8th E-group photo challenge: Relaxed

Greetings one and all.

Here's the 8th e-Group Photo Challenge. Its the summer holiday (for some) so - the subject will be "Relaxed". Plenty of scope there I think :-)

Same rules as before: The challenge will be open to all members of e-group www site. Pictures should be taken (dated in EXIF) between Friday 1st August and Sunday 31st August.
Entries to be with me by Midnight on 1st September please, with the word Olympus in the email title.

Voting will start 2nd September and will close at midnight on 5th September.

The rules, as usual, are listed below. Anyone submitting pictures that do not comply with the rules will be informed of this, and will be asked to resubmit the picture in compliance with the rules. If this doesn't happen, I'm afraid the picture will not be included/uploaded for judging.

The Rules

1. Please feel free to submit a picture that matches the nominated theme (in this case – "Relaxed") that must have been taken between 1st August and 31st August (including both of these dates).

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 and (b) your e-group forum name in the email. Any entries with watermarks or that are not clearly identifiable won't be entered into the challenge. (this makes it easier to organise)

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.
4. You need to be registered on e-group.uk.net forums to qualify for entry into the challenge.

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. Pictures to be included in this 8th Challenge must arrive in my inbox before midnight on 1st September. This allows 24 hours for you to process and submit any pictures you may have taken on 31st.

Please send your entries to pete@snaar.co.uk and include the word OLYMPUS in the title. I get loads of spam daily and have to delete dozens of emails from names I don't know

Good luck, get stuck in, and have a go - you might win, I did!

Pete

PS, perhaps some kind moderator could make this posting Sticky like the previous one...

I hope everyone is out there relaxing... though I doubt it will be in the British sunshine as there isn't any...!!

Re: 8th E-group photo challenge: Relaxed

Here we go! Bank Holiday Weekend. The forecast for today looks good, and the other 2 days could be good as well, depending where you are..

Now's the time to get out and spot those "Relaxed" images for our monthly challenge..

Hope to see yours soon

Cheers

Pete H
