Fifth Annual Forest Photo Contest 2019!


Forest Photo Contest 2019


December is just around the corner, and that means 2019 is coming to an end. Whether you're bracing yourself to eat massive amounts of leftover turkey in a few days or just waiting for 2019 to be over, it's time to look forward to the next year. But wait! The fifth annual Forest Photo Contest is here to spice up the last month of the year!

Here's what you need to know:

🌲 We have four categories once again this year:

  • LinkTrees (this category is permanent each year)

  • LinkAnimals (the first repeat category! We had this one in the first contest back in 2015)

  • LinkReflections (seeing in and through water / glass / mirages / symmetry - whatever meaning inspires you!)

  • LinkCultivation (agriculture, gardening and growth)

🌲 You may submit up to 12 photos total. You may choose how to divide those among the different categories, but please do not submit more than 12.

🌲 Please post your photos in the appropriate thread on our forums, located Linkhere. You may also submit photos in a telegram to Mount Seymour or Lord Dominator.

🌲 The photos must be taken by you, but can be taken at any time (not just during the contest).

🌲 Anyone in Forest or in a region which has an embassy with Forest may submit photographs for the Contest.

🌲 Timing:

  • Submissions will be open from November 24 at 00:00 GMT (7:00pm Nov 23 EST) to December 23rd at 23:59 GMT.

  • Voting will begin on December 24th at 23:59 GMT and end December 31st at 23:59 GMT, so that we will select the winners in the first minutes of 2020!

🌲 Voting will take place on a Google Form. Needless to say, please no puppeteering!

🌲 The photographers with the top three photographs in each category will have their photos acknowledged on our RMB, on our World Factbook Entry, and potentially in our next foreign update. A banner will also be created with a collage of the top photos to applaud the winners, and participants in the competition will be encouraged to add it as their nation's custom banner. Forest's flag will also be changed to the 1st place photos in each category for a week after the Contest.

Now it's time to head out and start photographing! Good luck to everyone!

Any questions about the Contest should be directed to Mount Seymour or Lord Dominator.
