Vote on July's Photo of the Month competition

Vote on July's Photo of the Month competition

Any camera will do, all you need is to scout for a good shot!

We've opened up voting to bit-tech forumites, so even if you haven't previously entered the POTM voting before you now can just by having a free forum account. This month has had more entries than ever, so we're keen to get as many people in on the voting action as possible to really give all our entrants a fair chance of winning.

If you've already entered this month's competition, then vote on the special POTM voting site where you are granted a weighted voting system of picking your top five.

Both sets of votes will then be added and the top three winners declared at the end of the month. The overall winner then gets to choose next month's theme.

Here at bit-HQ we're continually impressed with the standard of entries submitted every month which makes picking a winner that commits to the this month's theme of elegance that much harder.

So drop in here, check out the pictures and choose your favourite!

^^ Thank you Yoda. I can only imagine that must have taken some time, but it makes it so much easier when it comes time to vote. After looking through the images individually, I can take a step back and look at everything as a whole.

That kind of effort is greatly appreciated!

Thanks, I actually found it very useful when I just voted on the POTM site myself.



Bindi, I'm assuming those of us who have voted on the POTM site should not vote here also ?

Preferably, yes. I'm trusting people on that one :P I can't remember my password (again) so I just voted here :)

St. Pauls link works for me :S

Thanks for pics, Yoda :D

My entry is not included. :(

I don't see any entry by you DRB on the potm site. :?
Da_Rude_Baboon 27th July 2007, 10:12 Quote
I cant get logged into the external site dues to a user name password issue, i.e. i deleted the PM that contained it. I have been in contact with potm admin but i thought it might have been added to the forum pole.

Is that the one they get bindi to dance round for money? :)
Hiren 27th July 2007, 11:11 Quote
Unless the entry is on the external site it doesn't count as a official entry iirc. I'll clarify with Nath though.

I just grabbed everything from the POTM site :(

Hmmm that's a hard one to vote on, I think I'll have to go with Yoda's swan. Love what you did to the water, makes it look inky and the swan is swimming through without a blemish. Sorry if this sounds completely random, it's a bit late and I may have had a tipple on the old poison bottle.

Thanks for the thumbnail post BTW, made things a lot easier.

i was about to say the same thing

the POTM site really needs thumbnails put on -it would allow you to see what you think is interesting, then click them for full size comparisons of the ones you think are good :)

There really are some awesome entries this month guys, well impressed and thanks for the long look I had over them. I didn't manage to get one in this month but hell maybe next month ey :D

Good work to all who entered :D
teamtd11 30th July 2007, 12:38 Quote
When are the results :'( good luck to everyone that entered, and i cant wate for next month to see what i can do. and see what amazing pictures everyone else gets :D
Nath 30th July 2007, 17:19 Quote
Poll should be closing in about two hours, so I'll close the potm site voting at the same time. Results should be up tomorrow I guess!

Good luck everyone :D
Bindibadgi 30th July 2007, 17:25 Quote
Closed. We're investigating claims of unfair play so we might be discounting these results. Not sure yet, but there seems to have been a lot of votes for just one or two people in a very short amount of time.
kenco_uk 31st July 2007, 00:52 Quote
Aye, I thought that was weird, too. One in particular just shot up suddenly. There's a fair few without votes too..
Bindibadgi 31st July 2007, 09:01 Quote
After much discussion it looks like we're discounting the votes from the public and just going with the potm site. We'll sort something more reliable out for next month.
