    The committee (Streetshooter, stillshunter and bilzmale) has continued to work with Admin on the idea of organising a photo challenge for members and to incorporate some of your feedback from the first challenge. In these early stages we will continue to use the "Other Genres" sub-forum of "Image Threads" to post each challenge.

    The time frame has been adjusted to encourage even more member involvement by allowing posting over the weekend. Our purpose is to inspire each other to take and make pictures! If you are unable to photograph during these 5 days, images from your back catalogue are also welcome. Images should be shot using a "serious compact".

    The next Theme will be announced on Friday so stay tuned.

    Happy shooting!

    The Weekly Challenge

    Each Challenge will open on Friday at 8am New York time (1pm London, 10pm Sydney).
    Each member may submit only one photograph per Challenge.
    Entries must be your own work, taken on a serious compact and fit the Theme selected.
    Entries do not have to be taken during the Challenge although that is encouraged.
    The thread will close on Wednesday at 8pm New York time (1am Thursday London, 10am Sydney).
    Voting via a Poll will be possible from Wednesday 9pm New York time and close on Thursday at 8pm.
    Voting is only open to members who have entered the Challenge.
    The winner of the Challenge will select the Theme for the next week and start the new thread ready for Friday.

    Is there a challenge forum? Where do we find each week's challenge. This is a great idea!

    Andrew the Challenge does not have a Forum yet so we are using the Other Genres sub-forum of Image Threads. You can see the first challenge here.

    The next challenge starts on Friday 8th April.

    Thanks for setting this up and posting, Bill! And no way, Don, the theme envelope will remain sealed until its opening on Friday. Money and/or other forms of bribery will get you nowhere. Though, maybe if you could deliver my Fuji X100 this week, I'd find a way.:rofl:
