    The Red, White, and Blue of Disney Photo Contest

    Contest Description: Enter your photo of patriotism at a Disney Park or Resort.

    Have a question? Feel free to ask.
    Don't have a photo to contribute? Wait until voting starts and vote for your favorite photo!

    Official Contest Rules
    The rules will be very similar as previous years.
    Contests will run from Saturday-Friday 11:59pm PACIFIC TIME, submissions after this time will not be included. An individual thread will be created for each contest. My intention is to open new contests and post polls on Saturday mornings. I hope to be able to stick to that, pending any unforeseen circumstances.

    1 submission per member, per contest. Once you post your picture, you cannot replace it. You cannot re-use the same entry in multiple contests even if used in a different year. Obviously I cannot remember every picture posted in a contest so try your best to remember if you have entered a picture.

    Pictures can be taken with any type of camera (film or digital).

    Pictures can not be altered in any way, except to adjust size or add your own personal watermark. This is a photography contest, not a photo-editing contest.

    Please resize pictures to be no larger than 1024x768 OR 768X1024

    Please do not attach the photo to your post. Upload it to your own personal site and link the photo. You are responsible to ensure the photo is viewable at all times (and not subject to bandwidth limitations).

    Pictures can be taken at any time for any contest (if you visited in April of 2002, you can use those pictures for any contest that interests you).

    Pictures must be taken by the member submitting the entry, and not by a family member or by a cast member (meaning you physically have to take the entry. CM’s are of course allowed to enter their own photos).

    If 10 or less people participated, 1 poll will be posted, and it will be open for 7 days.
    If more than 10 entries exist, the entries will be divided into similar-sized groups, and will be listed in the order that they were submitted.

    No breaking of park rules or common etiquette to take your pictures. (No accessing restricted areas, no flash photography on attractions which do not allow it....stuff like that)

    The overall subject of the contest is "Disney". Although some contests are specific to areas of Walt Disney World, anything "Disney related" can be taken for other contests, including, but not limited to, other Disney parks. For contests like the "Fantasyland photo contest", any Disney park's Fantasyland would be accepted. Some contests allow photos not taken on Disney property and this is noted in the topic description.

    Well this is a first. I guess we won't be doing this contest again next year.

    It may just be that last week was a big vacation week, and people were away, or otherwise occupied.

    By the way, I really enjoy your photo contests all the time, as I love looking at the wonderful pictures that people submit. I don't take photos, but I always admire the talent of others, who take such interesting pictures.

    Than you for providing this thread for all to enjoy each week. :)

    Thank you! It's fun to do this every week and I also enjoy looking at all of the photos.

    Every year around Thanksgiving I start looking into what topics we will have the following year. The first thing I look at is number of entries for each topic and that determines which topics won't return, at least in the new calendar. This is the first time I've ever seen a topic with no entries. I've seen one entry a couple times, but never zero.

    Just a note about the vacation thing...in the past I've had entries sent to me ahead of time because the poster would be out of town or otherwise unavailable during the week of the contest and I posted it for them when the contest started. That's still an option if anyone would like to do that.
