    Hi everyone,

    Thanks to those who took part in the April '10 challenge, let's see how the vote goes this time.

    For this month, I have decided to set the challenge topic as "Texture". I've been thinking about doing this for a while. What I'd like to see is some creative use of textures in the entries, whether they are examples of texture found out in real life, or whether they are of the variety used by layering a texture image over the top of another one. For those who don't know what I mean by this latter suggestion, go take a look at the following links:

    Texture 4 Layers
    Borealnz & Flypaper Textures
    Divas & Dreams

    By the way, no one should be needing to be contemplating buying any textures, there are thousands out there under a suitable licence - check out that T4L link for a useful description of what a suitable licence means

    The prize for the winner of the vote, as always, will be 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:
    1. The deadline for submissions is 31 May 2010
    2. The image can be no larger then 150KB*
    3. Include your forum username when submitting
    4. The attached photo must be in the form of a .jpg
    5. Please keep your photo anonymous (no distinguishing watermarks, and no photos that have been posted previously on the forum)
    6. Submit no more than one photo
    7. If you wish you may include a title when submitting your photo (please ensure that the attached photo is renamed as the chosen title)
    8. The form must also be included when submitting the photo
    9. Despite what the FAQs indicate, confirmation emails will not be issued.
    10. The forum Admins and Moderators reserve the right to exclude or remove any photo solely at their discretion
    11. The forum Admins and Moderators reserve the right to decide the winner of the photo challenge
    12. All submitted photos will be posted, along with a poll, in a new thread within the first week of the following month
    13. 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 on The Photo Forum? Y/N

    Please submit only one photo per challenge.

    Please enter your email subject as "May '10 Photo 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 opposed to 1KB=1024Bytes. When these programs calculate attachment size they will often read larger than they actually are. To be safe we recommend a target size of about 140KB so that once sent it does not go over 150KB.

    There are 14 entries so far, not including one person who's forgotten to attach their image (it happens and they've been informed). Usually there's a bit of a last minute rush, so I'd anticipate getting a few more before the deadline date.
