Using the voting facilities on the Forster Digital Photo competition gallery.

The web galleries provide a voting facility which is used to determine the "Member's Choice" awards each month. Albums are opened for viewing, commenting and voting immediately after each monthly meeting. Voting remains open from the evening of the monthly meeting until 4.30pm on the 28th of the month. The results of the Member's Choice are emailed to members after voting closes and winning images are placed in the Awards Gallery on our web site.

To search for a particular image in the competition gallery system use the "Search" button which appears at the top of the gallery pages.

You can enter any part of the image title in the search box. For example, typing the word beach in the box and clicking the "Search the file collection" button will find all images which have the word beach in the title ... such as "windy beach", "beach scene", "on the beach" etc.
Once you have located the image you wish to vote for simply click the thumbnail to display the intermediate size image. Below the image you will see a "VOTE" button. All you need to do is click this button to register a vote for that image. After voting why not type in a comment? ... the comment box is just below the "VOTE" button.
Members can only vote for one image in each grade ... which means a total of eight votes, one in each grade in both open and set subject. Members can not vote more than once for any image and can not vote for their own images.
