Ride of the month - 2013 - Format Change

Hi guys,
Happy New Year! 2013 is here and we’re going to make a significant change to the way that the Ride of the Month contest is run for January forward. After considerable discussion with HITMONEY on the topic we’ve opted for an entirely new format of how the contest is run.

We’re looking for the best member’s pictures for that month. The winning picture will have the place of honor on the JKOwners Facebook page. We’ve eliminated the multiple classes. There is only one. We don’t care what’s on the Jeep (or how much $ they’ve spent or sweat they’ve put into it).
The criteria will be simple. Each month we’ll have a theme unannounced until entry time. Entrants will post up their submitted picture for ROTM. We anticipate quite a few submissions each month. We’ll run an initial vote to narrow the field a bit kind of like a semifinals. Highest vote counts continue on to the finals. Finals would consist of 5-10 entrants max on a vote and we’ll see which one wins (10 is option limit on poll so if the contestant numbers are still high we'll go with 10).

Suggestions for themes would be things like: Desert, Snow, Mud, Rocks, Mountains, Water, 2 wheel, 3 wheel. The options are endless.

It would be helpful to the entrant by having a little caption of where the shot was taken. Another thing to consider would be to make it a higher quality picture (cell phone pics suck).

What are you voting on? The overall picture and how well it relates to the theme of the month, picture quality, uniqueness of the shot, how well the jeep is framed in the foreground or beauty of the background. Which of the pictures posted by the entrants just 'makes it for you' as the symbol of our group on the Facebook home page. There are a lot of factors but we wanted to allow you guys to determine the best picture of the month.

I really don't want to make a huge list of rules that sort this out, but as they are generated, I'll update this post with whatever rules need to be imposed.
Rules:
1. Picture must be of the entrant's jeep.
2. Picture must comply with the theme of the month. Those that don't comply will be disqualified.
3. Winners in the calendar year are disqualified from entering again in the same calendar year. We'd like to spread the wins out, which I'm sure you'll understand.
4. One submission post of one picture only per month please.

I hope you guys have a lot of fun with this new format.
Cheers.

Thanks Apt..

This was done to make the contest more enjoyable, accessible, and easier for all involved.

There are some great Jeep shots that I have seen in which the rig is stock or near stock.. This contest will open up the opportunities for those kind of shots to be shared.

Eeeh....that really did suck. Then again, considering his tone throughout the entire ordeal it was pretty clear he was full of shit. Still hoping to see a solid JC turnout for the May run, y'all are cool in my book despite your horrible state of origin

Shit, it's hard enough around here to find a picture that wasn't taken outside the local Sam's Club.

Jersey gets a bad rap, how many places where you can wheel free of charge from dam near all the way across the state? And have an ocean to play in? I can leave my place and dam near hit LBI with only a few miles of black top. It's not the state that sucks it's the politicians that suck.

I'll buy that. Outside of the Situations of the world, everyone I've met from Jersey is pretty cool.

Mark your calendar, 5/15 - 5/19 my club (Baystate Jeepers) will be there camping on site. Talked with Timberwolf about it, expecting to see a good JC turnout. We camp in epic proportions. I'll be leading reds and blacks, we'll also have a leader for blues and greens.

Not sure how to feel about this. Part of me likes it, and part of me dislikes it.

But it should certainly change things up.

Question. Previously, there were 3 prizes (1 for each class). Is it just the winner that gets a prize? Or are there prizes for 2nd/3rd place?

Re: Ride of the month - 2013 - Format Change

One prize. If you come in second though, I'll draw you a picture of a second place trophy. Just you.

Sounds like this is a done deal. I like it, however I think this would have made a great secondary contest to go along with the ride of the month. It's going to be hard to win this if you don't have a DSLR and photoshop or an amazing eye for photography. I am a little concerned with location themes as well. I don't have desert, snow, mountains, or water here unless I drive for a few hours. That being said, I'll do my best and enter when I can.

Now that I've lived with it for a while.... I like when they can post more than one pic. Make the number something more like 5. Anyone else feel that way??
