    DEDICATION

    Just over one short year ago (August 2015), Sharon Monett, known as sm4him, very happily took the wheel of these Photo Challenges and the Photo of the Month forums when a new moderator was needed.

    Sharon was one of the charter members of the silliness known as The Coffee House. She was spiritual; she sang in her church choir and participated in its ministry. After a hard day when she wasn't allowed to close her office door at work, she liked to indulge in a meal and a margarita at her favorite Mexican restaurant. She loved her family and her Tennessee Vols through and through. She was a calligrapher, a designer, and a proud Eagle Scout Mother.

    Sadly, Sharon had to give up the helm when she became ill several months ago. Then on August 4th, 2016, she passed away. Our TPF community mourns the loss of a great photographer and friend. I will miss her very much.

    In her honor, the monthly challenge will now be known as the Sm4him Memorial Photo Challenge. Its inaugural theme for the month of September will be something that was very near to her heart, Volunteer.

    ------
    Remember, there's no one "right" way to interpret the monthly theme--think outside the box, get creative!

    HOW TO ENTER:
    The challenge contest is open to any registered member of TPF.
    1. Take a photo (photos should be taken during the challenge month, and should NOT have been previously posted to TPF). Resize photo to be no longer than 1200px on the longest edge.
    2. Email photo to tpf.monthly.challenge@gmail.com. Use subject line "August 2016 Photo Challenge Entry." In the body of your email, include your name, TPF username, and the photo title.
    PLEASE name your file the same as the photo title.

    Deadline to enter is midnight GMT on the last calendar day of the month.

    The TPF Fine Print
    For your convenience, EVERYTHING you REALLY need to know to enter the contest is listed above. However, you may find the following information useful, should you wish to read it.

    General Contest Information
    1. One entry per person. However, you may submit a new photo to replace an entry made earlier in the month if you choose.
    2. Images must have been taken by the person submitting them.
    3. Images must be anonymous--images with watermarks or identifying information embedded in the EXIF data or title will be rejected.
    4. The challenge moderators reserve the right to reject an entry for any reason they deem appropriate. You will be notified if your photo is rejected and given the reason for the rejection.
    5. Contest moderators are not eligible to enter.
    6. Entrants must be a member for at least 10 days and have contributed at least 10 meaningful threads including an introduction.

    Voting Process:
    1. Submissions will be compiled into a voting thread within one week after the entry deadline.
    2. Voting polls will remain open for one week.
    3. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by a panel of moderators.

    Oh, and I like bacon and sausage!

    It was collaborative - there were a number of ideas and I had help in pulling things together.

    Great idea.

    Though, if I show the emblem of the University of Tennessee Volunteer's emblem would I automatically win ? :)

    Can I enter one that SHE took and "Voluntarily" gave me? She was my Secret Santa a couple of years ago and I was the lucky recipient of one of her photos.
