View Full Version : Challenge #54 - WATER

10th February 2013, 01:32 PM
The theme for the next challenge is something we have plenty of at this time of year, at least round here: WATER

Please send your entries to me by E-mail: cariadus @ gmail dot com before midnight Sunday 10 March 2013

General rules:

Max. 800 pixels in width or height
Up to 512KB
EXIF intact
Taken by you on an E-series (4/3 or m4/3) camera between 10 February 2013 and 10 March 2013.
Include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.
Full rules:
1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between 10 February and 10 March 2013 inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery after 10 March 2013. We will vote in the week following, results announced soon after voting closes. More reminders and details nearer the date.

2. You must be the photographer who created the picture in order to enter the challenge, and all entries must be visibly anonymous and should be sent to the challenge organiser. You must indicate (a) your real name, (b) your e-group forum name and (c) a title for your photo, in the email. Any entries that are not clearly identifiable and verifiable won't be entered into the challenge.

3. Entries to the challenge :

Should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects and no borders
Must be jpg format and no more than 800 pixels on the longest edge
Must have been taken on an Olympus E-* camera
Must have all EXIF data included for the organiser to verify.
Max file size to suit the gallery here is 512kb.
4. You need to be registered on e-group.uk.net forums to qualify for entry into the challenge. The organiser may also enter the challenge (the entries are anonymous and the organiser is trusted to record votes accurately).

5. Only one entry permitted per challenge please. But if you want to withdraw an entry or replace it with another that's OK, you must make it clear in an email to the challenge organiser before the closing date, also ensure the email contains clear instructions and (if required) your replacement picture.

6. Voting on the challenge:

Any registered member of the e-group forum may vote, including those who submit entries.
Those who submit entries may vote for their own photo but are expected to allot their choices fairly on perceived merit.
Voters should list their three choices in order of preference, by display number and title to avoid confusion.
Points will be allotted as follows: three to first choice, two to second choice, one to third choice.

That is a great choice of subject Roger - you don't even need to leave the house for this one;)

Hope you get loads of entries - I am away to get me thinking head on:)

Thanks Greg. I thought I'd make it quite wide in the hope of getting as many entries as possible.

By the way, could the mods make this a sticky perhaps?

(Any chance of making this a sticky, mods? And maybe removing the sticky from Challenge 53?)

Roger - if you send a PM to Ian and The Music Man, one of them will sort it. They may have just missed this thread in all the traffic.

Ciao ... John
