A reminder about our competitions.
Rule 3 states
Competition access is linked to forum participation. If you enter competitions on Ausphotography but do not actively participate in the forums on the site on a regular basis, your entry may be disqualified, at the discretion of the administrators and moderators.
The site is provided free, and the only thing we ask is that if you want full access, is that you are active on the forums, both posting your own stuff and helping others with critique, advice, comments.
Recently we sent messages to several members prompting them to join in more on the forums or risk having their competition entries disqualified. Many took that advice on board. However, I wanted to post this thread as a reminder. This afternoon we sadly disqualified one of the finalist entries in a current competition under voting, as they had not posted to the site since mid January. They were sent the PM several weeks back now, asking them to be more active on the forums.
We are not asking people to post every day, or even every week, but for all that the site offers, for free, we do ask that regular forum participation is required if you want to try and win a prize in one of our competitions. We reward active members!
