Group Rules

* Only photos which have won a Bronze medal are allowed to be entered into the group pool, and to win a medal or enter a competition, you have to be a member of the group.

* You must vote on all competitions at Voting stage, within 20 minutes of entering any competitions. If you enter competitions at various times, you are required to check and vote in any competition/s at Voting stage which you have not previously voted in. You do not have to vote in competitions you have entered, though you may if you wish, as long as you do not vote for your own photo.

If you do not vote within the 20 minute time frame after entering competitions, your entry will be removed from the competitions you have entered during that time.

Voting starts as 0-0-0-0 and you add one for the photo you prefer. eg. If you like the 2nd photo you would start the vote with 0-1-0-0 - if the next person liked the 3rd photo, they would then vote 0-1-1-0. If the 3rd person also liked the 2nd photo, they would vote 0-2-1-0.
If you enter a competition, you may vote if you wish, but you may not vote for your own photo.

* Only 4 photos in each competition. Once you enter your photo in a competition, please do not change it or you may find your entry has been removed in fairness to other members.

* Photos must be taken by you, and be family friendly (safe level - no porn, nudity, or otherwise offensive content)

* Only enter 1 photo per competition

* Do not enter the same photo in more than one competition at a time

* There is no limit on how many Bronze or Silver competitions you enter at the same time. You may only enter 1 Gold competition at a time, and if you win, you are excluded from entering the next Gold of the same number.

* Once a photo receives 5 votes in a Bronze, Silver, or Gold competition, they have won.
For Platinum, voting goes to 7 votes.

If voting stops on a competition for 2 days, in the interests of keeping things moving, the entry with the most votes will be declared the winner.

* All competitions are opened and closed by an admin or moderator

* Once a photo wins a Bronze medal, please post it to the pool. Once it has won a Bronze medal, you cannot enter it in another Bronze competition.

* Once a photo wins a Bronze medal, it is then possible to enter it into a Silver competition it fits the theme of.

Once it wins a Silver medal, it cannot be entered into another Silver competition but when awarded, can be posted to the Foto Competition Silver pool. Once a photo has both a Bronze and Silver medal, it can be entered into a Gold Medal Competition.

Once it wins a Gold medal, it can be posted to the Foto Competition Gold pool. Once a photo has both a Bronze, Silver, and Gold medal, it can be entered into a Platinum Medal Competition.

* When a photo wins a Platinum medal, it will be displayed on the group home page.
You may also enter it into the pool of the Foto Competition Platinum group.

Please follow the rules, ask a moderator or admin for help with anything you do not understand, and above all, have fun and good luck with winning many medals!!
