First Ever Newbie Summer Bud Contest
In the spirit of thinking that if you grow pot it is cheaper than therapy and plus you get weed ~ it was suggested by NYUrbanFarmer that we have a contest for newby growers to get them involved and show us some of us old-timers some new ideas!

Therefor I am announcing the opening of the International Cannagraphic's

First Ever Newbie Summer Bud Contest
It's as simple as this:

Go to your profile and select my strains, click grow reports and choose new report.
Fill out the grow report and submit it so it can be approved.
Create a new thread in grow diaries forum with a link to your thread
and then continue your thread in the diaries forum.

The rules:

Any NEW grower that chronicles his grow of a particular strain with a detailed Grow Diary and posts a detailed Grow Report by September 30th will eligible for consideration as Summer Bud Contest winner.


Quote:
Note: NEW Grower means anyone who starts this contest with under 300 posts...
This brilliant idea was cooked up by the folks in the American Growers Social Club and NYUrbanFarmer here on ICMag.com.

The prizes are beans kindly donated by BushyOldGrower (BOG Seeds), MedMan and SeedBay.

The grow should be well documented with photos from each stage of growth. While some may not yet be finished with their grow by the deadline, you may still be considered for voting if you have detailed your grow with at least weekly posting with photos of the grow in progress.

Harvested pics should be included if available, and of the final product if cured in time for the deadline.

Voting for the contest will begin October 1st, 2014 and close Wednesday, October 15th at midnite.

Voters will be asked to judge the following items to determine the winners:

The quality of the information in the Grow Diary.
The frequency and presentation of updates (weekly updates?).
The quality of photographs and or videos.
The design setup explained, details can make for a really great thread.
Unique setup and design.
The amount of interest in the grow.
Strain review.
Smoke report.
Answers to questions in the thread.
The end result, the quality of the harvest.

These are the criteria to be used to judge the contest. So it's NOT JUST THE END RESULT, nor is it based solely upon how the plants look, how big they are, or how well they smoke. It's about how well the grower did documenting the grow and other factors like innovation or responding to questions.

Also please note that grows can be from seed or clone or virgin birth, they can be grown indoors, outdoors, on your porch, on your yacht, houseboat, or even in your orbiting space craft.

AND if you decide to enter this as a group effort, that is okay also! But you all have to be newbies

Have fun!

Thanks again to Clarence at SeedBay, BushyOldGrower, and MedMan for providing the prizes! But mostly thank you to NYUrbanFarmer and his American Grower's Social Club for suggesting this contest!

Wow, glad to see the contest is already getting so much interest NY

Oh and when it was suggested earlier that we put this together as a regular contest, that was the plan; for the American Grower group to partner annually with ICMag to host the event. Thankfully this initial contest was approved and set up! Now, bud gods willing, the contest will go smoothly so that we can turn it into an annual contest.

Great idea, I'll be entering this as well.


Question, and I'm repeating the same one asked before, but I'm not too clear why we would write a grow report based a crop we haven't harvested yet.


The questions on the grow report ask me for information I wouldn't know, considering this grow is still in progress.

Will I be able to edit the grow report after the diary is finished?

Because as if I'm reading it correctly the steps are, "Start a grow report, then a diary"

Would seem to me the diary on the grow would be first, then the grow report documenting the finish product and impressions following that.

Unless I'm completely high. Which is entirely possible

steadydets may be right.
also, this needs to be cleared up, cause it doesn't make sense:

The reason for the grow report is to submit your intentions to Admin. the report can be edited at anytime the edit your report option is on the grow report page. This way Payaso can match these reports to the threads of the contestants because people sometime use different thread names. I think the only thread that I see that Identifies the diary with the contest in the forum is mine. I haven't yet seen any diaries that notion their for the contest. But payaso can take all the grow reports from the specific time span or date period and keep track of them without having to search through many threads from many contestants.

Does this help a little?
