Okay, so as you all know, the #USA website recently was updated a few months ago. However, we've been using the old #USA logo as the main picture for the website. It's a new year, and I think it's time for a change. That's why, I'm starting a contest for a new set of homepage pictures. Users will send their pictures to me, over the course of the next two weeks. After that, I'll post all of the pictures up, and have a vote where the entire channel can participate. The top 3 pictures will be selected for our website. Now this contest is the first of it's kind in #USA, so this should be kinda fun!

Rules, ah yes, the rules.
1.) Pictures you submit ***MUST*** belong to you.
----- In other words, if you didn't take the picture yourself, you can't use it in this contest. When you send your picture to me, you are granting #USA permission to use your picture on our website.

2.) Pictures you submit ***CANNOT*** have people.
----- We don't need someone's mugshot up on the website. We're looking for nice scenery images. Been to a beach lately? Have pictures of a winter wonderland? Maybe you have an awesome shot of a bird. This is the kind of stuff we do want.

3.) No violence, gore, death or other distirbing images.
----- Does this really need to be explained?

4.) Format and size limitations.
----- Your pictures must be in the JPEG format (also known as JPG) and cannot be larger than 5mb in size.

5.) Maximum submissions per user: 3
----- You can send up to 3 pictures to enter the contest. They must be sent in a single e-mail.

6.) Maximum selections after vote, per user: 1
----- If by some chance two or all three of your images are the ones with the highest vote, only one image will be used. No user can occupy more than one slot.

7.) Excluded users need not apply.
----- If you're banned or have your access suspended in #USA, you will automatically be disqualified from entering the contest. To enter the contest, you must be a user in good standing. I should note, at the time of this writing, there are no users who are currently suspended.

To enter the contest, send an e-mail to QueenElsa@usa-undernet.com with the topic: #USA Homepage Contest. Attach your images to the e-mail. I will reply to you to acknowledge your entry, once I receive and read your e-mail.

The contest will run from Jan. 5th, 2018 to Jan. 19th, 2018.
The vote will run from Jan. 20th, 2018 to Jan. 26th, 2018.

You can expect to see the winning images on the #USA homepage on Jan 27th.
