2nd April 2009, 08:42 AM
Hi all

Here is the theme for the 16th e-Group Photo Challenge. I was thinking April .... ummm .......April showers - NO ........Easter - NO ...

I thought then something to get everybody moving as the weather is supposed to start improving so I thought: Transport - Past and Present. So that's it. Just as a taster here is one I took earlier - seen parked at a Keswick car park this weekend.

I'd appreciate it if a Figure of Authority could make this a sticky in the forum please.

The Rules

1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between - 00:01 GMT Thursday 2nd April 2009 - and midnight Friday 24th April 2009 and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery on Saturday 25th April and voting will be completed by midnight Thursday 30th April, giving just about 3 weeks to get entries in.

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 :-

a. Should contain no watermarks, distinguishing effects and no borders
b. Must be jpg format and no more than 800 px on the longest edge
c. Must have been taken on an Olympus E-Series camera
d. Must have all EXIF data included for the organiser to verify.
e. 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:-

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

Pictures to be included in this 16th Challenge must arrive in my inbox before midnight on Friday 24th April.

Please send your entries to terryh1609@yahoo.co.uk and include the word OLYMPUS in the title.

Wishing everyone the best of luck, have fun!
