View Full Version : 28th Photo challenge: Small

31st March 2010, 12:53 PM
This months challenge is entitled "Small" My passion in photography is creative macro, but I didnt want to narrow the challenge down to only macro so I thought I'll call the challenge small, so we can have a wider range of creative ideas, so aim low and click away :D

Can this be made a sticky by an admin please *chr

Quick details:

-Max of 800 pixels wide or high
-Up to 512Kbytes
-EXIF intact please
-Taken by you on an E-series camera between 1st April 2010 and 22nd April 2010 inclusive.
-Please include your name, your forum moniker and a title for the picture.

Full rules:

1. Photos should be taken (dated in EXIF) between 1st April 2010 and 22nd April 2010 inclusive and sent in during that period. Photos will be posted in the gallery on Friday 23rd April 2010. We will vote in the week after this, voting will be completed by midnight Thursday 29th April 2010. I will announce the results on Friday 30th April 2010.

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-Series 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.

Please email me with the image attached at steved_np3@yahoo.com and please include the words Olympus Challenge in the subject line.

Enjoy the challenge. *yes
