Nikonians is pleased to present its Best of 2015 Images Photo Contest, open to all Silver, Gold and Platinum Nikonians Members.

Nikonians, in an effort to promote and recognize as many talented photographers as possible, whose images serve to share, learn and inspire us all, is dedicating this contest to all the participants of the Nikonians Forum Challenges/Contests and Forum Assignments Contests of 2015.

ELEGIBILITY. All Silver, Gold and Platinum Members are eligible to participate in any and all theme categories of the monthly forums contests and online assignments. The monthly contests winners, selected by the votes of Nikonians members, automatically qualify as finalists and their images will be uploaded automatically into the Best of Nikonians 2015 Finalists Gallery.

Are you currently a Basic Member? No worries. Just upgrade now and you will be eligible to post and win.

IMAGES SIZE. Images must be not taller than 900 pixels (regardless of composition), to ensure that 100% of monitors in current use by Nikonians members can fully display the images and view them without scrolling.

There will be Nikonians Certificates of Photographic Achievement awarded to all the 2015 Finalists, winners of each individual monthly or periodic contest throughout the year. Such winners are selected by the votes of the membership.

At the early start of the year 2016, judges will be selected among members of the Nikonians Masters Society, composed of outstanding professionals and distinguished advanced amateur photographers around the world, who will select the Winners of the Best of 2015 Images Photo Contest. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded during the second half of February 2016, to allow for all monthly contests winners to enter the competition, including those of December 2015, voted for by members during the month of January 2016.

The Winners of the Finals will be drawn from The Best of Nikonians 2015 Images, finalists gallery. Each one of them will receive the Nikonians Certificate of High Photographic Achievement and prizes from our sponsor(s).

The winning images are displayed prominently for the community at the Nikonians Photo Contest forum, the Nikonians Newsletter and a 2015 Nikonians Photo Contest Winners page will be published. They will also be shown in a special issue of The Nikonian eZine
