We proud to announce that screen shot competition is on. Awards will be given every month from the pictures with the highest “Rating”. Using the CVA Gallery, post your best shots and vote on your own and any others you like. We will tally votes from the time it is posted plus a following month of votes. Then the award will be given.
So as you have noted we started using the Gallery in March. At the end of April we will award the winner from the March posting and at the end of May we will award the winner from the Aprils shots.
Please note that you can only post a maximum of 2 screenshots per week, so post them wisely. Good luck.
From what I see now looks like Jaakko Koponen is on track to win the award scheduled to close at the end of April.

Hi Frank,
If isn't something that's already being considered I'd like to suggest that each month's winning screenshot be added to the banner rotation on the CVA front page.

Gary

This is a good idea , Right now I have Chuck working om a hall of fame page and special frame to ID the awarded Picture, but front page is a great Idea I will see what Chuck thinks.

Just to be sure you understand what I mean, I'm talking about adding the winners to the existing/new "banner" on the front page that was originally brought up in the "Looking for screenshots" thread on this forum http://canadianva.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=3037 and if I may also suggest making the "banner" image clickable so that it brings you to the "Hall of Fame" page that you mention for each monthly picture displayed in the banner might be a good idea as well? Just a thought...

Added to the banner and clicking it will take you to the appropriate page.

I don't seem to be able to see screenshots I have uploaded to the new "Gallery".
Is there an approval process before they are visible or am I doing something wrong?
FSX saves them as bmps and I uploaded them as jpegs to make smaller files.

Just a reminder.... One more week to submit your shots for the May competition and I want to add there is also one more week in the voting for April winner to be placed in the Hall Of Fame. If you are not sure how to vote, click on your favorite shot in the Gallery (to open full screen)

http://canadianva.com/phpvms/index.php/screenshots

Then if you have not voted for this screenshot you will [Boost Rating] button. Click this button… that is all.
