Please join me in congratulating jlandy for being chosen as the August 2016 CN Imaging/Sketching Contest winner!


:applause: :thewave:


As John won the site-wide contest, he has graduated from the Beginning and Intermediate Imaging Forum.  :bow:


In order to provide a level playing field and to encourage participation by novice imagers, entrants in the Beginning and Intermediate Imaging forum who win the semi-finals poll in the CN Imaging Contest a total of three (3) times - or who win in the finals regardless of the number of times they have won the semifinals - will have demonstrated sufficient proficiency at astrophotography to no longer be considered a "beginning or intermediate imager". Such an imager will be considered to be a "graduate" of the Beginning and Intermediate Imaging Forum, and are encouraged to compete in the other imaging or sketching forums. The exception to this rule will be in the case of an entrant who wins the semi-finals poll in Beginning and Intermediate Imaging as an uncontested entrant. An uncontested winner in the semi-finals will not have their win count toward their "graduation" as a beginning imager unless they also win the overall contest.
