WELCOME to Model Mayhem's PHOTOGRAPHER of the Week~ a competition based platform on which we promote the photographic imagery of all participating MM member photographers!!
At year's end all our weekly winners are entered in our Model Mayhem sponsored "MM PHOTOGRAPHER of the YEAR", a final year end competition for a chance at supreme recognition and awesome prizes!!
This competition works basically in the same way that our others do but please read "Thee Rules" section before submitting your entry.
1. You must submit 3 individual images (NO composites) of which you are the photographer. Images should be appropriately sized (we suggest no more than 700 pixels on either side). By entering this competition you are stating that you are the photographer/copyright owner of the images you are posting and that you assume any and all liability, including but not limited to the removal of any image a contest administrator feels does not comply with our objectives. No 18+ images or links are permitted. 2. You may enter this competition only once per contest, Tuesday through Saturday (Eastern-Pacific standard time zones), and you may enter each consecutive competition, no matter how many "wins" you have been awarded.
3. Voting will begin with the "vote banner" on Sunday morning, at or shortly after 12:00am EST, and will close on Tuesday morning, at or after 12:00am EST with the closing banner. No image submissions are accepted during the voting process so please hold your next entry until voting closes. 4. Any MM member may cast ONE vote per competition, but competitors may not vote for themselves, or solicite by any means, votes for themselves or for any competitor (vote stacking). If a contest administrator suspects vote stacking has occurred, either by the entrant, or by anyone who favors the entrant, the entry in question will be disqualified.
This is not a popularity contest so let's keep the playing field level and the competition clean. 5. Winners will be announced and posted, along with a new banner, each Tuesday. This banner may also be posted by the winner on the winner's profile page (if that option is available at the winner's level of membership)
6. * Rule change: Contest admins may enterand may now vote when they have an entry in play. 7. Once an image has been submitted, please do not resubmit the same image for at least 14 days (2 consecutive contests) following submission of that image.
* Rule amendment: No winning images may be reentered in to the same contest in which they have previously won.
8. NEW RULE: As of 3/31/13 a new BONUS Incentive is being offered to all contestants who vote in the contest they are entered in. A 2 vote bonus will be awarded as an incentive for contestants to vote! This will offset the vote you placed against your own submission and will compensate you an extra vote for your participation in helping us to grow each competition.
We encourage that you take this competition seriously but let's keep it fun...NO DRAMA please~!!
Any violation of the rules of this contest may result in the disqualification of an entry and repeated violations will result in a permanent ban of the offending member from this competition.
