    The What:
    Post up to two current photos of your ride in this thread
    The Why:
    Because you could end up with your car on the banner for all of August, and maybe win a Tshirt in Decwmber, up against only 5 other competitors. Winner will also pick the logo that is used for the site that month, from about six rotating logos.
    The How:
    Just do it!
    The When: before August 24th. Voting for two.days afterward
    The Which:
    No photos of witches, sorcerers, warlocs or other dark magical beings accepted. You would be looking for Imp-heart Error magick forums, and got here mistakenly. Take a left at the enchanted chatbox that remembers no.deed.
    The Who:
    You!

    post max of two pics of your ride in this thread for consideration for the August competiton. Winners from each month will go up against each other in December for an Import-era tshirt of your choice.

    The technical stuff: Pics must be available in a high-resolution, at least 1500x1500, but larger preferred. Please, post only recent pics. Anyone qualifies. If you are posting a photographers work, you must obtain permission, were you to win. Please post a max of two pics per contest month. No problem if you want to edit an earlier post to replace a posted photo with a new one. Contest will close a week before the end of the month. This Month's contest will close on the 24th of July. Voting to take place for two days after.

    Themes may be introduced. This month, no theme required for pictures submitted

    So we just send the pictures into you? Then you make a banner with them?

    Is it possible for those members that are Photoshop nerds to make their own banners? Perhaps you can post a photoshop file that has a layer with the logo in place and then anyone can design the banner around that. For consistency, you can require the logo layer to not be altered but any image can be added behind.

    I would like to have the pictures posted, unadulterated here. Well, actually, if they are already photoshopped, then great, but I don't want to get banners fully made, in competition with raw car photos. Make sense mayne?

    for each month

    Haha. I will admit to thinking the same thing haha. I really like the shot though, and it could be cool, plus the car showcases something different.

    I think it evens the odds abit. If there's a angle format for each month like rear end, headlight/side view, engine bay, etc.

    Hunter, do you have that bottom pic in a RAW file, it looks nice but it could use some tweaking.

    Some great submissions here for the August banner! Also a few on the other thread, I'll bring them in to this one if I can figure out how to - that's my fault - I didn't post clear enough, on the other thread.

    Still a couple days left to get your pics in for this!!!! Please, if you haven't already - submit something!!
