First of all congratulations to last months competition winners.

1st place with 3 votes is @garuda
2nd place with 2 votes is @WeeMalky
3rd place with 1 vote is @Jeff A

Thank you very much to everyone who took part.

Since Mike was last months competition winner he also received the job of choosing this months theme, he has decided to go with sunrises and sunsets.

Competition Dates
Entries start: The date that this post is published.
Entries end: May 25th at 3am Eastern Time (9am GMT)


What Do I Get if I Win?
1st Place - The first place winner will receive a $50 (US Dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon (you can choose depending on your country and preference).
2nd Place - The second place winner will receive a $25 (US dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon.
3rd Place - The third place winner will receive a $20 (US dollar) voucher for B&H Photo OR Amazon.

If your local currency is something other than US dollars then the above amounts will be converted based on the exchange rate when the competition ends.


In the event of a draw the entry date will be extended but not past the last day of the month. If there are still equal votes for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place then the entry prizes will be split. I can't think of a better way of doing this for the time-being! If this happens I may also only be able to offer Amazon vouchers since $20 is the minimum for B&H.

The first place winner will also have the job of choosing the topic for the next competition. Don't worry, a list will be provided!
