Yahoo! India Wildlife Photo Challenge - Shoot them alive!

Yahoo India Editorial is a group administrator Yahoo India Editorial says:

Hello there, Flickr Shutterbugs!

Do you love to wander India's jungles, deserts, seashores and swamps with your camera on the ready, looking out for wildlife large and small? If you nodded yes, this is your opportunity to get your best photographs published in Yahoo! India's Travel Galleries section, which receives more than 30 million visits every month.

Do observe these simple rules:


1) We take the wild in wildlife very seriously. All photo submissions should be of animals and birds in the wild, natural environment. We will not accept photos of animals in zoo enclosures or amusement parks.

2) All photo submissions should be of Indian wildlife -- please be warned that hippos, polar bears and killer whales will not make the cut!

3) Try and include the animal's natural environment in your shots, as this communicates strongly the need to conserve wild habitats.

4) Do not disturb wildlife while taking your shots. Do not expose nests or nesting sites of birds, or burrows and dens of animals. Do not feed, harm, threaten or handle the animal, or intrude into its territory or space to photograph it.

5) Be observant for unusual behaviour that may result in an interesting photograph -- feeding, combat, nursing, courtship, etc.

6) Try not to limit your attention only to large or charismatic wildlife such as predators -- sometimes the joy of nature lies in the smaller creatures that most people rarely notice. We will give preference to unusual wildlife photos over more common ones.

7) Make sure your photos are set to be downloadable. This is very important. We cannot publish photos that do not obey this rule.

8) Avoid watermarking your photos. If you are concerned about copyright and misuse of your photos, you may add a small credit at the bottom right-hand corner of your photograph. In any case, we will link published photos to your Flickr photostream.

That's all! Now, it's over to you. Let's go wild!
