What is 'Pic of the Day' 18+?
Pic of the Day 18+ is the 'mature' extension of one of the most popular forums threads in the history of Model Mayhem. The regular POTD contest was started back in July '06 by Craig Seay and has pretty much remained on the front forum page ever since, as has its 18+ counterpart. It has amassed tens of thousands of posts and gone through a number of different hosts.
Why change it?
The members and hosts alike have been asking for their own system for a long time. While the forums have been wildly successful, it doesn't make for the most optimal setup.
How do I play?
Simple. Just go to the submit page and upload your most winningest photo. It will then be put in a queue for the contest 2 days afterwards. (For example, submissions received June 1 would go towards the June 3 contest.)
If you POST a photo, please vote as well. Activity is really what makes this work. Of course you can vote even if you don't post.
Is it open to anyone?
YES! But due to popular demand, the contest is now split by gender. You may submit photos to only one contest, either Women's or Men's.
If your photo features both genders, you may submit it to one contest of your choice. Photos submitted to both the Women's and Men's contests
will be disqualified from both.
What do I win?
The most uberest of bragging rights?
Are there any rules?
Yes, a few. Please abide by them. It makes the world a better place.
- Mature images are allowed, but please follow Model Mayhem's mature (18+) image policy, found here. Due to the mature content, only MM members are allowed to view, post or vote on this contest.
- You may enter only 1 image per day, even if you have multiple accounts.
- You may only enter an image that you were directly involved in creating.
- You may submit photos to only one contest, either Women's or Men's. If your photo features both genders, you may submit it to one contest of your choice. Photos submitted to both the Women's and Men's contests will be disqualified from both.
- Entries must be in the form of single images. Multiple images, even those combined to form a thematic series, are prohibited.
- You may not resubmit a given image to the POTD 18+ contests for at least 15 days. Images containing both genders can be submitted to only one gender contest within a 15-day span.
- First-place winning images (including winners from Picture of the Day - Original Edition and either gender POTD 18+ contest) may not be resubmitted.
- No vote stacking by soliciting votes for an entry through announcements, tags, the forums, or other means.
- No multi-account voting. You may only vote once even if you have multiple accounts.
- Each day the Picture of the Day contest officially ends at Midnight Pacific Time.
- The Picture of the Day moderators reserve the right to disqualify images at their discretion.
Too slow?! There is a cap?
Yes, there is a 100 entries limit cap. Anything over that and the vote page becomes too unwieldy and we don't get an accurate representation of votes. You can get in by making sure you have your photo ready for upload at the deadline (12am PST).
I've got more questions. Where do I go?
There is a POTD 18+ Discussion Thread in the forums. Please feel free to read through that and post a question there if necessary.
