11/11/11

The last day of this week's contest will fall on 11/11/11. So it should be appropriate that your photo must have the number "11" in it. Note that it must be 11, not 1, not 1111, not 1111111, not 34311322, etc. However, that number eleven can be with other numbers. It may also be in written form, i.e. it is spelled out as in "eleven" rather than in Arabic numerals. It may also be written in Roman numeral, or spelled in another language other than English.

Good luck!

Contest Rules:

1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 800 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread

I'll bet this is isn't the only example of this anal behavior that we'll see on this thread - waiting patiently until my PC turned 11:11 on 11/11/11.

November 11th is a Polish Independence Day. Plenty of November 11th streets here - this one is about 200 meters from me.

Sorry, I can't award the prize because it's 12 instead of 11. Try again next year.
