Returning September 2015 on a trial basis:
The winning images Sept-Nov 2015 will not be featured on a calendar. If there is enough participation to warrant continuing the contest by January 2016 the winning photos from 2016 will be held to create a calendar for 2017.
Enter one photo per month.
You can upload your photo to Flickr or another hosting site that allows you to embed your image in our contest forum.
Photo resolution should be large enough to print at 11.5 x 9 inches (3400 x 2700 pixes) in Landscape mode (wider than it is taller)
Photo DPI should be between 100-300 for quality printing
When the contest is opened for submissions a new forum topic will be created. All contestants should post their photos in that topic.
Submissions must be in by midnight CST on the last day of each month.
Voting will last 7 days and you must be a member of crabstreetjournal.org to vote.
Photos submitted may be featured in our magazine as well. By entering this contest you are granting CSJ permission to use your photos on the site and in the magazine.
Winners will be awarded a prize that will be mailed to their home. If you are a under the age of 18 make sure your parents are willing to grant CSJ admin permission to mail your prize to you.
December voting runs one year behind to allow us to have our calendar ready for purchase before the end of the calendar year.
So for example:
December 2010 photos will not be voted on until fall 2011 and the winner of that vote will be the December crab for the 2012 calendar that will go on sale December 2011. This new set up began December 2010.
Non participation months:
If there is a month where no photos are entered, random photos will be selected by the CSJ
admin from previous entries to fill the vacant spots.
The photo for the cover of the annual calendar is also chosen by vote. All of the monthly winners will be entered in the year end voting, including the December winner.
The winner of Cover Crab is awarded with a free copy of the calendar. Anyone may purchase a copy of their own from our Cafepress store.
Items featuring individual winners will be available for sale as well. You can request your photo on a specific item by contacting CSJ Admin.

I can see some of the photos. I see Lexi and Hexxus. You can only post one for the contest each month so please delete any that you don’t want to be the one entry.
Also the crabitat photos belong in the other thread.

Anne, can you upload to flickr.com? Unfortunately the right size file is larger than the 2MB allowance for attachments. That’s why we suggest using flickr to host the photo and then embed the photo into the forum. When it is clicked it takes you to the original photo.
You can also add it to the CSJ Calendar Crabs group whilst you’re there 🙂
If anyone is against having a Yahoo! Flickr account email me an email with the subject: Calendar Crabs 2015 September and the ORIGINAL size of the photo and I’ll upload it to flickr and email you back with the code to copy and paste into the text box 🙂September 22, 2015 at 8:31 pm #3406
Ann Grady Haahaa
What really happened was that me and venessa spent the past hour figuring out my photo and what proper resize to get it
I’m currently on iPhone 6 and iPad and that’s giving me trouble . Plus a newbie on Flickr
I usually use photobucket
Omg !! The hassle and now a big relief off my shoulders that we got this figured out now.
Now I need to learn this so this don’t happen like this the next time ..
( head bangs on desk ) hahaSeptember 22, 2015 at 8:31 pm #3407

Hi Marnel, Your photo doesn’t reach the minimum dimensions.
Do you have the original? Can you create a Yahoo! Flickr account and upload the photo to your photostream and then photo the video at the top of this post?
Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files.September 23, 2015 at 6:01 am #3415

Justin thinks that one little leaf over a dish will hide a crab in a 1 1/4″ shell.
