    Hi everyone,

    Thanks to those who took part in the September challenge, let's see how the vote goes this time.

    The Photo Challenge this month is on the theme "Abstract Art"

    EDIT: Prizes, we have prizes. To the winner of the vote will go a $25.00 Amazon voucher courtesy of the TPF owners.

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

    • The deadline for submissions is 31 October 2009
    • The image can be no larger then 150KB*
    • Include your forum username when submitting
    • The attached 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 ensure that the attached photo is renamed as the chosen title)
    • The form must also be included when submitting the photo
    • Despite what the FAQs indicate, confirmation emails will not be issued.
    • 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, along with a poll, in a new thread within the first week of the following month
    • Once created, the voting poll will last for 14 days before it closes automatically

    >>>>>>>>>> Copy and Paste this into your submission email <<<<<<<<<<

    ThePhotoForum.com Username:

    *Photo Title (optional):

    Is the attached photo 150KB or less? Y/N

    Is the attached 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 "October '09 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 &#8220;size on disk&#8221; and not the actual file size. Also some email programs consider 1KB=1000Bytes as opposed 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.

    So, is the theme "Live Performance", like quoted above? Or is it what's in the subject line, "Abstract Art"? I assume it's the latter, just a little clarification.

    Push it as far as you like for me. From a personal stand point, I'd like to see what some of you can come up with, though I'd say that it would need to be obvious that the end result is based on a photographic image.

    For reference, here's what Wikipedia says on the subject - Abstract Art

    Thank you. :))

    I was actually thinking if HDRs and Panned images are allowed.

    So long as it is recognisably created from a photographic image to which you hold copyright, then yes.
