This week, hazardous weather is our theme (apologies for the delay in getting this up - real life has been unexpectedly busy this weekend). Here are the RULES please read them very carefully before taking your photograph and submitting it for entry. 1. The photograph must show some sort of severe/hazardous weather. Here are some good examples: Pea Soup Night Light White Blanket I'll also accept pictures of mist, heavy rain, strong winds/gales, hail, ice, and any other kind of severe/hazardous weather. Please, no pictures of nice sunny days with clear skies. Lovely as they are, this isn't what the theme is about 2. You have until 11 a.m. GMT Sunday 15th October to submit thyour photograph. I am afraid that I will not accept late entries from anyone. 3. You are only allowed to submit ONE photograph[/b]. 4. The photograph you submit must be your own work, i.e. it has to have been taken by you. Don’t submit something your friend or family took, or something you found on the internet. It is a very sad and unfair thing to do. 5. The photograph must NOT be manipulated in any way using Photoshop or any other such programme. This competition is about how good a photograph you can take, not about what you can do with an image using Photoshop, etc. That is what the Fan Art forum is for. 6. Photos must be no bigger than 600x400 pixels - if they are bigger, I'll send it back for you to re-size it. 7. This competition is an anonymous one – this means you MUST NOT POST YOUR PHOTOGRAPH HERE. If you do, it will be disqualified, otherwise your friends will see it and may vote for it even if there are better photographs submitted. In addition to this, don’t go around telling people which photograph is yours and getting them to vote for it – that is a very sad and lowly thing to do, and the voting for this competition should be unbiased. Once you have taken your photograph, you should upload it to your own web space, such as a Photobucket account, and pm me the link. If people consistently do not follow these rules, or I see signs of any unfairness, I will not hesitate to stop these competitions. The rules are to make things fair, so please do follow them so everyone can enjoy the competitions. Winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd) will each receive a banner. Any questions, please either post them here, pm or email me. Now that you have READ THE RULES, you can go and brave the elements with your camera!
