2012 September Photo Contest: Rough Textures

  • Sep 26, 2012 · 11:45 PM

The theme for September is ROUGH TEXTURES! Here is Elane's words on her chosen theme...Texture, specifically rough textures; stuff that if you ran your hand across the surface it would feel rough. Think sandpaper, rust, peeling paint.

The September contest will be open for entries beginning on Sunday, September 2, 2012 and run until midnight Wednesday, September 26, 2012. Voting will then open on Thursday morning September 27th and run until 5:00pm Sunday, September 30th. The winner will then have 24 hours to decide what the theme for September will be!

So think ROUGH this month, can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Happy shooting!

A COUPLE OF SPECIAL NOTES:

PLEASE NOTE: If you paid your $10.00 contest fee to enter last month's contest YOU DON'T have to pay again to enter the monthly contests for the rest of the year.

IF YOU HAVEN'T paid to enter the contest, please be sure to do so BEFORE you enter your photo. If you don't pay, no worries, your image will just be flagged as exhibition only!

TO POST YOUR ENTRIES:

  • Click the "PHOTO" tab on the navigation bar at the top of the Meetup site.
  • In the "PHOTO" tab, there will be a PHOTO ALBUM titled "2012 August Photo Contest: Storm Clouds"
  • Upload your entry there
  • Don't forget to give it a creative title, or I will give it a generic one! LOL...much better if you name your image!

VOTING POLL:
Once the entries have closed for the month, I will create a Member Voting Poll, so everyone can go in and vote for their favorite image for the month.

To "VOTE" you:

  • Click the "MORE" tab on the navigation bar at the top of the Meetup site.
  • Click to open the "MONTHLY VOTING POLL"
  • You will find the entries listed according to their title that is posted in the Monthly Contest Photo Album.
  • Select your favorite image, by clicking the button next to the image you want to vote for.
  • PLEASE NOTE: If we have more that 12 entries in a monthly contest we may have to open 2 or more polls to handle all the entries! Meetup only allows us to put 12 entries in any given poll.
  • PLEASE ONLY VOTE FOR 1 ENTRY!

      Yeaaaa, because if you don't, I will and I am pretty sure you know your photo better than I do!

      If I recall correctly, in past years (pre-FRP) we didn't add names. So, I'm a little behind- but what's new.

      Mike, in the left hand column, about 6 lines down, there is a Pay Online button. Click and follow the prompts.

    There doesn't seem to be an album set up for the September contest. Just one for August. Where do we enter our September Contest photos?

      OK working on it. I need a photo to post to get the September Contest started. If one of you want to send me yours I'll start with it. [masked]

      OK, the Contest Album has been created! May the roughest pic win!

    My question is the same as Peggy Zemans' ... Where do we post to the September Contest. I followed the instructions and my entry ended up with August contest entries. Help!!!
