This contest is designed so as to bring Animebase and Real life together. To achieve this feat, the contestants must enter each month with photos, taken by them, which will have to relate to a given generic theme and also have some "AB Proof"; something visible in the photo, made by the user, that makes it clear the photo is related to AB. Although now, the photography taken by the contestants which goes to the next stage of voting does not need to contain AB proof but rather extra photographs taken by the participants as to prove authenticity of the ''main'' photography. The overall themes given are broad but you can choose to show how far AB goes in the globe, where you log on AB or simply find a normal, every day scene of your life, and introduce AB somewhere. Photography is all about capturing the moment and showcasing what it represents by using a simple still image. It needs to be appealing visually yes but that doesn't mean high end technology or highly digitally edited photographs, so you don't need to go all out into semi or professional photography level pictures.
You can enter with one photo which will proceed to the voting stage however you have to take another two or three with AB proof on them (one supporting picture with AB proof is okay as well). The other photos should be similar to the main one, just taken from a different angle as well as with addition of the AB proof. However, there is also another option: Users will have the option to submit one picture with the AB proof on them, which will proceed to voting (note that this image doesn't have to be supported with other pictures).
Photos must have been taken by you.
The contest will be open for submissions for 3 weeks minimum.
You can use any device capable of taking photos such as Cellphones, Cameras, DSLR Cameras, etc.
Photos must have been uploaded into a 3rd party photo hosting site such as Imgur.
Photos need to abide by the global rules of AB (no cursing, no foul language, no adult content, etc).
You cannot submit photos of yourself and photos of people may only be used if you are taking a picture of a public scene.
All photos that are submitted in the submission thread and that follow the rules will be put to voting.
Voting will last for a week minimum.
Participants cannot vote for themselves with their main or an alt account. One submission for each member.
No suggestive pics either and no bikini and underwear pics. Keep it clean and according to the rules.

The submissions are to be submitted via PM to me (Horus) with the appropriate title. The pictures that you are submitting that will go to voting should not contain your name in it. The supporting pictures can contain them if you want. Therefore the submissions that are heading towards voting would be anonymous. But once the AB proof is in any of the images, whether the supporting pictures or the main picture, its fine!
Submission time ends 27th of March, 2019 23:59, GMT -5.
