Fifth FlytrapCare Photo Contest begins Monday 6-6

by Matt » Thu Jun 02, 2011 9:29 pm

Hello FlytrapCare members,

The fifth FlytrapCare photo contest is about to begin! The carnivorous plant photo contest will open for on submissions Monday, June 6th. The rules are as follows:

Photo Contest Rules:
1. One carnivorous plant photo submission per user; your submission is final.
2. The photo must be no more than three months old and must be of a plant you own.
3. The photo can be of any species of carnivorous plant, but the plant species must be included with your post (although, i.e. "Sarracenia unknown hybrid" is acceptable). The make/model of camera that took the pic is not required, but should be included if known. Camera settings like exposure time, aperture setting and ISO setting would also be nice, but are not required.
4. The plant must have been in your possession for at least 3 months.
5. You must post your country of residence along with your submission.
6. Photo contest entrants must have a FlytrapCare "Joined" date of May 15, 2011 or earlier.

Submissions can be made by uploading the photo directly to this forum (once the contest starts) or uploading the photo to the community portion of the site (http://www.flytrapcare.com/carnivorous- ... oader.html) and posting a link to them here.

Please upload your photos to the June 2011 FlytrapCare Photo Contest Official Submission Thread

The contest is open for submissions for 14 days, closing the evening of June 19th. After the contest closes for submissions, a poll will be made from all of the submitted photos and every forum member will have three votes for the photos that they like the best. Voting will be open for 10 days, starting the morning of the 20th and ending the morning of June 30th. Each person will be allowed to vote for up to three photos.

Winners will be announced shortly after the contest closes.

Now, for the part you've all been waiting for....the prizes! Top three finishers will receive prizes.

Photo Contest Prizes:

For winners in the US:
1st - FTS Maroon Monster & B52
2nd - Heliamphora minor
3rd - Cephalotus follicularis

In addition, the Home Tissue Culture Group (via Carol Stiff), has generously made a donation as well.

The overall top finisher in the US will get their choice of one of the following:
* A Kitchen Culture Kit DVD
* Frank Tromble Carnivorous Plant TC DVD
* 10ml of PPM (Plant Preservative Mixture)

And a set of 50 Unicorn vessels! If the winner doesn't do tissue culture, I'm sure that they can find someone here to sell or trade them to (I would be interested :))

Thanks a lot for the generous donation Carol!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
For winners in the EU, the prizes will be very generously provided by Carl (mlvc2002) of Shropshire Carnivores and are:
1st - Red Sawtooth/Bohemian Garnet & Funnel Trap/Trichterfalle Venus fly traps
2nd - Red Dragon Venus fly trap
3rd - Sarracenia flava

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
For winners in Canada, the prizes will be very generously provided by Jun (hackerberry) and are:
1st - Cephalotus follicularis
2nd - Nepenthres Singapore "Garden Tek"
3rd - Clump of Venus fly traps

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
For winners in Australia, the prizes will be very generously provided by John (snapperhead51) and are:
1st - Cephalotus follicularis - Flowering size
2nd - Heliamphora minor x heterodoxa - Flowering size
3rd - Sarracenia minor - 250mm long pitchers flower size

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
For winners in other countries, the prizes will be:
1st - Three packets of Dionaea seeds from the FlytrapStore
2nd - Two packets of Dionaea seeds from the FlytrapStore
3rd - One packet of Dionaea seeds from the FlytrapStore

All plant prizes will ship bare root (not potted and without soil).

Additionally, the top three places will receive a FlytrapStore T-shirt!

To be clear, there are NOT three winners in the US, and three in the EU, and three in Canada and three in other countries. There are three winners total, and if you're one of the three, you can figure out what prize you'll get based on where you live and the prize lists above.

I want to say that I'm very thankful to John, Jun, Carol and Carl for being willing to donate some seriously awesome prizes to the contest.

If anyone has questions, feel free to ask them in this thread. I very much look forward to seeing some awesome photos of carnivorous plants!

To the right of where you post below your avatar(profile pic) it says Quote, then posts: 24 (you have posted 24 posts so far)
and then joined: Mon May 23, 2011 11:29pm(you joined on that date)

There's no way to proof the plant is yours, you have to be honest with the community.
Anyway if someone gets a pic out of another user member or in another community, i bet he/she will try to tell the administrators.

Yes, we're finally building enough stock of some great plants to be able to offer some nice prizes to people here in the US. Hopefully it will draw in more people that are avid CPers to participate in the forum here. I can't imagine why anyone would miss a shot at a B52/Maroon Monster, Heliamphora minor and a Cephalotus :)

Sure. I have verified that you were a customer there and we will allow people that have registered either place before May 15th to participate. I still hope to merge the FTS and FTC user base some day, so that would eliminate that confusion.

I usually leave all submissions even if they're not eligible for the voting. I just won't include the submission in the poll that people can vote on the best photos.
