You could say only submit a picture of your trail cam pic with a piece of paper on the screen with your username on it. So if you have a pic you want to submit, pull up desired pic on the computer, place a sticky not or whatever with your user name on it and take a picture of the screen to submit...

that could be cheated too, you would need a note with your username in the actual trail cam pic, like write it on a sign in front of your camera.

Maybe just save the original files straight from the camera and if your pic is chosen as a winner then you email the original full sized image file to whoever is running the contest, so they can verify you didn't just steal it from the Internet.

How is the best pic chosen?

Is enhancing allowed?

Whatever you guys pick for rules is cool with me. Ill try to help think of random rules to throw out there for debate just to get some ideas going.

I'll volunteer to judge.. I'm worried I might jinx my luck with pics if I enter the contest

How about we use three judges. The three judges will rank each pic from 1-100 (through PM to avoid making people mad lol). They will combine the three scores to get the average. Using that average the top 10 (or however many y'all would like) will be chosen.

Just a suggestion though. Keep the ideas comin!

Another idea. The individual judges score will be an average of what he/she scores the pic in the following three categories
-Uniqueness of the animal(s) (antler size, body size, deformity, etc)
-Overall picture quality
-Pose of the animal(s)

So say someone entered this pic


I would give it a
87 in uniqueness (not too high of a score in this as the deer are both fairly casual)
96 in pic quality (I like the way the light shines through and no over abundance of blur)
97 in pose (up close and showing himself off pretty good.. The deer in the background also adds flavor to the pic.. Only reason not a 100 is the deer in the back)

I would average it a 93. Then send that to the other judges to average with what they gave it.

Enhancing should not be allowed. Judging should be done by everyone like a poll. Not sure if this forum has that option.

Why not let the judges decide the finalist's and tndeer members decide the winner? Just throwing ideas out.

So who is the judges??? I know on the other 31 forums I am a member of they do it as a poll so everyone can decide. They make you list the camera make and model and date taken. In my opinion if you have judges there can be biased problems come into play. Especially if prizes are awarded. I usually donate 5 of my camera units every year as prizes for stuff like this. I have also seen folks who start out as friends become "not friends" in these contests. I have seen it get ugly. That is why I say do it as a poll.

If you do 1 entry per person, no one will submit there's until season ends for the most part, I wouldn't anyway... I would say five/ person. Just so ppl don't get crazy and submit 5 everytime they check a camera...

I think mods can add polls here but not sure. Can you give us a link to another contest that is set up kinda how you like it so we can get some ideas from there? I definitely trust that you would know how to run a camera contest.. After all I've heard you can't beat firemanjim trail cams!


Whatever we do, we need to get the rules set up ASAP

The other forums do a pre season contest that starts July 1 till September 1. Than do one from September 2 till January 1. We can do anything you guys want to do. I am just telling you what other forums are doing. Most guys save up all their pics and the last few days of the contest they submit their best photo. 1 per person. Usually 3 classes. Best color photo, best ir photo, and best 30 second video.

Thanks for the info. I especially like the 3 classes idea.

How about we do pre-season from July 6-the day season starts. Then one from the day season opens till about the end of March. I got thousands of good buck pics last year from January to March.

I don't really think we would need much for rules other than the obvious-must be taken during the time of contest, must be your photo, etc.. and I agree with no enhancing.

We aren't gonna be able to make a poll so using judges will be the only way I can think of. I think it will work fine that way. The scoring of the photo will be kept between the judges so no one will get mad. Only picking the top five would also help prevent problems. Everyone who didn't make the top five can feel like their pic was #6 lol

I think more than three categories would be a little more fun. Otherwise the pics are all similar. How about adding a category for funniest pic (coyotes peeing on a salt lick for example, best non-deer pic-mountain lion walking by, ugliest deer pic, most deer in one pic, most unusual pic....

How about we do five categories with an IR and color version of both.
1.) "Monster Buck"-Not necessarily the biggest buck, could just be an awesome rack or a buck that is just plain BA
2.) "Pure Awesomeness"-Could be anything that is unordinarily cool like a hawk attacking a mouse
3.) "Dime a Dozen"-most deer in one pic
4.) "Picture Perfect"-Prettiest pictue (a fawn, deer by a waterfall, whatever)
5.) "wait....Wuhhht??"-craziest/funniest pic (i.e. two bucks doing the hibbittydibbitty or your wife sneaking around with another guy in the woods.. kidding about the second one lol keep it PG

I also like the pre-in season-post idea.

Just keep me updated Chief as to what you need me to do. I think with the cameras and equipment I have access to I would be at a unfair advantage competing in these contests. I am better used as a judge in my opinion. Glad I can help.

BSK would be a good judge. He may be too busy though.

Judges can just score from 1-100 on how well they feel the pic fits into its submitted category.

Next step is dates for the pre-season contest. I think the contest should start July 1. This gives everyone plenty of time to sign up. If thats good with y'all the official signup thread needs to be posted ASAP. We can post an entry thread with all of the rules later.

Gil could also be a real good judge, but it's up to him, he might already have his hands full.

Why do we need a judge? Post the pics then set up a poll and let us vote.

I talked to a moderator and they said it would be a hastle for them to add a poll. I can see why it would since we already have 27 registered.

Updated the rule. You may only enter two photos, one IR and one Color.

Thanks for that. One other clarification, can a color photo be entered into multiple categories (will each photo be judged based on each category) or only a single category of the entrant's choice?

When entering your photo you will use this format
Category-Color
Sub-category-Monster Buck
[pic]

The picture will only be judged on how well it fits into the chosen category.



Everyone-Please ask all questions!

No, you can enter a total of two pictures. One must be color and the other IR. You can enter your color picture into any of the five sub-categories, the same goes for IR.

Do the pictures have to be taken during the contest time frame, July 1 thru September 22, or just submitted during that time? In other words, can previously taken pictures be entered?

If you choose to do so, you must edit your origional post and change the pictures. Each member will have a total of two posts in the entry thread. Please follow this rule as judging the contest will be difficult if you do not.

No, all pictures must be taken within the contest time frame.





Catman, your picture is okay to stay in the thread for now, but please update it with another photo during the contest time frame.

Master chief - you can only edit your posts for about a day before the feature is disabled. Sorry I didn't know the contest wasn't started yet - maybe I need to read better \:D

I think you should re-size images to like 900 width max to avoid super huge images in the threads. Just make the poster submit the original image if it wins?

Unfortunately, no. The in-season contest is only for pictures taken during the TN hunting season.

Let him walk until you get a picture you can enter \:D
