I guess it's time to post up the next photo challenge. I hope I have done this correctly. Please let me know if I have not! :)


The theme for the next challenge is : MUSIC.

This can take many forms - performances, instruments, musicians - as long as they are in the process of creating music! I would prefer that Christmas carol singers are NOT included in this challenge! But a Sally Army band, for example, would be ok... :)

Please send your entries to me by E-mail: kwilson @ ironteam dot co dot uk before midnight Sunday 19th January 2014.

Good luck!


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 16th December 2013 and 19th January 2014 inclusive.
Include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.

Full rules:
==================
1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between 16th December 2013 and 19th January 2014 inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery after 19th January 2014. 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.

Hope the trip goes well ... John

The XZs aren't E System. The challenge is for E System cameras. The group was set up as the E System User Group.

If the rules say E System cameras, then those are the only cameras allowed. Not XZs, not C2020s. (I didn't write the rules :) ).

They're both (& all) E series still! :rolleyes:

My music photos happened in October, so maybe I might share some of those photos eventually in Foto Fare.

The XZs aren't E System. The challenge is for E System cameras. The group was set up as the E System User Group.

And that was when there was no high end compact that an 'E' System User could use, but now we have these advanced compacts with a lot of Menu & operational options that are the same as the DSLR's, PEN's & OM-D's, so maybe the rules have become a little 'Decrepit'. :rolleyes: ;) :confused:

Sorry for being ignorant, How does one submit photo for the challenge? I went to the gallery but there is no listing for this music. Is it not open yet? or am I doing something wrong?.
