Contest Rules

Get the DriftGET THE DRIFT

Drift: Wind-driven snow.

Today's weather forecast calls for snow, sleet, and drifting (wind-driven snow). The forecast looks the same for all of next week. In the U.S., it looks like the entire nation has some type of entrenched winter weather this week as it has endured for generally all of last week. Get the drift of where this is going? That's right! Make it a contest!

Here's the RULES:

Rule 1: All rules will be strictly adhered to and enforced. No additional notice given.

Rule 2: NO PREVIOUS WINNNG PHOTO WILL BE ALLOWED.

Rule 3: Photographs only.

Rule 4: Photographs must be of wind-driven drifted snow. Some juxtaposition with other objects is permitted if it helps to convey the size of your drift, although that isn't a requirement. (Not just snow fall, not plow piles. I'm looking for snow piled up by the wind.)

Rule 5: Entrant must be the original copyright holder of the work; i.e., it must be your own work, by your own hand.
No public domain allowed.

Rule 6: NO digital enhancement, alteration or modification. Cropping is allowed.

Rule 7: You are on your honor and pledge that you will hold to all the above conditions.

Starting now (Monday, February 15), you will have 11 days to collect your pictures. Contest submissions will end on Friday, February 26, 2021.

However, I understand in this global environment, some people are experiencing summer weather.

Therefore, photos from any time period (current or historic) is allowed, but not things like newspaper historic, unless you are the reporter who took the picture.

Put on your best snowsuit and your warmest mukluks (don't forget your wooly hat and cozy mittens), and get out there and
GET THE DRIFT!

Have fun, be safe (it's cold out there), and good luck.
