Jury members who have posted in a picture themselves cannot give their votes for the respective month. The others send their vote via e-mail to the host of the METEOROS-site. The vote consists of 3 points for the picture they personally consider to be the best one, and 2 respectively 1 point(s) for their further favourites.

The photograph receiving the most points will be declared winner and then will appear for one month on the opening page of http://www.meteoros.de

By the end of each year, the members of the forum will vote for a "Photograph of the Year". This picture will be honoured with a price.
