Title: April/May BP Photo Competition ~~*Birds In Unusual Spots*~~
Post by: Nakia on April 05, 2015, 10:27:43 pm
Hi Folks, I would like to announce the BP Photo Competition for the months of April/May is starting today. A wee bit late again, but we are very flexible with our competition schedules.  :hehe2:  :bounce:

This month's subject/theme was chosen by Terri (Pinkbirdy), winner of last month's competition. She has chosen ~~*Birds In Unusual Spots*~~ for our subject/theme this month.

This subject should be easy to get a good photo to enter. Or just look through your files and pick one from when your bird was an inquisitive youngster or oldster new to your home & decided to explore it's surroundings. Lots of unusual places your bird could get into when he doesn't think you are watching.  :Oh: Also photos of your bird helping you shop on a day out & about could be an idea. Not a normal place to see pet parrots.  :dmblaf: Lots of ideas for photos this bi-monthly competition.  :thumb:

And remember you have 2 months to get your entry on here!! :handshappy: It is ok to enter a photo you have previously entered as long as you haven't already won a competition here  with that photo.
 

All photos need to be entered right here on this page. Only one photo entry per competition. Every member including staff is eligible to participate. The winner of this month's competition will choose the subject/theme for June's photo competition. And the winner will also get one of our 'Best Photo Award' Icons  added to their signature area. This Icon will remain on their signature and each new win will get another Icon added to their signature.  handshappy

The Competition will run from today April 5 til midnight (Central Standard Time in the US) on the 25th of May. On May 27th I will be adding the Poll with all the photo entries for everyone to vote on their favorite entry.

Photo Competition Rules:

1. No copy write photos - Please make sure you have permission to use the photo you submit.
2. No photos depicting birds in dangerous situations.
3. Only one entry per competition - If you need to remove or change your submitted photo, please contact one of the staff members with your reason to do so. It is at our digression to determine
    the need for changes.
4. Keep photos within the subject/theme topic.
5. All photos need to be entered here on this page.
6. And last but not least - Let's all have fun!!


Good luck everyone and let's see those ~~*Birds In Unusual Spots*~~ Photos!!  :bounce:  :woohoo: :luck:

 :laffhrd: Sorry can't help it Terri~~That is a "Most Unusual" Spot for a parrot.  :lol1:

Not so much in where as I know a lot of folks whose birds love to climb about inside of their clothes. More so in what you have told us about your Cockatoos and how brave Dave is to have one there so close to his face. Especially that one!! :Oh: :hehe:

it is a great choice for our photo competition!  :thumb: :grin:

OK, here is my entry for this photo competition.

It's not really an unusual place to find a bird in. Since my birds don't generally get into unusual places or I don't have a camera out at the right time when they do
~~{Dakota  galah111 :devilwink:}~~, this is as good as it gets with my flock.  :lol1:

This is Roscoe back in 2012, he was thoroughly enjoying a spray shower & was hanging from his top wire by 1 claw.  :dmblaf:

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been over here to take care of this bi-monthly competition yet. Having major internet issues at home.

Going to ask Wendy if she wil find a spare moment in her already swamped schedule to get the poll set up and photos posted .  :worship:  :hugu: :sad8:

Right now I only have my cell phone. And out where I live it just picks up 3G sporadically!! :hair: Will explain the reasons for internet woes in the off topic section.

Good luck every one~~Love y'all!!!  :loveuk: :hugu: :heart:
