MARS First Annual Photo Contest - Rules, Details, Prizes

Postby SPSKeeper on Wed Feb 04, 2015 5:13 pm

Hey everyone! We are going to be doing a photo contest and see the beauty of everyone's tanks!!! Best part is there will be prizes to the winners!


Prizes
UPDATE: This list will hopefully get larger if we have more participants!!

$25 gift certificate to DFS
$25 gift certificate to Beefs Reef
200 gallon box of salt(your choice of Reef Crystals, Kent or Coral Life) from Best Fish
ESHOPPS Frag Cave that holds 12 frags from Chris at Animart

3 polyped cherry red(was a beautiful orange/rainbow color) Acan frag from Chris at Animart



First place will get to choose which one they would like, and if more vendors step in it will continue down the line.

Rules

That's actually the best part! The only rule is that it has to be your photograph of your tank. You are free to take a picture of anything you please. Got hair algae? Take an insane macro shot of it!! Anything and everything reef related goes! The biggest point in doing this is to have some fun, and get more people involved in our community.

We will be opening new submissions for two weeks starting 02/05/15 and ending 02/18/15.

Then allowing more time for the voting to begin. Starting 02/19/15 and ending on 03/05/15.

One entry per person please. And the same goes for voting. If this goes well I would love to do it again.

Thank you everyone for your time, happy reefing and have fun!!!!

Hey starboard, I'm actually hoping this doesn't get too personal or anything. Everyone is welcome to post whatever photo they choose and the community will get to vote anonymously on which one they liked best. The main point in doing this is to just have some fun :) I hope you can join in to!


******* Update

I've contacted quite a few online venders such as marine depot, bulk reef supply and some others. I'm going to continue for a little while and see what happens so hopefully we can get more people involved and go from there.


Good luck everyone!

I've gotta go with this - this was definitely the coolest thing that happened in my tank in the past couple years. How often does a coral devour a live hermit crab...:

UPDATE: I've created a sub-forum for this photo contest. To make your entry, please upload your picture as a new thread in this forum! The subject can be something like "BraenDead's photo entry" (but use your own name, of course). Please only one entry per person - I'll lock down the forum at the end of the contest and create a voting post for everyone to vote. Best of luck to everyone!

The Acan lost a lot of its vivid coloration after some time adjusting in my tank. It looks cherry red now. I don't want to faulsely advertise it. Sorry about that everyone, not sure why it lost those rainbow colors but different tank params and lighting will do that.

Matt - it seems that happens a lot with Acans - it all depends on the lighting it goes under. Whoever gets it will be thrilled, I'm sure :)
