    Well, another month — another contest.
    Thanks again for all of those that entered last month, this month should be much bigger and better.
    The winner receives a new Fuji Digital Camera, worth $100. (this is really a great camera!!!!)
    For pictures of the camera and to look at pictures taken by the camera click here.

    NOTE: The subjects this month are CHILDREN & ANIMALS. Any type of animal and any type of child.
    Only one picture of each subject may be submitted. If a child or animal is included in a group that does count as being entered once.

    1. You can enter each day if you would like, but send ONLY ONE PHOTOGRAPH EACH DAY.
    2. The contest starts today, May 2, 2011 and goes until May 31, 2011.
    3. Here is the tricky part. Do not duplicate subjects, send only one picture of each subject. For example, if you have five children, send only one picture of each child. Only one picture of a cat, one picture of a dog, one buffalo, you get the idea. So this means, pick your favorite picture of each subject and send it, I only want your best.
    4. ONLY PICTURES TAKEN BY YOU ARE ELIGIBLE, pictures entered by ‘Frank’ must be taken by ‘Frank’.
    5. You can’t submit for someone else, everyone must enter their own pictures, using their own email.
    6. Your pictures are safe with me, I will ONLY use the images to judge the contest.
    7. Here is how to submit a photograph. Use this May 2nd blog to submit your entries. Just add a caption in the comment box, then attach the image using the browse button in the box below the comment box, then click ‘submit comment’.
    8. Bribing the judge (ME) is prohibited, but you can always try.
    9. Remember, enter only one picture per day.
    10. Because this is a family site, keep your photographs child friendly!!!!!
    11. Breaking any rule will disqualify you for that entry and that day.

    12. Any picture that has been used in a prior contest CAN BE USED AGAIN  !!!!!!!!

    Good luck everyone, please tell your friends and family to enter.
