Re: E-Group Pen competition rules and entry details

I'm wondering if Ian is having to hold off these two competitions, which are of course sponsored by Olympus, because of the stushie going on at the moment. Maybe some of the judges are Olympus employees who are currently otherwise engaged?

If so, a brief spilling of the beans would be good before I go and splash out on a new tux!

Oh, you don't want to go spilling beans on a new falling-down suit!

It would be nice to hear something, I'm new to the site, but when everything goes quiet you wonder if something has happened to the individual concerned which has put everything else in their life on hold. I'm hoping Stephen's suggestion is correct

I had a look at DPNow & noticed Ian was posting there, so my guess is things are on hold till something becomes clearer with the future of Olympus.

Question Re: E-Group Pen competition rules and entry details

any news since this? I don't usually lurk here so I'm thinking I might have missed something

You certainly did. See: http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=18176

Can I ask a question? Why don't you spend more time here? What do we need to improve to captivate you?

Re: E-Group Pen competition rules and entry details

thanks Ian! many good photos from the look of it

and to your question, I'm mostly a film guy (and I don't mean movies! ) so I spend most of my lurking time in filmwasters.com or on flickr where I have both.
you seem like a bright bunch though, I can enjoy reading but I don't feel that I can contribute much.

but things can change.. flickr ain't the best place for discussions (crap thread handling and searches) and I use 43romours only for reading.
