The MD Moments Photo Contest is a great way for Leser Slave River locals to showcase their photography skills while competing for one of the 13 top positions. To make the most of the contest and increase your chances of winning, take a moment to review the following answers to some common questions about submitting, voting, and the selection process.
Selecting and Submitting Photos
Do you have any recommendations on subject matter?
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. From a perfectly-timed Flatbush sunrise to a hero shot of your mud-caked quad, any photo that captures the people, places and things of Lesser Slave River is fair game.
How many photos can I enter?
How big do my photos need to be?
Is there a maximum file size for photo uploads?
I'm having difficulty uploading my photos. What do I do?
Voting for Photos
Why can't I vote for any photos until November 6?
Entrants have until November 5 to submit their photos. On November 6, all photos will be available for viewing and voting. Posting them all at the same time prevents early submissions from garnering more votes than late entries.
How do I vote for photos?
How many times can I vote?
I can't seem to vote from my place of work. What gives?
Winner Selection and Verification
How do winning photos get selected?
The first determinant of a winning photo is how many votes it receives between November 6 and November 15. The top 13 highest-voted photos will be examined to ensure they meet the minimum photo eligibility requirements. Any photo that fails to meet image quality thresholds will be discarded. If this happens, the next most popular photo in line will be considered. This process continues until there are 13 verified winners.
What are the main reasons a top-voted photo gets disqualified?
Is there any wiggle room for photos that almost make the cut?
But my photo was the most popular. No fair!
Use and Ownership of Photos
What does the MD plan to do with the winning photos?
Generally speaking, we plan to use the photos to showcase the beauty and diversity of our boreal region. The winning photos will be featured in a wall calendar that the MD will produce in late 2023. The calendar will be available for the public to pick up at different locations across the MD (while supplies last).
