Third FlytrapCare Photo Contest begins Monday 10-4

by Matt » Sun Oct 03, 2010 3:58 am

Hello FlytrapCare members,

After much anticipation and many inquiries, the thirdFlytrapCare photo contest is finally about to begin! The CP photo contest will open for on submissions Monday, October 4th. 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 the owner's 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 September 15, 2010 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 October FlytrapCare Photo Contest Official Submission Thread

The contest is open for submissions for 14 days, closing the evening of October 18th. 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 18th and ending the morning of the 28th. There will be a small change in the voting scheme this time. Instead of one person getting one vote, 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 - Dionaea 'Red Piranha' and Dionaea 'B52'
2nd - Dionaea "Czech Giant"
3rd - Dionaea 'Cupped Trap'

In addition, Carol Stiff, founder of Home Tissue Culture Group has generously donated a Kitchen Culture Kit to the overall top finisher in the US! Wow! This is a great kit for anyone wanting to start learning tissue culture. 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 - Sarracenia flava var. rugelii, Giant Sumatra & Sarracenia Alata (both Medium)
2nd - Dionaea "Spider" & 'Royal Red'
3rd - Dionaea Heteradoxa

User moof (Peter) has also graciously donated a set of D.adelae, U.longifolia and U.calycifida for a terrarium for the top finisher in Europe regardless of overall place (even if no one in Europe makes the top 3)!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
For winners in Canada, the prizes will be very generously provided by Jun (hackerberry) and are:
1st - Cephalotus follicularis
2nd - Nepenthes Tobaica
3rd - Pot o' flytraps
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
For winners in Australia, the prizes will be very generously provided by John (snapperhead51) and are:
1st - N.ventricosa x trusmadiensis 150 mm tall
2nd - Heliamphora tequila 170 to 180 mm tall
3rd - Sarracenia hybrid 150 mm tall donated by the ACPS Adelaide
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
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!

I suppose it should be made clear that 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 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!

Looks like we've got to get Matt to set his alarm a bit earlier on the 1st day of a new contest so he can create the submissions thread ...

Wakey, wakey Mr. left coast :lol: :lol: :mrgreen: :lol: :lol:

This will likely be the last one for the year. We might run one during the dead of winter, maybe around Christmas time and make it Christmas themed. The problem is that almost everyone's plants will be dormant in a month or so and won't be all that pretty to look at. Don't forget that there's always next year :)

To upload attachments, click on the "Post Reply" button and then under the text area where you type your reply, look for the "Upload Attachment" tab. For a step-by-step tutorial with photos, see the Forum Guide written by Andrew here:
a-guide-to-the-forum-t5964.html#p57972
Look for "Thirdly, when posting on the forum, you may want to add some pictures."

Rules can be found in the first post of this thread here:
third-flytrapcare-photo-contest-begins-monday-10-4-t7811.html#p72449

See rule #3. Photos can be of any carnivorous plant, but species name must be included.
