The contest has three phases, starting with the photo submission phase that ends Nov. 3 at 11:59 p.m. PT. The second phase consists of the judging, where our judges will select five finalists according to the following criteria: originality (30 percent), complexity (30 percent), caption (20 percent), creativity (10 percent), and relation to the theme (10 percent). The judges will select three finalists per category kicking off the voting period wherein finalists will rally friends and family to compete for the most votes. Contestants whose photos get the most votes between Nov. 5 at 11 a.m. PT and Nov. 4 at 11:59 p.m. PT will be crowned winners!

You can submit a photo per category but you will only receive one prize. Speaking of categories, here is a breakdown on what are the guidelines for each:

Individuals: you have to be 18 or older to participate

Groups: two or more people need to be part of the group photo and the person that submits it needs to be 18 years or older. They will be representing the group in the contest and they will be receiving the prize so it can be divided among the team

Kids: in order to participate in this category, you have to be the parent of the kid or kids in the picture. The minor must be under 13 years old in order to participate

Pet: this category is open to pets of all ages and types but they must be wearing a costume. And the pet's owner must be the one submitting the picture

With all that out of the way I can get into how to enter the contest. Please read the rules, accept the terms and conditions and fill out the form above. And keep things PG when submitting because any images with nudity, hate speech or discrimination will be disqualified.
