Grumpy Betta Contest

************************************************** ********
LEGAL DISCLAIMER:
This contest is in no way sponsored by BettaFish.com or it's affiliates. I take full responsibility for said contest. Approval was granted by dramaqueen.
************************************************** ********

To celebrate my daughter's first birthday, I want to host this contest. This contest idea is brought to you by jessan2442. He won the "Contest to find the most original contest" I hosted last month.

As the name suggests, this contest's aim is to find the most grumpy looking betta with the funniest/weirdest caption.

How to Enter: Contestants are allowed to enter ONE "Grumpy" photo of their betta.

How things will be judged: I'm looking for 3 judges. Please let me know if you are interested! Contestants will be judged on a 10-point scale, with the winner receiving the highest score. If there is a tie, there will be a shootout. Photos will be judged on two criteria: 1) How grumpy their betta looks and 2) How funny/weird the caption is and how well it goes with the photo.

Rules:
1) Only one photo per member.
2) Photos need to be of your fish.
3)You need to be a member of BettaFish.com as of this contest post.
4) AB seller must be able to ship to a Transshipper in your country. Contestants are responsible for verifying this information prior to entry.

Prize: 1 All expenses paid AquaBid betta ($60USD buy it now value of fish). I'll take care off all expenses to get the fish to your door.

Because jessan did not take the prize in the last contest, I will be throwing in a 5G Aquarium Kit and Heater (US residents only, due to complications and expenses with exporting this to other countries, sorry).

Contest closes May 20, USA 12midnight Eastern standard time!

Question: If one wins the contest, with a picture and caption of a betta of their own, can they donate the prize to someone else of their choice?
