Lets get a few guys to be judges and let the mods help with the rules.


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...
