The start of a monthly picture competition.....

I used the search (which i must admit is pretty useless!) but have not come across anything.

Is there such a thing, if not is anyone interested in doing one?

I was thinking of something along the lines of the Show Us Your Photos thread...

im just working out how this will work etc and hope to have something up regarding rules etc by tomorrow night at the latest, if not tonight.

And yes micoo, you can borrow someone camera as long as the picture taken is by you yourself.

sounds good

you pick and choose what you want for the rules as it was your idea. On other forums i have seen photo comps running on they have selected a subject... ie birds and every has to enter a bird photo, then everyone that submitted an entry can vote whos is best, then the winner picks the next subject, just an idea :thinking:

I was going to go with pretty much that exact idea.... subject based, a few rules, winner gets to pick the next subject etc. The rules will include things like... one shot per entrant, has to be your shot and no-one elses, no post production, a cut off date, everyone (as in everyone on the board here) gets to vote, the top 3 then get voted for again and the winner gets to choose the next subject.

Just not sure if there should be a tangible prize to get some real interest going

Sancho ( plus some numbers ; I cannot remember his username properly!) had one last year on here for photo editing and it started well but fizzled as people went on holiday, forgot to check etc so the winner didn't get on with it . It was a good thread but ultimately failed!

We did have a 'monthly theme' a few times over the past few years the thread has been running, but contributors mainly photographed their usual subjects.:giggle:
Why not use that thread somehow, rather than having a similar, parallel one. You could have a separate thread, run by yourself for 'voting' and 'comment' and 'awards' and 'the grand annual champion'.??
Or not. I don't know how that would work.
