How the "Daily Challenge PLUS" Works

How the "Daily Challenge PLUS" Works

The winner of each DCP challenge will host the next challenge, choosing their own topic.  Please remember when you are entering your photos to look at the end time of the challenge, if you know you will be away enter NEs and be sure to check back so the challenge doesn't lag behind.

The Daily Challenge PLUS (DCP) in an ongoing daily challenge with new topics every 48 hours to accommodate everyone no matter where on the planet they live. This time frame enables everyone the opportunity to participate.

Winners of the previous challenge are to host the next challenge. If you win, you have 24 hours to start a new challenge, failure to do so will result in the second place winner hosting the challenge, and so on.

Winners earn points every challenge, these points accumulate for the month and the member with the highest score receives the title "Photographer of the Month" (POTM), and will be presented with an award with one of their photos featured. The 12 POTMs will then be up for the "Photographer of the Year" (POTY) at the end of the year.

The points are as follows:

1st.        =             10 pts.

2nd.       =             8 pts.

3rd.        =             6 pts.

4th.        =             4 pts.

5th.        =             2 pts.

This point system allows a chance of winning over the month without having to enter every challenge and catch up if you miss one.  

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!

After you have entered, take a moment to look at the entries of other members and comment on their work.  Leaving feedback is highly encouraged.

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 10/3  (Remember we have members from all over the world so the challenge is for 48 hours that way everyone can have the opportunity to participate).

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, not animals in a zoo.

At the bottom you can click on "Preview" if you want to make sure it looks the way you like or "Add Discussion"

Please post example photos in the post not as replies!

Selecting a Winner

When the scheduled end date is up, return to your challenge and leave a comment about the challenge now being closed.

Sort through all the entries and select your top five photos from the eligible entries.

If a member enters 3 photos, only one can be in the winner's thread, they cannot place multiple times as the winner in one thread.

Start a new discussion, DO NOT alter the title of the challenge to announce winners, it is very confusing for people to follow it is done that way. Your "Discussion Title" should have the word "Winner" included in it. EXAMPLE:  Winners of Landscapes.

List the winners in reverse order starting from 5th. place, if you have chosen a HM (Honorable Mention) post that before the 5th. place and continue in descending order.  We strongly encourage that you post the photos of the winners in the challenge as well, makes it easier for members to associated the person with the photo that won. You should also explain why you have chosen these photos.

Please be sure to list the photographer's name and double check the spelling.


  • You may enter up to 3 entries per challenge.
  • 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).
  • Be sure to label your entries and non entries as such, all photos that are submitted without will be disqualified from the challenge and considered NEs.
  • Photos can be old or new, just as long as they are related to the topic at hand.
  • Winner has 24 hours to start a new challenge. The challenge will be handed off to the 2nd. place winner, 3rd. etc. if not started on time.
  • All photos submitted must be your own work.

If you are not received email notifications of posts, please make sure you are following the discussion.

I am not sure if others here are members of byte photo, you may have gotten an email from them but they and 2 other sites are being sued for "photo competitions" simply voting for favorite photo, no prize award.  It is a stupid lawsuit that has no merrit and could take this photo hobbyists site down and bankrupt her.

I am still extremely busy but will catch up on the photographers of the month this week.

I have been advised of the problems with some members and am considering the best thing to do.

Although I do not have the time to post here much these days I am still around and if you have any questions or problems please contact me and I will deal with them.

Thank you all for your continuing support of the group.
