    Hey everyone,

    Although it's a day early it's time to announce the August Photo Challenge. This month's theme is going to be "Still Life".

    Please read the following! If you don't read the following carefully your photo may not be included in the voting process:

    - The deadline for submissions is August 31st.
    - The image should be about 70k
    - The Submitted photo must be in the form of a jpeg
    - Please keep your photo anonymous (no distinguishing watermarks, and no photos that have been posted previously on the forum)
    - Include your forum username when submitting
    - Submit no more then one photo
    - If you wish you may include a title when submitting your photo

    Please email your photo to photochallenge@thephotoforum.com.

    Please keep in mind that in order to keep things organized we may choose to exclude some photos from the voting stage. We'll try to keep as many in as possible though

    Good luck to everyone and have fun with this challenge!

    maybe this is a dumb question but what exactly constitutes "Still life"? Is it...anything that isn't moving? or what?

    Whatever you make from that title, it could be anything (obviously no porn) that means still life to you...

    If you want to be stickler for a definition, here is one that will get you in the ballpark. It is from http://encyclopedia.laborlawtalk.com/Still_life

    Having said that, feel free to interpret it as you will! :)

    this question pops up every single month. the topic is not a set of rules you have to follow. it's a theme, and can be interpreted however you please. just remember that you might not get as many votes if your photo has nothing to do with the topic.

    does this submission have to be a recent photo or can it be one in the storage files?

    Doesn't have to be new, but we prefer it hasn't been shown here before as to not influence the voting :)

    I just wanted to let everyone know that they can expect delays in response to any submissions.

    I am currently in the middle of a move and I do not have Internet at home. I just wanted to let you all know that I may not have my home Internet connected for a week or two. Any submitters may not recieve a response until about the 14th.
    I'll try to get back to each person who submits to the challenge as soon as I can.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.
