    Hey everyone,

    We've had fewer submissions for the last two challenges so hopefully we can bring the numbers back up for January. So the new challenge for Jan '07 will be a "Free-for-all". The winner of the January "Free-for-all" challenge will win a prize courtesy of ThePhotoForum.com.


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

    - The deadline for submissions is January 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 jpeg
    - 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 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.

    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 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.

    BTW, Any submitted photos for the challenge will not receive email confirmations for the first two weeks of January. I encourage you to submit photos as they can be received, but replies confirming that they were received won't be sent out until about mid January.

    This really focuses on a rule that has been around since the start. Essentially, what it really focuses on is that, in the event of a tie, the admin/mod team casts votes to determine the winner.

    OK, but the original post says submissions are due by DEC 31ST.
    You mean JAN 31ST, right?

    1 entry per person.

    So free-for-all is open to a photo of anything.... at all? Not even the slightest restriction?
    maybe to people/outdoors/still life...... nope? lol *_*
