    Hi everyone,

    Alright, it's time to start recycling some old challenge themes. "Portraits" was probably my favorite challenge from way back when it seemed like just about everyone took part. I think we can double the number of photos this time around tough (just don't ask me how many photos there were the first time). I will tell you this much though the winner of the last Portrait challenge was CrazyAva. Her winning photo can be found here (Warning: May not be safe for work) http://thephotoforum.com/gallery/files/96-200406-CrazyAva.jpg

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

    - The deadline for submissions is Oct 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
    - 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 "Oct '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.

    You can use a pinhole camera if you like, as long as you can get it to the site in electronic format, you are good to go. Heck, I've seen some cell phone camera shots way better than I can do with $5k in camera... ug..
