How To Enter

We’ve decided that it might be nice to change things up a bit, so we started to introduce themes from June 2015! Each month we will pick a theme, some will be easy, others might push your creativity a little bit.

NOW ACCEPTING: September 2016 “New Beginning”.

We are excited to announce the theme for September will be “New Beginning”! This one is really simple, it can be absolutely anything new. A new day – so a beautiful sunrise, a baby bird, a field of flowers marking a new season… really, the list goes on and on.

You can get snapping, we are accepting entries for the September “New Beginning” Photo Of The Month between August 24 and September 16th, 2016

If you’d like to enter but you are not 100% sure how it all works you can have a look here.  If you know what it’s all about, then you can go straight to emailing your photos through to with the subject: “New Beginning Facebook Photo Submissions”Please rename the files to include your own name!!

Alternatively, upload your photographs to the official Orms group on Flickr: Please note that we do curate the images and only those that relate to the theme will be included in the competition.

The next Photo of the Month draw will take place during the week of 20-26 September 2016.

Please Note

Please keep in mind that we do check for duplicate votes. If you really like one of the finalist photographs (or you took the photo) and you would like to see it win, please share the post with your friends via the share buttons to the side of the post! Our finalist selection process does not involve using Facebook likes or comments as votes – we select our finalists from the collection of photos that were submitted to us via email or via the Flickr group.
