    Hi folks,

    The new challenge theme for July '07 is going to be "Worst photo ever!". Certainly you can all have some fun with this one. Good luck everyone and don't forget to read the boring, but important stuff down below :).

    For all those who wish to participate in this challenge please take a moment to read through the following:

    - The deadline for submissions is August 31
    - The image can be no larger then 150KB*
    - Include your forum username when submitting
    - The submitted photo must be in the form of a .jpg
    - Please keep your photo anonymous (no distinguishing watermarks, and no photos that have been posted previously on the forum)
    - Submit no more than one photo
    - If you wish you may include a title when submitting your photo (please use no special characters)
    - The form must also be included when submitting the photo
    - The forum Admins and Moderators reserve the right to exclude or remove any photo solely at their discretion
    - The forum Admins and Moderators reserve the right to decide the winner of the photo challenge

    .........Copy and Paste this into your submission email...........................
    ThePhotoForum.com Username:
    *Photo Title (optional):
    Is the photo 150KB or less? Y/N
    Is the photo a jpeg? Y/N
    Has this photo been posted before? Y/N
    Please submit only one photo per challenge.
    Please enter your email subject as "Aug '07 Challenge Submission"

    *Please ensure that the attached photo is named the title you wish it to have otherwise the title will not be used.
    .......................................................................................................

    Please email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com and remember to enter the subject as indicated.

    All photos must include the form when submitted. Just copy and paste it into your email. This will ensure that no mistakes are made when photos are submitted and therefore, hopefully, no photos are excluded. If the form is not included in the submission email the photo will not be included in the challenge gallery and voting process.

    There is more important information regarding rules and procedures located in the FAQ section. We highly recommend that you take the time to read these FAQs.
    Good luck to everyone and have fun with this challenge!

    *150KB will be taken as the “size on disk” and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as oppposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger then they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    Argh. I already posted it :(. Sounds like a really interesting theme, as always. But will the worst pic win, or the best of the worst? Or perhaps the worst of the best of the worst...? I'm lost =S ;)

    Well the theme may not interest everyone, but unfortunately that's true with all of the challenges. It has received plenty of positive feedback and that usually means plenty of submissions, which is always a good thing.

    Our hope with this challenge is that people can have fun and play with the theme a little bit. At the very least we hope to have a laugh. However maybe people will look at their photos a little harder to identify what makes them bad? Apart from that who's to say a photo that is technically bad still can't be interesting?
