In its Sixth Edition, the Picture of the Day (POtD) competition is perhaps the most popular thread in the history
of Model Mayhem.  The previous edition ran over 470 pages, with more than 18,800 posts.

What makes the POtD unique is the innovative approach taken to the competition by its creator and original host
Craig Seay.

The POtD allows for great flexibility of expression, while keeping the playing field as level as possible for both
novice and experienced photographers, models, and others.  The competition is fun and yet challenges everyone
that participates in it!

A special word of thanks goes to Craig for his wonderful and lasting contribution!

Enter your best work and vote for your favorite image! The Picture of the Day winner will be posted at the top of the thread and proceed to the Winners’ Gallery web-site the following day.

VOTING CLOSES at 12:00 AM Eastern Time (official US time) or shortly thereafter at the discretion of the contest staff.

Please make every effort to cast your vote by Midnight Eastern Time.  All voting officially ends when the Red End-of-day banner is dropped, with no votes for a given day counted afterward.


http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i164/trwillm/POtD/rules.jpg
1. No mature (18+) images or links as defined by Model Mayhem’s mature image guidelines found here.  Mature images include:

-  Female nipples or areolae
-  Bare buttocks,
-  Flaccid penises,
-  Pubic area,
-  Bondage,
-  Depictions of blood,
-  Depictions of violence *,
-  See through clothing which shows any of the above.


Also forbidden are images that include:

-  Spread shots (vaginal or anal),
-  Erect penises,
-  Explicit sexual content * ,
-  Shots that focus primarily on the genitals or anus.


* NOTE: This is at the discretion of Model Mayhem Moderators and the Picture of the Day staff. 

Additionally, the Picture of the Day (POtD) staff reserves the right to disqualify any image at their discretion and without explanation.

The POtD is viewable by the public.  If your entry is mature or questionable then you might be sent a private message requesting that you remove the image using the forum’s Edit command.  Otherwise the entry may be disqualified and removed from view.

Please consider Model Mayhem's 18+ Pic of the Day competition for images ineligible for the Picture of the Day – Original Edition or Pic of the Day.  The 18+ competition is found here.

2.  You may only enter an image that you were directly involved in creating as the photographer, model, makeup artist, stylist, Photoshop wizard, or other creative-team member. 

If the copyright holder requests that an entry be withdrawn from competition then the image and any votes it received will be disqualified.

3. No unnecessary discussion, debates, or critiques. Let’s keep talk to a minimum, filling these pages with images and not dialog.

4. Do not re-enter any image that has appeared in the Picture of the Day during the past 15 days or the image will be disqualified.

5. When voting please use the word VOTE, so you don’t confuse your vote with just a comment such as "This is cool" or "I really like this one".

A given individual may enter only ONE IMAGE per day and may VOTE only once per day.  Images may be of any subject – people, dogs, cats, butterflies, bridges... most any photography not prohibited by Model Mayhem's mature image guidelines is acceptable.

IF you enter an image then you are expected (but not required) to vote. DO NOT VOTE FOR YOUR OWN IMAGE.

The day’s voting ends at or shortly after Midnight, 12:00 AM Eastern Time. The precise end of voting is marked by the BIG RED End/Beginning of Day banner.  No votes for the day are counted after the banner is dropped.

6. Individuals that participated in the creation of an entry may not vote for that image. These individuals include photographers, models, makeup artists, stylists, and Photoshop wizards.  Such votes will be disqualified.

7. NO VOTE STACKING!!! In all fairness to contestants and others, please don't impose upon others to vote for your entry.  If the Picture of the Day staff senses abuse then we will investigate, potentially disqualifying suspect votes and even your entry.

8. An image that has previously won First-place in any Picture of the Day contest cannot be entered or re-entered in this competition.  Such images are automatically disqualified.

9. If your image has been posted for more than a few minutes then DON'T change it.

10. Please post your image only once on the day that you enter it.  Contestants are not permitted to BUMP images.  Such images will be disqualified.

11. The Picture of the Day staff reserve the right to disqualify entries at their discretion.

12. The Picture of the Day staff may temporarily suspend or permanently ban from the contest any individual who flagrantly violates contest rules or is disruptive.  Such individuals may not enter their work, have others enter their work, or vote in the contest.  This may be done without prior notice.

13. Current Picture of the Day rules are posted here.  By entering an image in the competition you agree to participate by the rules as posted at the start of that day.  Rules may be modified, added, or dropped without notice.

14. Let's keep it clean and fun!
