Contest FAQs

  • Who can enter the contests?

    Only registered members can enter contests. Go here to register if you haven't already.

  • Can I enter more than once?

    Yes. You can enter as many images in any active contest you want. Just keep in mind that quality is better than quantity.

  • Can I enter the same image more than once?

    No, that would be silly. Please do not ever do that.

  • How do I enter an image in the contests?

    Click the "Contests" tab on the tool bar.

    Click the "Add a picture" for any contest that is on the page. (There's a similar "Add an image" link on the home page.)

    Name your image in the "Title" box.

    Write a description of your image in the "Description" window.

    Select the browse button to choose the image you are uploading. There is a size limit of 5000 KB for all images. Your image will also be resized if it is larger than the site's maximum values which just happens to be 1200 pixels wide and 1500 pixels tall.

    Select any "Additional Options" in the check boxes to suit your liking.

    Submit your image by selecting the "Add Picture" button and you are done.

  • I made a really big image, what happened to it?

    The software automagically resizes any entry that is larger than the site's maximum values.

  • Why don't I see any rating or scoring information here?

    You have to select the image to see the scoring option. Once you select the first image in the contest you can toggle through them all by using the Previous Image/Next Image options.

  • How do I rate images?

    Our scoring system is simple. 1 to 10. 5 is average. Here is a nice rating/scoring guidelines article.

  • Who can comment on the images?

    Anyone who is a registered member can. The golden rule applies here. "Give as you would like to receive". You can also comment on your own anonymously during the voting period.

  • Can I rate my own images?

    No. That would also be silly.

  • Do I have to score the other images?

    No. We would like all members to score all images in a contest even if they don't enter.

  • What do I win if my image ends up with the highest score?

    A big pat on the back.

  • Do I have to pay any money to use this site?

    No. Choppix.com is a "for fun" site at this time. That may change in the future. But we seriously doubt it.

  • Other sites give out trophies, pay credits or real money for winning. Does this site do that?

    Sort of, you will see a trophy below your image on the home page, on the contest view, and the individual image. We also have featured images and cupcakes. Fun times.

  • Are there any subject matter rules concerning nudity or porn?

    Yes. This site is rated PG13. Use your own good judgment here.

  • Who do I contact if I have further questions.

    Any admin. We all have our email addresses available and the PM system works well.

  • I'm feeling really creative. Can I vary from the contest directions and claim it's my artistic right to do so?

    We will remove any image that doesn't fit in. Just follow the guidelines and contest directions and you will do fine.
