    5. No watermarks or signatures on the front of the image. All entries must be anonymous to better the contest experience.

    6. All members are welcome to participate.

    7. No participant can win more than one prize per year. The year will run from Jan 1 thru Dec 31. Once you win, your card is ineligible for voting till the next year. You are still welcome to play, but your ATC will be for "exhibition only".

    9. Do not post your entries in the Gallery, on Facebook, or anywhere on the internet until after the contest ends. Anyone posting prior to the end date will be disqualified from competition. Once we have announced the winner of the contest, feel free to upload your entry to the Monthly Contest Gallery.

    10. To avoid possible disqualification for vote solicitation, it is highly recommended that entrants refrain from posting about the contest while voting is running. And if you admire someone's work and think you recognize it, wait until voting ends to post public compliments.

    AN IMPORTANT TIP! ~ The quality of your scan or photo is important to your success! We want your artwork presented at its best. Please take time to be sure it is lined up square, cropped, bright enough, and in focus.

    Please send all questions about this contest as a private message to ohhappyday. All messages to the thread referring to a specific ATC entry will be deleted. Again, this is an anonymous contest and all entries must be kept anonymous.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Can the subject be non-human? I probably won't enter, but I was curious.

    Good question!

    That's a good question plumhill...and I suppose it's a matter of interpretation, but according to Wikipedia a portrait is of a person.

    A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.
