Congrats, maestros! 

This month we would also like to highlight one Diary.

@WhiteWidow, great job, man! In addition to the December gifts by Seedsman, you will also be THE FIRST GROWER to get an original GrowDiaries Master Grower HAT by GD Team! Keep up the good work! We hope to see more diaries like yours on this website.

 So yes. Growers! There are ELEVEN winners this month!

Ready to find out who are the WINNERS of the FIRST 'Newbie of the Month' ? 

Congratulations,  to all of you! CRAZY prizes by Seedsman and SHOGUN are waiting for you to provide us with your shipping addresses so our sponsors could send them out shortly!

Family! Please read rules carefully when signing up for the contest! We found several Diaries that were not literally first grow, they were first auto , first coco.. first Diary on GD ... anything but first grow and that wasn't really the point of the competition. We are rewarding FIRST timers in this contest ;) Next time will will try to put up a better description as well.

What do you think about the first 'no voting' month? LET US KNOW in the comments section below!

P.S. WHO of you doesn't follow GD on Instagram and Facebook? There might be your grow featured. Check it out!

Peace,

GD

I prefer that admin selects. Probably should on grower too.

@growdiaries how do you know if it's a first ever grow? Should just stick with newbie or apprentice status because you will have an impossible task vetting which are first time.

@Fire_Farmer, we were trying our best to investigate as much as possible but you are right, there might be changes needed in this contest.

@GrowDiaries, also maybe be more clear on the criteria for choosing the winning newbie grows? For example the first prize winner had multiple strains included in photos/description/yield info. The second place entry had several missing weeks. Not trying to nitpick, etc, as I don't have much skin in this game, but it's a bit offputting when the criteria calls for single strain, thoroughly documented diaries and then seem to be decided with those criteria arbitrarily enforced.

It would be interesting to know by what criteria the winners were chosen? a lot of garbage in my opinion! a lot of turnips over which we must cry! terribly small crops! I probably will stop my diaries, I do not see the point! I for that that chose people! honestly chose, without clones and begging! good luck to you GrowDiaries.:clap:

@Dukuu, the criteria is described here https://growdiaries.com/journal/gd-team-will-be-picking-diaries-of-the-month-in-january

We try not to judge by crop, we are interested in informative complete Diaries. Any grow is a grow learned, and that's what matters, along with the information that this website stores for other growers to see and learn from. Hope you'll still stick around for the community, the value of which does not come close in comparison to any gifts that GD Team and our dear sponsors provide.

Nice winners, nice growers, nice new layout for the section "Grower oft he month", good to keep the spirit of GD on and to increase it. Impressive webpage work. Good start into 2018. Peace and Energy! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
