I've recently installed some software that allows us to have Photo competitions, it seemed like a good idea at the time lol.

Anyway, I was pondering on a way to use it and have come up with the idea of 'Maggotdrowning Calendars' :D

Basically we run a monthly competition where for the first two weeks of the competition members can upload one photo, fishing related, as that month's entry.
For the second two weeks members can then vote on which photo they think is best.
The one with the most votes becomes the photo for that month, and at the end of the year we put all the winners together to make a 'Maggotdrowning Calendar 2021' and find a friendly printer who can run a batch off, low cost but decent quality.

What do you reckon, is it worthwhile getting it up and running, is it something you'd be interested in ?

Definitely Dave - I'd have one - most fishing calendars are pretty naff.
Could maybe get each month sponsored too.

That’s a great idea Dave. I’d definitely buy one. And vote for pictures.

No nakedness, just clean, non-political, memeless, fishing-related photos :)

Definitely the germ of a good idea Dave.
Providing it doesn't descend into farce like some of the threads on here or simply become a diary of ugly mugshots of drowners holding pond pigs !
