This week, I thought we’d do something to help celebrate spring/summer Here are the RULES – please read them very carefully before taking your photograph and submitting it for entry. 1. It's entirely up to you how you interpret the theme, although I would advise you not to enter something too abstract that may be considered as having little or no relation to the theme. 2. You have until 4 p.m. GMT Sunday 28th April to submit your 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. Entries must be no larger than 600x480 pixels. If they are, I will ask you to re-size it. 7. This competition (like the icon challenges in Fan Art) 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) may each receive a banner, available from me upon request via PM. Any questions, please either post them here, pm or email me.
