Otters and Meerkats - Features 28/11/15

Mustelidae and Herpestidae: put simply otters, meerkats and family!

Avatar Challenge #2

This challenge closed over 5 years ago.

The Challenge

With all kudos to Di, and thanks to her of course, I think a change of avatar is in order.

Once again you all have the opportunity to find an otter or meerkat (or badger, ferret, mongoose etc etc) to be the new face of the group.

PLEASE no work that has already won a challenge in the group, let’s see something different!

The winner will become the featured member and the avatar will stay up until I get bored again :-P

In the event of a 2 way tie, I shall share the honour, using each avatar for a couple of months.

Of course Otters and Meerkats are the name of the group but if you have added work that is from another part of the family, that is fine too!

PLEASE no work that has already won a challenge in this group, let’s see something different!

Judging / Voting Criteria

PLEASE vote. EVERY vote counts :-D

Rewards & Prizes

Banners, kudos and winning image to be the group avatar until further notice.

The winner will become the featured member and the avatar will stay up until I get bored again :-P

In the event of a 2 way tie, I shall share the honour, using each avatar for a couple of months.

In the event of a many way tie, I shall extend voting time by a week and nag people to vote so that we can have a clear winner :-P

Additional Information

Might be a voucher challenge… if there are enough entries and if there is enough voting activity (ie 1st place winning with more than 1 or 2 votes and not tying with 5 other people!!!!) :-P

If I do not have to extend the challenge, this will finish on Christmas Day. :-)
