    Now That Looks Like Fun

    Your pictures must contain something that would be fun to do. It would help if there are actually people having fun doing it.

    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 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, 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. 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.

    There are at least 2 different activities here that look like fun. In fact, I can testify to the fact that they ARE! :)

    Because of the lack of photo submission for this contest, and with permission from moe darklight, I have decided to cancel this contest.

    This also marks the end of our photo contest. Thank you to everyone who had participated. There were some astounding pictures since we started this. It was a lot of fun, and I hope you had enjoyed them too.

    Thanks for all the time you put into these photo contests. They have inspired me to go out and snap a few shots of everything just in case you have a contest for it someday......It was fun to participate.
    Thanks again!

    Thanks Zz. You must have put in a lot of time managing this series. I appreciate it.

    I was waiting for the "Awwwwww!" competition to submit this one.
