    From now and going forward we are introducing a new way of doing the IOTM competition.

    What's new?
    It is now automatically managed by the forum software. It opens an album for the current month's competition and creates a discussion thread in the IOTM Forum.

    What's not new?
    All entry images must be taken in the month entered for and must have exif information intact to verify this.
    Images that are unable to be date verified will be removed from the vote.

    If you have any questions post here

    Here is a run through of how to post an entry in the IOTM album for the current month

    Information regarding the current months competition is posted in the IOTM forum and contains a link to the album to post your entry (one image)

    IMPORTANT

    Please be aware that the IOTM competition is now run by the forum software.

    On the 16th of the month it will post the entry thread

    15 days later it will close the entry album (OK for Feb and 30 day months but bang on the nail for 31day months)

    After the entry period there is 8 days to cast votes.

    The forum will automatically post threads in the IOTM Forum at each stage keeping folks informed.

    Miss a deadline and tough nothing anyone can do :)

    Im really confused - is it too late to put a february entry in?? You said 16 days after the 15th of the month so should be ok yes? But when I click on IOTM link at tab at top of page there is only one image in there. But also if it is too late I cant see a voting thingy either :(

    Desperate of Bournemouth

    Not sure on the etiquette of the competition. Are you allowed to vote for your own entry?
