Hey guys! I'm happy to announce that Pic of the Year will be back for the third year in a row. This thread will include any info you need to know regarding the contest and the POTM/POTY schedule. I'll start things off with some FAQs
What is Pic of the Year?
Pic of the Year is an annual poll I run in January/February. 50 of the year's top images are selected and put into a poll, and the picture that wins the poll is crowned Pic of the Year.
How do images qualify for the Pic of the Year poll?
All winners and runner-ups in the POTM contests are entered into the POTY poll. The remaining pictures will be selected from a special Pic of the Year nomination thread.
How does the POTY nomination thread work?
The POTY nomination thread is similar to the POTM threads, with some slight changes. Unlike the POTM threads, the nominees will be randomly selected from the thread and entered into the poll. Members can nominate as many images from 2017 as they want, as long as they follow these rules:
1. Girls MUST be 16+ years old in all pictures nominated, NO EXCEPTIONS.
2. One picture per comment.
3. Before posting, please ensure the picture nominated has not been selected as a winner or runner up in a POTM poll.
4. Please include the name of the girl and the image poster (unless it's your own upload) when nominating an image.
5. Celebs can have multiple pictures nominated, but avoid posting too many images from the same event.
6. Celebs with 6 pictures entered in the contest will not be eligible for the POTY nomination thread
We currently have 23 images selected for the poll, with November and December polls still to come. Unless we have some crazy big ties to end the year there will be a nomination thread to fill the remaining spots in the POTY poll. DO NOT POST NOMINATIONS HERE, THERE WILL BE A SEPARATE THREAD FOR THOSE.
When is this all happening?
Here's how the schedule will look from December to February:
Everything runs as normal until January 1st. The POTY nomination thread will open on January 1st and run at the same time as the December POTM poll. On January 15th the POTY poll will start, and the poll will be open for 1 month. On February 15th we will have a POTM nomination thread for January and February combined, as I don't want to do a POTM at the same time as POTY. After that everything returns to the normal schedule.
Well, I think that's everything. If you still have any questions feel free to ask here or PM me. Hopefully your favorite wins!
Tomorrow the December POTM poll and POTY nomination threads will be posted. They'll run simultaneously for the the next 2 weeks, ending on Sunday the 14th. At that time I'll add the December POTM winners and randomly draw from the nomination thread to fill the POTY poll.
This year we've had fewer ties in the POTM polls than normal, so there's a lot of spaces open in the POTY poll. You can nominate as many pictures as you'd like in the POTY nomination thread, just make sure you read and understand the rules before participating. I'll have all the details for you when the thread is posted tomorrow so stay tuned!
