The theme for Sprint (April-June) 2021 will be: Contrast. The contest will run for the months of April, May and June 2021. Remember, there's no one "right" way to interpret the monthly theme--think outside the box, get creative!

Winner of the Challenge will receive free TPF membership for 12 months.

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 months, 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 as an attachment. Use subject line "Spring 2021 Photo Challenge" 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 (UTC 0) on the last calendar day of the contest closing 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. Contest entries must be SFW.
4. Images must be anonymous--images with watermarks or identifying information embedded in the EXIF data or title will be rejected.
5. 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.
6. Contest moderators are not eligible to enter.
7. Entrants must be a member for at least 10 days and have contributed at least 10 meaningful threads including an introduction.
8. Rules 5, 6 and 7 may be suspended in the event there are fewer than three (3) entries for that month. The contest may also be canceled in any month containing less than three (3) entries.

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.

I think I will try to accept this challenge, sounds like fun! One question though. I am not sure what it means to "Resize photo to be no longer than 1200px on the longest edge."

I tried Google and all that comes up is how to resize images within Adobe and other paid-for editing programs. I don't have any of those programs. I only have the one that came with my laptop in Windows, sorry I'm still really new to all this. So, if anybody can point me in the right direction that would be great! I'm super excited to try and do this challenge. Thank you!!!

I did not know this was here, thanks for the bump. Random thought... would be cool to have all the challenges easier to locate with a little more advertisement on the home page. There is usually more than one challenge/contest going on at a time and not one of them are on display without a thorough run through/search of the forums. Again just a random thought. Contrast it is. Now... where is my coffee. =]

Edit: The contest are the second link on the front page! Haha... Pay attention... Photo themes! I meant photo themes are hard to find. *cough* *cough* :happyblush:

Ok, just emailed my photo for entry in the contest. I hope you got it snowbear. I know I will probably not win, but I loved having the challenge to think about when I'm out and about shooting pics, it was a lot of fun! I look forward to future challenges and talking more with all of you about photography.
