    See this thread to find out how this works: http://www.tonmo.com/community/index.php?threads/10311/#post-10310

    Note: a lot of changes have been made (listed at bottom of article) so you may want to review it again even if you have already.

    Topic: Camouflage (any type of ceph that's disguising itself or is hard to spot in the picture.)
    One submission per person. Submissions MUST BE MADE by March 20, 2009.

    Note: I'm bumping the date up a little due to me being late with this (sorry) and we'll just run the poll a little late if need be...

    All submissions should include:
    Picture Title:________________
    Camera Used:_______________
    Location:___________________ (I think there has been confusion here, it's not where you live, etc. It's what the tank is eg: Sam's cuttlefish tank, or the Portland aquarium octopus tank)
    TONMO.com Username:________________



    I would appreciate it if all submissions are e-mailed to tonmophotos"AT"gmail"DOT"com in order for me to keep everything organized, however, if you would prefer to post the picture, that's fine too.

    My ceph isn't the most inconspicuous. I can't help but feel that cuttles are much harder to spot than an octo. There's always next month...

    I think i just might wait it out. i like D's idea for the multiple submissions (2) for a month. If there's ever a lack of topics for a month could they become more subjective i.e. scary, ot content?

    I just noticed this thread. I think the photo contest is a great idea! I take care of the tanks, and my wife is the photographer. It gives both of us a chance to show off our hobby. I will have her submit a couple of pics tonight when she gets home from work...or tomorrow. I look forward to participating each month, at least when we have an appropirate subject.
