    :xmastree::ornamentred: The MLPTP Christmas Photo Hunt :ornamentred::xmastree:

    :snowman:What is a Photo Hunt?:rudolph:

    A Photo Hunt is an event where the organizers post a range of photo challenges to be completed by the competitors. You then take a photo with whatever elements are required in the task and post the submission. (This photo must belong to you.) Your photos will earn points based on your ability to complete the task on time and with all the elements of the task included in the submission. Some tasks may have bonus points available for including specified things.

    There will also be Blizzard Rounds in which a new task will be available with only a very limited amount of time to accomplish the photo submission.

    Sneaky Points will be awarded for any submission that is deemed to have completed the heart of the task, but perhaps didn't exactly follow the letter of the law. For example: a task calls fr a photo of a pony and a tree. The submission is of a pony and a poster with a tree in it. This will count for Sneaky Points. Every task should include the real items asked for in the task assignment. Sneaky points are half-value of the points available for any given task.

    :ornamentgreen::ornamentred::ornamentgreen:Rules:ornamentgreen::ornamentred::ornamentgreen:

    Photo Editing - No photo editing of ANY kind! (You can crop and re-size) Altering the photo is NOT acceptable! No photoshopping whatsoever! This includes color adjustment, smudging, blurring, adding or subtracting from the photo. You may not CHANGE the photo in any way.


    Official Hasbro Ponies Only - Any generation is welcome, but only official Hasbro MLPs should be used in the entries. (Sorry fakies, we love you, but stay out of our contest!)
    Text - You may NOT add text to a photo or a submission thread! Only the photo is accepted. This includes adding captions for the photos. You are welcome to do that in the Hunt Chatter Thread.


    No using existing photos - No posters, books, pictures or computer images accepted. Your photo must portray the real thing. (If you are stuck and you must use an existing photo you will only be awarded Sneaky Points.)

    Photo Requirements:
    - All photos must be saved in .JPG form.


    Photo Hosts - You must have your photos hosted somewhere on the internet. You can create an album here at the TP or use external hosting such as Photobucket.
    Time - You must post your photo before deadline or your assignment entry will not be accepted. Please note that all times listed are in EST, or Eastern Standard Time.


    Content - All content should fit within the parameters of the site rules.
    No Changing Entries - Once you post your entry do NOT change it. The mods will be watching all entries and if it is discovered that you have changed your photo, your entry will be disqualified.


    Photo Thread posting - The ONLY posts accepted within each step/bonus photo threads are photo entries. Please keep comments and explanations to separate threads. These threads need to be kept free of comments to enable easy viewing so the hunters and mods can easily see the entries and not lose track of things. Comments in these threads will be deleted.

    :glitterball3:A Few Rule Clarifications:glitterball3:

    Each photo submission needs to be of a photo you took and uploaded. Images from the internet are not accepted as valid entries. If the MODs discover a submission does not belong to the member who submitted it, that contestant will be disqualified from the Hunt.

    There is absolutely NO TEXT allowed in the photo submissions! This includes adding text to the photos, submitting a caption with the photo, or submitting a title with the photo... and anything else that I can't think of right now. :lolpony: Your photo must speak for itself and should only include things that are actually IN the photograph. (All those texty type things are absolutely welcome in the Hunt Chatter Thread, so save them for conversations over there.) Any text included in a submission will be removed from the thread and the contestant will only receive Sneaky Points for that round.

    :glitterball2::glitterball2:Prize:glitterball2::glitterball2:

    A fantastic Christmas themed prize package will be awarded to the Photo Hunter with the most points at the end of the contest

    I have found this to be the most friendly, caring community of pony peeps anywhere.

    What's your favorite thing about Christmas and/or the winter season?

    I really enjoy giving to others, winter hats, cool boots and warm coats. Not to mention spiritually its the day I celebrate Christ's birth.

    It's sort of intimate, a lot smaller than, say, the Arena for example. Makes for a good community I think!
    What's your favorite thing about Christmas and/or the winter season?
    Ohhh the smell of pine needles, decorations, colours, spirit...

    Well, since I didn't enter the swap... I guess I'll give this a shot! :)

    What do you love best about the MLPTP?

    Most of all, how chill people are. :coolpony: Also, I love how so many of the older members are still around, helping newbies and remaining involved in the community. I look at pictures of meets and fairs and just wish I could go there and meet some of these amazing people at least once.

    What's your favorite thing about Christmas and/or the winter season?
    Oh, so many things! But if I have to narrow it down, I have to say two things:
    1. The feeling of being together under the tree lights, enjoying seasonal treats and having fun with family while it's cold or snowing outside.
    2. The fact that you don't need to be a Christian or even religious, to enjoy and spread the good feelings and messages of Christmas! (despite what some narrow-minded people might say) Togetherness, family, peace on Earth, goodwill toward Men, etc, those are things anyone, anywhere can get behind!
