The Forum Flagship section is where forum members can have an input on which photo will appear in the header on a month-to-month basis. Submissions relevant to the theme can be made by members throughout the month. Near the end of each month, a vote will be held to determine what appears on our header for the following month.
The preferred size for the header image is 1200 x 340.
However, we will accept submissions from 1080 x 300 up to 1200 x 340*.
*Submissions outside of these requirements will be ineligible.
Please note that any image posted in a nomination thread must not be any wider than 1024 pixels. Images posted to the forum that exceed 1024 pixels will be deleted. We ask that you post your image at a reduced size to the forum and provide a link to the full-size image below it.
To keep the end-of-month voting manageable, members are asked to submit no more than three entries per month. Under special circumstances, this may be overruled by a staff member.
Topics will be announced early in the month. Submissions will then be collected until 9:00 PM PST on the second to last day of each month. Voting will last for approximately 24 hours.
Please check the relevant thread frequently for any changes to the deadlines.
To make the threads more manageable, please do not post the same submissions multiple times throughout the topic.
There may be occasions where pictures of scale models will be accepted as nominations. If so, this will be mentioned in the nomination thread.
Please do not add West Coast Ferries Forum to your Forum Flagship submissions. You may add the location, vessel, date or photographer preferably in the lower left or lower right hand corner of your submission.
To the best of your ability, we ask that the horizon and/or subject in your submission be as level as possible. Slanted photographs cause the upper section of the forum to become lopsided to the viewer and appear unprofessional.
Please see the following example:
If you need assistance, please PM any staff member.
Do not submit photographs that were not taken by yourself unless you have proper permission from the originating photographer. Responsibility of the images submitted are those of the contributor, not West Coast Ferries Forum and/or its staff.
The nomination that finishes in first place will be displayed on the headers of the West Coast Ferries Forum Facebook page and Twitter page.
Staff reserve the right to alter, change or modify the image displayed as Forum Flagship at any time.
