    I had to wait till the fog cleared. I originally wanted to use Red Monarchs because the mountains often look red at sunset. I figured nature is pretty regal so white and gold can fit too. My fishing spot is across the lake one take it!
  5. This is the same entry from October 7! I thought SNC contest entrys had to be new pics or videos.

    New photos and originality is frowned upon.

    Always do what you do for the art.. Forget the "prizes".
    They're a joke man.

  9. Hey everyone,

    New winner! We do not take issues like this lightly, and have become extremely disturbed with the amount of people that have tried to pass off old submissions as new, and try to curb the system. This is not what we want to encourage, and therefore we have to take some serious action. Allister52 is disqualified from any future Saturday Night Contest for at least 6 months as a first offense. We like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and want to believe people are using this contest as a means to challenge themselves and honor the very simple rules we set. However, when repeated actions like this happen from multiple users taking advantage of this platform just to win a prize, enough is enough. It brings up the question sometimes if doing video and picture contests is worth it if we keep on getting old entries submitted as new ones? We certainly don't want to stop these kinds of contests and prevent honest people from taking on the challenge to win a prize that they worked hard to have a chance to earn. It's definitely not fair to the great people that take these contests seriously and have been since the beginning.

    We've even had to bring this up very recently in another contest, and we're tired of seeing it. We know all of you are tired of seeing it to. Of course, we don't remember absolutely every entry that has been submitted by every user ever and we don't have a file of every user's submitted entries to go back and check as that would take forever and delay the judging process. We usually look at time of upload for videos and photos on YouTube, Vimeo, and Instagram to determine whether or not a video or picture is old, but because we allowed a direct file upload as an entry instead of Instagram, we couldn't detect that. Going forward, all picture entries MUST be uploaded to Instagram. If you do not have an Instagram account, it is completely free to make one. We can't have this issue happen in the future.

    Which brings us to our new winner, which is philip M! Please contact our support team to claim your prize!
