Plants and Water Contest

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 11, 2013, 6:07 PM

Hi everyone!

A very Happy New Year to you all!

I hope the new year has been treating each and everyone of you well. So far for me, it's a bit half and half lol.
I missed you all bunches. School is starting back on the 21st January so my activity is gonna plummet again. So sorry about that.... but I this year I wanna start off with something new. Instead of a journal feature like I usually do, I'm going to do something a lil different. I'm going to host a competition.

The theme is 'Plants and Water'.

I chose this theme because, not everywhere in the world has snow and it'd be difficult to do a winter themed thingy.
The medium is photography ONLY.  

You can submit TWO entries only.

Entries must show  water on the plant/ part of the plant. Parts of plants are acceptable such as leaves, stems, flowers, fruits etc.

Here are some examples of what I am looking for:

Drops by sampok Morning Dew by John-Peter Sweet yellow by diensilver My house, neighbor's house, swing-set, sky, clouds by duggiehoo M2894 - Sweetness. by Lothringen Going down by MarcosRodriguez

I will NOT be accepting plants IN WATER such as Water lilys by NRichey

I will accept the photo if the water is frozen on the plant such as :thumb342362273: :thumb342793033:

After all, ice is frozen water :)

Photos you are submitting can be old or new :)

I'm setting the date from 31st January to 1st March, so that's one full month. Entries to the competition can be done by sending a link to me to your entries via a NOTE. There I will fave it and put it in a folder I'll make to the competition. However, I'm accepting entries from now, so if you wanna submit, feel free to :)

Judging will be done by judges pick and the top 10 photos will be posted in a poll which you all can VOTE for the top entry.

I :iconcelestialprincess101:, :iconsavagefrog: and :icongigi50: are the judges.

Judges are not allowed to enter.

Prizes so far are as follows:
