The Last Day....

The Last Day!/Important Contest News

Today is the very last day to enter the BIRDS AS ART 1st International Bird Photography Competition. You have till 11:59 pm tonight–Monday April 23, 2012–to register for the contest. Over the weekend 27 more folks decided to see how their images stacked up against some of the best in the world and take a stab at some of the great prizes in the $22,000+ prize pool. If you registered and paid over the weekend please be patient. You will receive your instructions via e-mail no later than this evening; Jim and Peter have been swamped. If you have trouble uploading your images because of high traffic on the server uploading one at a time will likely alleviate the problem. Good luck to all!

No More Days Left to Enter the Competition!

Qualifying B&H Purchases Made Today Still Get You In!

Only Seven Days Left to Upload Your Photos!

Although you may upload your images until 11:59pm eastern time on April 30, 2012, the very last day for registering for the contest and for making eligible B&H purchases will be today, Monday, April 23, 2012. This gives us time to process your registrations and verify your B&H purchases and gives you time to upload your images successfully. Good luck to all.

The BIRDS AS ART 1st International Bird Photography Competition has been going great guns. Additional folks are getting in on the fun each day. And many folks who had previously finished their entries have been taking advantage of the extension by uploading even stronger images. Thanks to those who responded to my Hand of Man pleas; it is now one of our strongest categories. While each of the following categories has some very strong images there is still room for improvement: Small in the Frame/Environmental, Pleasing Blurs, Youth, and especially Captive (photographs of captive, zoo, pet, or rehab birds).

Those of you who have been in the dark can learn more about the BIRDS AS ART 1st International Bird Photography Competition here or by visiting the main contest page here.
