Anything from hang-gliding to macrame (including fishing)

Most of you forum members will be tired of my five header photos appearing at the top of the page. ;)
I would like to run a low key monthly competition where photos will be submitted during the month on a dedicated thread and the winner will have pride of place at the top of the page for the following month.
The photos submitted must be taken in New Zealand and each monthly winner will have the opportunity to choose a topic for the next month.
Topics should have some interest to RV-ing . Idyllic camp sites, sunsets, wild life and places / people of interest would be the main themes, but would be happy for a little imagination ;) :-T
Obviously the successful shot would need to survive cropping to fit the panoramic location at the top of the page.
When a photo is posted, it should be numbered with each new entry using the next highest available number. ie #1.
A democratic judging system is yet to be finalised and the whole process is subject to the occasional modification as the need arises.
Most importantly, it will be the subject matter and how it is portrayed so that photographs taken with a cell phone will have as much chance of making the cut as a professional one taken with expensive equipment.

June topic: NZ Native Birds

Example only to start the ball rolling.

A side issue is I use a 8" tablet vertically and not horizontally therefore the picture at the top never appears..FYI.

Bumped back to the top of "Active Topics"

There must be more than two budding amature photographers out there wanting to strut their stuff ;) :)

Have bumped this back to the top of active topics in the hope of garnering a bit more interest.
The photos submitted really need to be suitable to stretch out as a banner - Myles' "in flight" Kereru is spot on.
