The outdoor photo entries are in — more than 200 of them — and now the fun begins. It's time for the Trailspace community to vote and determine the winners of our first-ever photo contest. Here's how voting works:
Each photo submitted has its own thread under the appropriate category:
Go to any thread. Look at the picture in the first post. Under the picture click on the number of stars you want to rate the photo next to "Your rating" (see right). Potential votes range from 0.5 stars (hate it) to 5 stars (love it), with half star options in between.
You also can click on the image and view a larger version of it in the member's photo album. There you also can cast your vote. Just click on the stars next to "Your rating" to the bottom right of the picture.
You get only one vote per picture, regardless of where it's cast. If you change your mind on your vote, you can update your vote anytime before voting closes on Wednesday, April 14. Just reclick on the stars.
Votes are not public. You are the only one who can see your own ratings. After contest results are tallied, the average ratings of images will be made public.
You can vote all at once, or over the two week period.
You can rate every photo submitted in the contest or just a couple. However, the more votes cast, the better.
Starting April 15, we'll tally the results, notify the winners, and announce the results here.
Thanks to everyone who entered for sharing their outdoor photographic adventures with all of us.
