Found 7th Dec 2007
PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE EXTENDED THE COMPETITION TO RUN UNTIL MIDNIGHT 2ND JANUARY. THIS WILL ALLOW THE NEW SITE TO SETTLE DOWN A BIT MORE AND ALSO GIVE MEMBERS A MORE RELAXED TIME SPAN TO POST THOSE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION PHOTO'S.

THERE'S ALSO NO REASON WHY PEOPLE CAN'T POST NEW YEARS CELEBRATION PHOTO'S IF YOU WISH.

LASTLY TO ANYONE THAT HAS ALREADY POSTED, MANY THANKS AND IF YOU WISH TO CHANGE ANY OF YOUR PHOTO'S PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DO THAT. JUST REPLACE THE IMAGE YOU HAVE UP NOW WITH A NEW ONE.

THANKS AGAIN. ANY PROBLEMS CONTACT ME AND I'LL GET BACK TO YOU ASAP.

[CENTER][SIZE="6"]:santa: A CHRISTMAS COMPETITION :santa:[/SIZE]
[SIZE="5"]AND MAKE IT SNAPPY ![/CENTER][/SIZE]

[CENTER][SIZE="5"]:gift: PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED FOR FIRST, SECOND & THIRD POSITIONS. [/SIZE][/CENTER]

[SIZE="4"][CENTER]It seems HUKD have quite a few budding photographers on the Forum so with Admin's and Mod's kind support we thought it might be nice to have a HUKD Christmas Photo Competition ! ![/CENTER][/SIZE]

[SIZE="4"][CENTER] What we would like to see are your photo's which capture the feel and spirit of Christmas. [/CENTER][/SIZE]

[CENTER][SIZE="4"]You don't have to be a David Bailey in fact all you need is a camera and the ability to upload your photo's to HUKD. (See seperate post) Entries will be judged by a members poll at the end of the competition. Please only upload 1 photo in each post with a maximum of 5 posts for each member.[/SIZE]


[SIZE="3"]We would love EVERYONE to enter. We want to see images showing every aspect of the Wonder of Christmas no matter how expert or amateur they are. HUKD members are fair and you can be sure all entries will be judged for their content rather than technical ability. There will be a seperate Discussion thread where members can ask for help and advice if needed as well as discussing everyone's entries. [/SIZE] [/CENTER]

Some boring rules :
Make sure they are your own pictures, posting pictures from the web or wherever will be embarrassing when it's spotted ! Keep your photo's to the following format of not more than 640 x 480 pixels please, 1 photo per post, maximum 5 posts per member.
It's a family site so nothing too risque.
HUKD has a strict one member, one account rule, please don't start another account as you will end up disqualified at the least.
If you have to use photo editing software then carry on but HUKD members are a savvy lot and my bet would be the winners photographs will be as natural as can be.

[SIZE="5"][CENTER]Common sense, fun and Christmas Spirit are the order of the day. Enjoy yourselves and keep it friendly please !! [/CENTER][/SIZE]

[SIZE="1"][CENTER]Competition runs from now until midnight 2nd January. Members poll will nominate their favourite photo at the end of the competition and then we will have a seperate poll to decide the winners. Further details will be published nearer the end date. Prizes will be sent ASAP after the winners have been notified. Prizes have no warranties or guarantees. Members are responsible for ensuring that all images are their own to publish on the net and any person captured in an image has given their permission. In the case of minors this would be the parents permission. Members suspecting any breach of the rules should use the report button on the appropriate post. All competition enquiries should be directed to hottoshop.[/CENTER][/SIZE]


[SIZE="6"][CENTER]:santa: BEST DRESSED SANTA PHOTO :santa: [/CENTER][/SIZE]


One of Syzables posts has given me the idea of adding an extra prize for the above. Let's see some photo's of Santa in his best outfit whether it be in the home, office, store or wherever Santa is visiting.


I have asked if Admin and the Mod's will judge this part of the competition for us otherwise the poll will get too complicated.


Same rules will apply.


The prize for the best photo wil be an Arthur Price "The Lichfield Collection" Silver Plated Photo Frame, 7" x 5".


[CENTER][SIZE="5"] Good Luck All [/SIZE]

[SIZE="6"]HOW TO POST IMAGES[/SIZE][/CENTER]

Thanks to Rayman for the use of the following guidelines on posting pics:

More Advice On Image Posting And Hosting:

If you hover your mouse pointer over the image you want to show, right click over it and you'll see either "Properties" in Internet Explorer or "Copy Image Location" in FireFox.

If "Properties" in Internet Explorer, you'll need to highlight the image Address or URL completely and copy it by right clicking over it once it's all been highlighted. FireFox is easier, as you only need to click on "Copy Image Location".
Paste the copied URL in to the field which states "Link To Image File" or for forum replies and posts use this to paste the URL in.

If you have an image on your computer you want to use, try imageshack.us or photobucket.com to upload and host them on.

Browse your desktop for the image you want to upload to one of those sites, then click "Upload". Once that's completed, a URL or web address will automatically be created for you to copy and paste as above.

Added by hottoshop:
Please keep images to a maximum of 640 x 480 pixels. You can either do that via your own comuter software or if using Photobucket you can resize from the edit tab. This will save the thread getting "broken" by large size images.

Many thanks.

Not too Christmassy (yet), but something to start off my entries:

how come there isnt many entries?

sazza2007

how come there isnt many entries?


If people are like me, they're waiting until it actually feels christmassy (if that's a word)...

As soon as decorations are up, I'm sure the photos will come (and at a guess, mine will involve cats).

mmm, i wasnt going to bother as im not good at photography lol

Here's one for starters :-

Even got the chestnut roasting tool handy by the fire and it is used as the fire is real!

I remember as a kid my Mum used to put chestnuts around the edge of the fire but often forgot to pierce them first - a few minutes later there would be hot chestnuts exploding around the front room and my Dad choking on his mince pies!

HMS Warrior at Portsmouth dressed for Christmas.

It is a seagoing tradition that ships have a Christmas tree tied to the foremast (even at sea) although not everyone seems to bother these days. In this respect Warrior is adding an electrical touch to the tradition.

[size="4"]Please note that I have extended the Competition to run until Midnight 2nd January. This will allow the new site to settle down a bit more and also give members a more relaxed time span to post those Christmas celebration photo's.

There's also no reason why people can't post New Years Celebration photo's if you wish.

Lastly to anyone that has already posted, many thanks and if you wish to change any of your photo's please feel free to do that. Just replace the image you have up now with a new one.

Thanks again. Any problems contact me and I'll get back to you ASAP.[/size]

Awwwww that is so cute

Poor camera at the time unfortunately. Taken 2 years ago in Cornwall when they was a very unexpected amount of snow! This was taken the day after the snow fell.
