Porsche of the Month Photo Contest

Overview

The purpose of this ongoing contest is to promote member participation and to highlight Porsche club members and their cars. It is meant to be more about sharing and showing off the people and their cars than winning a prize. The "prize" in fact is simply being published in the SlipStream newsletter as the winner. Every qualifying picture submitted will be shown on our website and social media sites (at some point). I'm still trying to figure out how to display all the photos submitted.

I select ONE PHOTO PER DAY as the PHOTO OF THE DAY that is posted on INSTAGRAM. Out of the PHOTO OF THE DAY photos I pick the PHOTO OF THE MONTH.

Photos NOT SELECTED as PHOTO OF THE DAY will be placed on FACEBOOK in a separate album to be voted on my members. The top photos will be considered for the following months contest.

Contest Rules

1. Photos submitted must be Porsche or PCA related and they must be either taken by a CURRENT PCA member or the photo must be of a CURRENT PCA member and/or their car. Non-members are welcome to share photos but they are not eligible for this contest. If you own a Porsche please join PCA today and submit your photos.
2. All photos submitted within a specific month are eligible for that months contest ONLY. Submitting multiple photos means you are competing against yourself as well as others.
3. By sharing / submitting photos you are giving the Maverick Region permission to publish your photos online and in print.

Instructions on submitting photos

Send us your BEST Porsche pictures. There are now 2 ways to submit. Our online form is the preferred way. Flickr is second as we have over 2500 members and managing photos through email is very difficult.
