I ran this past Evo, and she thought it was a good idea. Mind you, the last time she said that to one of my ideas here in GD, it resulted in the never-ending Disney thread! :) Here's how it will work: 1. A theme will be given during the photo contest period. 2. Any digital photo relevant to the theme will be accepted. In case there's a grey area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first. 3. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 pixels. 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 if you wish. 4. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. 5. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how. 6. Only ONE picture per member per contest. 7. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best. 8. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, and there's a limit in a single thread to the number of poll options I can do, I will do the polling in more than one threads. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the the polling threads in the order they were submitted. 9. I'd like to play along too, so I hope no one minds that even though I'm running this, I'd like to submit my pictures as well. So can I? Huh? Huh? 10. These pictures should 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. 11. We will probably have to refine our rules here as we go along. I'm sure there's plenty of things that I missed. If that is clear, here is our First PF Photo Contest: YOUR CITY/NEIGHBORHOOD. Any picture of where you live is accepted. This can be your neighborhood, your housing development, the village you live in, or the large metropolitan that you call home. Any picture that depicts something in your city/neighborhood is allowed. All pictures must be submitted to this thread only. Zz.
