The 2013 Caudata.org Calendar Photo competition is now officially open!

Each year we hold a competition to find 13 stunning photos to display on the Caudata.org calendar. Calendars are sold via the Caudata.org store to hobbyists throughout the world.

The rules are very simple:
1) The image must be of a newt or salamander.
2) The image must be a minimum of 2000 x 1500 pixels, although the larger the better. Most modern digital cameras produce much larger original images.
3) You must be the owner of the photo. You will retain the copyright. By entering you give Caudata.org permission to use the image on the calendar.
4) You may enter a maximum of 5 images.

How to enter:
It’s simple – submit your photos to the following email address photocomp@caudata.org. Please only email one photo at a time/per email! The closing date for entries is the 31st October 2013 now November 24th 2013.

Images that meet the above requirements will appear in this thread for all to enjoy. Please do not post images directly to this thread.

Previous years winners can be viewed here: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012 (entries) and 2013.

Good luck!

Hello all. Thank you for doing such a good job with the photos, Mark. I do have one small request, however. Can you please rotate my Cave Salamander shot so that the salamander is facing the correct direction. Thank you, and good luck to everyone.

You can only enter your photos in the competition by following the guidelines at the top of this thread. That means emailing your photo to photocomp@caudata.org. You can't post your entries to the thread - that is not a valid way of entering. Mark has to post them to the thread for you.

    That´s the most accurate. Depends on the size of the tub etc. - you just want to make sure the water is always clean

    That jungle fungus clear. I've been dealing with some fungus with my axolotl on and off this summer. The Holtsfreter solution and water changes just seem to do the trick after a bit

    Hi Delaney. Can you be more specific? There are lots of reasons for cloudy water, such as substrate getting kicked up, water hardness, etc. if you don’t have hard water and it doesn’t settle then I’d do a water change and see if that helps.
