Congratulations to last months competition winners and a big thanks to everyone who took part. I'll be in touch with you soon to arrange the prizes.

1st place with 8 votes was @Angieb with a lovely shot of her dog Bailey.
2nd place with 6 votes was @Paul stuart with a cracking shot of a Short Eared Owl.
3rd place with 5 votes was @etiennescamera with a great catch of a Buffalo sparring contest.

For May there's no theme again simply because this seems to encourage the most entries for now.

Competition Dates
Entries start: The date that this post is published.
Entries end: May 20th at 3am Eastern Time (9am GMT)
Voting starts: May 20th at 3am Eastern Time (9am GMT)
Voting ends: May 27th 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.


There are no alternative prize options or cash options, so if you are unable to accept a B&H or Amazon voucher I'm afraid you will miss out on the prize.

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

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.
