I updated the prize list. There's less than a month to enter so plan on submitting something soon! Check out the entries we have so far. parrotsandbirdsunion.deviantar…

Theme: Birds in Winter

Deadline: February 1st 2013 at 11:59PM Eastern Time (USA)

Criteria:
All submissions must include a bird as the focal point with an obvious winter theme to it. Snow and defoliated trees are examples. The appearance of a bird being cold can count (puffy/huddling together).
:bulletred: Residents in the southern hemisphere/tropical areas: A wintering bird in your area or a photo of a bird taken in previous winters can be accepted. If you live in Florida, submitting a bird in winter/basic plumage counts. Image data is required to be accepted if a photograph. DeviantART will do this for you if the image isn't heavily doctored.

If you are not sure if your submission counts you can always ask!
