Information

7-DAY CHALLENGE  The place where you can learn, share your knowledge and compete in challenges in a friendly athmosphere.

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.

Below are the rules and information how to enter challenges!!!

How to Enter the Current Challenge

Scroll down to the "Discussion Forum" and look for the current challenge.

Click on the current challenge, there you will see what the host has chosen as a topic and any guidelines they may have listed.

Directly underneath the challenge description is a box, this is where you label your entry insert your photo for your entries. Do not add them as attachments please!

Pay attention to the dates of the challenge realizing that if you are selected the winner you go onto to host the next challenge. If you know you will not be available then please enter only NEs.

How to Start a New Challenge

Scroll down to the bottom of the "Discussion Forum" and look just below the line border, you will see "+ Add a Discussion", click on that. 

You then will have a new page "Add a Discussion" and will be prompted in the first box for a "Discussion Title", the best way is to list the topic of your challenge (Flowers, Cars, Windows, etc.) followed by the dates of the challenge, time and time zone. EXAMPLE:  "Roads & Paths" - 10/1 thru 17/1.

In the next box, titled "Post" add a description of what you are looking for or not looking for, more detail on your topic and post some photos of examples.  EXAMPLE:  For this challenge I would like to see your photographs of wildlife …

Selecting a Winner

Start a new discussion, DO NOT alter the title of the challenge to announce winners. Your "Discussion Title" should have the word "Winner" included in it. EXAMPLE:  Winners of Landscapes.

3 winners are to be chosen.  HMs can also be included.  When you list the winners start from the HMs, followed by the 3rd, 2nd and 1st places.

Rules:

  • Contestants may enter ONLY one entry which has to be new.
  • You can enter non entry photos (NEs) up to the amount the host allows. If the host doesn't specify a limit to NEs then NEs will be unlimited. (Non entries are not subject to winning).

  • Photos have to be only new shot after the launch of the new challenge.  EXIF data will be checked.

To all group members ....

I know that many of you have to work and sometimes work doesn't give us the opportunity to be active in these challenges.  But please, if you know that you cannot host a challenge in the case of winning due to work loads, please post NEs only.  I can understand that sometimes you cannot predict what work load you are going to have but always try to do your best.

Thanks everyone for understanding

Regards to all

Jas

Thanks for your support, advice and suggestions Robert!!!

Comment by Robert Davis on August 27, 2014 at 1:54pm

Awesome Jas. This date issue could probably easily be resolved by doing exactly what you have suggested, reset the date/time stamp in the camera. I know I'll be checking mine this afternoon. What a great idea/subject to bring to the table for everyone as I'm sure not everyone knows whether or not their cameras are set correctly. I'm sure everyone will now check and recheck their cameras to make sure the date and time is current. Superb idea.

Comment by jas saj on August 27, 2014 at 12:44pm

The issue regarding camera dates:

I encourage all members of this group to recheck their current date and time on their cameras.  Please change the dates to the actual date so that the thing about EXIF will not pop up again in the future.  I understand that many of us stick to the rules, but I have also noticed that a participant made a genuine mistake and didn't check the date and time on the camera.  So, just to keep things flowing positively please check and if needed re-set it))))

Thanks and health to all

Jas
