Everything you need to know to take part in the Orms Photo Of The Month Challenge, take a look…


A new year, a new set of themes! As you know we decided to change things up a bit and make Photo Of The Month a bit more interesting, perhaps even challenging. So we started to introduce themes from last year, some have been easy, others push your creativity a bit. If you’ve never taken part in the Orms Photo Of The Month challenge, this is how it works…

Basically, #PhotoOfTheMonth is just for fun, there’s no prize attached – only bragging rights.  It’s also open to anyone who would like to enter and you can send in as many images as you like. Please remember this is actually a Facebook competition, we only load the top 5 images here on the blog and that’s when you get the option to vote. Haven’t seen the winning images from 2015 yet, you can find them here.

Ok so hit me with the latest theme!

NOW ACCEPTING: November 2016 “Pets”.

We are excited to announce the theme for November will be “Pets”! We really don’t need to explain much here, all you have to do is send us awesome pictures of your pets. I mean come on, we all have a bunch of those right. Don’t be afraid to get creative, wide and beautiful close-up shots are all welcome.

You can get snapping, we are accepting entries for the November “Pets” Photo Of The Month between October 21st and November 18th, 2016.

The next Photo of the Month draw will take place during the week of 21-25 November 2016.

How To Enter

If you’d like to enter but you are not 100% sure how it all works you can have a look here.  If you know what it’s all about, then you can go straight to emailing your photos through to michelle@orms.co.za with the subject: “Pets Facebook Photo Submissions”Please rename the files to include your own name!!

Alternatively, upload your photographs to the official Orms group on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/groups/orms. Please note that we do curate the images and only those that relate to the theme will be included in the competition. Your images should be high res jpeg files, or at least 1000 pix on the longest side.

Please note, due to the volume of images we receive each month we can not confirm receiving or reply on each submission.
