Edition 326: 28th March 2014   

Hi ExplorOz Reader,

We hope you enjoy this week's edition of our newsletter with all the latest information about what's happening on the website.

Voting Period Extended

Comp Image
The quality of photos submitted by the outback photographers in this year’s competition are outstanding but the volume of votes from the audience is very disappointing! There are 283 photos in the competition and hardly enough votes to call it a fair decision so we have decided today to extend the voting period for another 3 weeks, so come on ExplorOz vote now!

All you have to do is browse through gorgeous photos of Australia! Too easy. As you are viewing each one, let your reactions guide you. Simply move your mouse over the stars and rate each photo based on how they represent the Aussie Landscape and how it would look painted onto a circular saw blade. A 5 star vote is the maximum, and a 1 star is the minimum. ½ star votes are also possible. It doesn’t matter how many pics you vote, nor how many you give the same vote – it all depends on the total volume of votes received and the highest aggregate score.

This links now allows you to view ALL photos on one page. So go make yourself a cuppa, click THIS LINK TO VIEW ALL PHOTOS and start voting!
Voting period extended to 17th April (last day before Easter).

Wildflowers Bio Regions

Article Image

The ExplorOz Wildflowers section has now been updated to display Bio Regions for each Wildflower, enabling you to identify which area each wildflower is found in (see left for example for the Mountain Bells flower).

Now that the mapping is available, we would like to encourage you to add your own photos and additional descriptions (if required) to existing posts - please ensure that you are certain that your plant is indeed the same genus and species as the record that you are posting in.

If you cannot see a matching record for your photos, you can easily create a new entry, so please take the time to have a look and contribute!
