RULES for photos contests

The basic rules of the contest are as follows; for complete legaleze small print, please see below.
  • One photo per post is eligible; if you put more than one photo into a post, only the first photo will be eligible to win, and will receive all that post's "likes"; the mods reserve the right to delete additional photos in the post
  • Contest is open to all members with a US mailing address, who have not won the previous month's contest
  • Contest runs from 12 noon Pacific time, first business day of the month to 12 noon Pacific time, last business day of the month
  • Only photos posted in the official contest thread are eligible
  • A maximum of five photos per month, per person, are eligible for the contest; you may make 5 posts on the first day, or space them out throughout the month, it's up to you
  • All photos must be the property of the poster; you must have taken the photo; you must own the copyright
  • All photos must be travel photos and have some relevance to this contest topic
  • Photos cannot have won this contest previously, or have been entered in the previous month's contest
  • Winning photos are determined by eligibility plus the total number of "likes" received by the photo during the contest period; eligibility and "likes" totals will be audited for accuracy, and the administrators reserve the right to alter "likes" totals to avoid gaming the system; creation of duplicate accounts for the purposes of altering the contest outcome will result in permanent ineligibility from the contest, as well as from Fodor's Forums, in perpetuity
  • Comments on photos are permitted; however, the "like" should be awarded based on the quality of the photo itself, not on the story accompanying it; only the "likes" awarded to the original photo post will be counted -- "likes" made on subsequent replies or quoted posts will not be considered for the contest
  • Winners will receive a Fodor's book of their choice, as well as some Fodor's swag; prizes will be mailed within 4-6 weeks of the winner announcement for the previous month
  • Photos should be subjected to no additional post-processing or editing, except for cropping and resizing to fit the parameters of the site
  • Maximum photo file size is 5MB with dimensions not to exceed 1920 pixels in width and 1080 pixels in height
  • Recommended file types are JPEG, JPG, BMP, and PNG
