    Hi everyone,

    For the first time we're going to try a two month challenge. This challenge will be for July and August '08. The theme for this challenge will be "Travel".

    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 30
    - 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
    - All submitted photos will be posted in a new thread within the first week of the following month

    .........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 "July-Aug '08 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.

    Great idea about it being a two-fer. This gives time for folks to get somewhere, get back, and post.

    I've gone to find myself. If I should get back before I return, keep me here.

    i'm still a newbie on this? does this have to be a photo taken in the present, or can it be one taken while "traveling" a few years back?

    Hellopersonwithlongscreenname! :)

    I've only been around for two challenges thus far, but have noticed that while it's preferable to submit something recent, shot especially for the challenge, everyone here seems to appreciate nice images. So, it doesn't really matter, in all probability.

    But since the deadline isn't until the end of August, this should give most of us time to be thinking and working on it.

    Most of all, have fun!

    I think that the main requirement is that the submission is anonomous. So whatever you do.. Don't post it on this thread or any other thread until after the judging is over!

    Good point. That's the single most missed item from the challenge constraints. Post nothing here, it has to go to the email address in the post which sets up the challenge, and there can be no identifiers on the image. And no larger than 150k, and...

    :mrgreen:
