The theme for the next challenge is something we have plenty of 24/7 :eek: it may be an indoor or outdoor image STILL LIFE and COFFEE

Please send your entries to me by E-mail: Chevvyf1 at gmail dot com before midnight Friday 26 April 2013

General rules:

Up to 512KB
EXIF intact
Taken by you on an E-series (4/3 or m4/3) camera between 26 March 2013 and 26 APRIL 2013.
Include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.
Full rules:
==================
1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between 26 MARCH and 26 APRIL 2013 inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery after 26 APRIL 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.

Chevy,

There seems to be a contradiction regarding dates. The body text says:

"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. "

10 March 2013 was two weeks ago...

Nudge! ;) Nudge! ;) :eek: Just to bump the thread

I thought a Still Life, probably indoors due to ghastly weather would be a good idea. I am not so sure now :eek: NO entries so far. :( :( :(

Anyone going to enter ? please :D

I was planning on Saturday, then got distracted as I was intending to take on Sunday. There was something yellow and glowy in the sky...

Seems that things have conspired against me :( Sorry Chevvy. Seeing as coffee takes up a great portion of my time I thought it'd be easy but it hasn't been

So sorry Chevvy, but work, illness and babysitting duties means that I'm not going to make your deadline...

Best intentions, but I just couldn't manage it this month.
