Post by andygolfer » Sun Jun 09, 2024 10:23 am

This is the SPOTM (Special Photo Of The Month) competition for June 2024, as June 6th 2024 was the 80th anniversary of D-Day so the subject is any civilian registered warbird with invasion stripes

The subject of your entry should be a photo of one or more civil registered aircraft painted with D-Day invasion stripes as worn by all allied aircraft during the invasion of Normandy

Photography Competition Rules :-

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry..

2. The photo may have been taken on any date, it does not have to be taken in the month of the competition

3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not. HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 7th June 2024 - please note the extended closing date to enable anyone with a last minute photo plenty of time to prepare their entry.

5. Voting will be conducted by a poll open to all the membership shortly after the closure of the competition.

6. 'Rule 6...' There's no rule 6 Bruce'

7. The decision of the moderating team is final.

9. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.

10. Please also embed the images and not links to images, if you're not sure how to do it then shout up and someone will sort it out. It is permissible to change your entry before the closing date.

11. Do not comment on other member's photos.
