How the 7-DAY CHALLENGE works
Every week the winner of the previous challenge will choose his/her own topic and start a new challenge stating the date when the challenge will close.
These challenges will be a week long starting from Monday and ending on the next Monday.
Every week the winner of the challenge will be awarded a trophy. At the end of the year the member with the most number of trophies will be awarded “PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR”.
If you enter challenges we strongly recommend that you will take the time to comment on photos of other participants.
For these challenges only new shots are to be posted. Shots taken before the launch of a new challenge will be automatically disqualified. So please NO ARCHIVE SHOTS.
SHOTS WITHOUT EXIF DATA SHOULD NOT BE POSTED. IF A MEMBER POSTS ARCHIVED SHOTS HE/SHE SHALL BE BANNED FOR A MONTH.
Below are the rules and information how to enter challenges!!!
