We encourage all members to enter the monthly Photo Competition, its fun, a great way to show off your troops & your photographic skills. Please don't think you have to be "David Bailey" to enter though! . No Prizes for winners, Its just a bit of fun.
1) All Action Man & his foreign relatives are open to the competition including 40th & equivalents from around the world. This does not include Modern Action Man or his foreign cousins. Vintage style is the key here.
2) Shots that have been enhanced with Photoshop etc. are not completely frowned upon but we do encourage members to get out & look for natural scaled surroundings!
3) Once a shot has been entered it cannot be re-entered in a future competition. This to a certain point includes similar shots from a singular shoot. (We like to see new & fresh shots please).
NB: photos used elsewhere or the old forum can be used.
4) By entering, you agree that your image may be used in the VAME calendar or for any other publicity purposes by the VAME Admin team without payment of royalties to you, whether the image is included in material offered for sale or not.
You have to post direct to the host website and use the hot link for forum code. IE, google Postimage and open the page, it will ask you to load photos. when uploaded it gives a choice for thumbs, direct link, web link, forum link, copy the code and paste into you post. when you post it will show the photo full size. if you want to view the pics before posting, use the full editor reply not the quick reply, once the code is pasted click the bbcode box a the the bottom left and then back to preview and pics will show.
Do not mix the codes or it will go wrong, best to add the pic codes first, when loaded and you can see them move them if needed then add you text and smileys/icons in the correct place. If using Photobucket or similar use the img code
