Hello friends in Futaba Aoi,

Forest's third annual Photo Contest is beginning and as has been the case in past years, submissions are open to anyone from our embassy regions. We'd love to see some submissions from y'all! :)

Forest Photo Contest 2017


Yes, it's that time of year (and a little bit more)! Whether you're still eating leftover turkey or just looking forward to being done with 2017 already, the third annual Forest Photo Contest is back to spice up the last month of the year!

Here's what you need to know:

🌲 This year we have more categories than ever before! Our four categories will be:

  • Trees (this category is permanent each year)

  • Weather

  • Sunrise / Sunset

  • Flowers in the Concrete - Nature in Unexpected Places

🌲 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.

🌲 The photos must be taken by you.

🌲 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 26th at 23:59 GMT (7pm 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 2018!

🌲 Due to the larger numbers this year and the restraints of forum polls, 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 and in our regional newspaper, the Forest News Leaf. 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!

A note on the forums: Forest's longtime forum host, InvisionFree, is currently closing and transferring all their forums to Tapatalk. Forest's forum was unfortunately transferred early and so we'll be operating on this platform until we can resolve the problem and hopefully move to Zetaboards or a similar, more familiar and customisable software. Apologies to everyone for any features which may be inaccessible while we're temporarily on Tapatalk.

Happy photographing!
