suggests, with zoo photography, try to make sure your submitted photos were taken at a zoo, and if possible, specify at which one they were taken.
If your photo was not taken at a zoo, I'm afraid we can't accept it.

:star:Two Folders Open :star:
This time, we are visiting continents -  meaning it's the origin of the species you photographed, that matters.
If possible, try to include the animal's origin and/or full name in either the description or keywords to make things easier for both yourself and us, though of course, we will check and let you know :)

:star: Asia :star:
Species originating from Asia. For a given list of species, see:…, otherwise any species from the following 48 countries:
Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brunei, Cambodia, China, Cyprus, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lebanon, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Burma, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia,

:star: Call for Admins :star:
We are still looking for a few active members who would be willing to vote on a few pictures every week or so.  If you, like me, remember what this group has been and would like to see those standards return please send me a message with a short 'why I would like to be an admin' explanation.  As I said, I will not entrust the group to anyone I am uncertain will respect our quality and members - but I know we have many wonderful members who would be an asset to the group.  Please include thumbnails of you best work, especially any feature folder shots, in the message to show you understand the standards we hold those submissions to.

We need members who can devote time to voting on folder submissions AT LEAST once every two weeks!!!  As well as answering any questions and providing feedback as requested by our members.  This is our main concern and we will introduce other duties later as needed or desired.

:star: Submission Rules :star:
You may submit 2 photos per week into the open themed folder and 1 photo per week into the featured folder. The current themes, as mentioned before are Asia and Africa. Here is how to submit a photo properly:

1. Make sure you have photos taken at zoos in your gallery.
2. Join the club as a member.
3. 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!
