    COTM submission rules

    Here's a starter list of rules I thought I'd sticky. There will be more added to this as the contest moves along. I will take submissions roughly the first 2 weeks of the month and then the members will vote on a winner the second 2 weeks.

    COTM submission rules

    1. Must be a GM powered vehicle.

    2. Picture must be no larger than 800x600 for the contest submissions thread. We will need a high resolution image for the calendar though. So please don't submit a picture if you don't have a high resolution image.

    3. Only 1 picture per member may enter each month.

    4. Only 1 car allowed in the picture.

    5. Cars only. No one posing with the car, or visible in the car, (unless it's a picture at the track).

    6. Only 1 vote from your IP will be allowed. If more than one vote is entered from your IP, you will be DQ'd from entering the contest for 2 years.

    7. Photoshop enhancements are allowed. Please keep the physical appearance of the car as is. Don't add parts that aren't there and things like that. The background is fair game.

    8. A car is only eligible to win once in a calendar year.

    9. The winner will be required to supply a full sized high resolution version of their COTM picture for the calendar upon winning. We will also need car/owner info to put in the calendar.

    10. You have to be a member of the site to enter (you can't enter a car for a non-member.) The car has to belong to you.

    11. You must have at least 10 posts to enter. No email entries... you have to have enough posts to have access to PM's.

    12. No campaigning on the site for votes. The whole reason behind using numbers for the cars and not names is to try and cut down on buddy system voting. Any post, PM, or visitor messages that get reported due to people campaigning for votes will result in that car being DQ'd from the contest for that month only.

    13. There will be a 5 day window to get your thread to me once you've been voted the winner. After those 5 days it goes to the second place car.

    Also keep in mind when you're taking your pictures, to take a few wide angle shots. We need some room around the car so that it'll fit the calendar template a little better. Here's an example of a picture we can use and one we can't.

    This one we can use:



    This one we can't, it will result in sections of the car being cut off while cropping to fit the template:
