AGPC Grey Of 2011
« on: August 08, 2011, 08:16:33 AM »

This is a photo competition to see which Grey will be the "Face of AGPC 2011".  It is a free competition, open to any member that has participated in forum activities and has a minimum of 50 posts as of midnight 7th August 2011.  So if you haven't been active within the forum and don't meet the required 50 posts today, then I'm sorry this competition is not for you but there will  be others available for new members soon.

1.  Submit your photos, the biggest and best quality to me by email to agpcface2011@gmail.com

2.  I will check that you are eligible to enter and put your photos on here for voting, they will remain anonymous

3.  You vote for the photo that you like best

4.  The winner will have their photo put onto a 12" x 16" (30.5cm x 40.6cm) canvas, similar to this





Once again I will say that the photos need to be the biggest and of the best quality your camera can do, then email them straight to me on the above email address.  Don't compress them with zip folders or go via Photobucket or anywhere else because that shrinks the photo and it will be no good.

There can only be one winner, so in the event of a tie I will take the photos down, rename them "A" and "B" and you can vote for either "A" or "B" without knowing which photo you are actually voting for.  The winner will then be revealed.

The deadline for this competition is October 10th so plenty of time to get those pin sharp, candid photos of your Grey sorted.  Voting will begin on October 11th. Good Luck.

Well, over 50 posts and at least known to us on the forum, not someone that joined a year ago and has 51 posts the last one waaaaaay back when!  So someone who posts regularly at least a couple of times a week.

How many pictures can you submit? Just asking because I can never decide which one I like best  :biggrin:
If I sent you a few, could you look at them and help me decide please?

There seems to be some confusion as to what is ok with photos.  I need the photo straight off your camera, don't send it to me via Photobucket, Flikr and any other photo account.  When you take your photos off your camera, email it direct to me from your "My Pictures" folder or wherever you save your photos on your computer anything else won't be good enough to work with.  The photos need to be huge and fine quality.  If I can find an example of a crappy one and put it up here, you'll see why... watch this space.

Yeah, it is Bob.  We are African Grey Parrot Centre, so we'll go with just Greys this time.  Maybe I could do something for other birds as well a bit later.

Awww it's a lovely photo but I can't use it Karen, it's far too small.  Have a look at the sizes that I need in my earlier posts. x
