The Challenge

We are looking for a new avatar for the group, and would like to see your best shot that you think will best represent what the group is all about.
Your shot should be framed so it will be able to be used as in the example shown. We reserve the right to choose another shot from the top ten if the winning one does not work as a suitable avatar. However the winner will still become a featured member

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for your favourite photo and the one that you think you would like to see on all group messages going out to members

Rewards & Prizes

The winning shot will be the group avatar for the following three months. The top ten will receive banners. The winner will also become a featured member and their work will appear on the group front page

Additional Information

As usual your photo has to be in the group to enter the challenge…so please check and make sure if it isn’t already in the group you add it before entering the challenge or it will be removed from the challenge
