Education - Sept. Photo Challenge



September Photo Challenge


This challenge is about "learning" and creating an image that reflects the processes of education in some form.

The rules of this competition are that the image needs to be taken between September 3rd, when I announced the subject, through September 30th closing at 10:00pm.   This challenge is about expanding your opportunities, so please don't upload an archived image! Anything goes as long as it represents an image reflecting something about learning.  This can be as simple as a shot of a school building, books, still life of educational tools, teachers with students, or maybe something completely non-specific as long as it reflects learning.  I know sports events are part of the school system, but a more reflective sports image might be a coach working with a student.

In the caption, please describe your location, date and settings and anything special that you would like to include.  Please only upload one image per person!

Winner of this challenge will get their image posted on the main Meetup page during the next challenge.  Starting on Oct. 1st, please come back and vote on your favorite image.  The image with most votes wins the challenge.  BTW, you must vote in order for your image to win the challenge, even if your image may get the most votes. Anyone can vote, whether submitting an image or not.

Go out there and start shooting!

Note: In October, it will be about "Fall Color" which should be an easy challenge with all the colorful happenings for this time of year (wait till Oct. 1 before capturing this image).

    OK, the Sept. Photo Challenge is now closed and it is time to vote. Voting will be open until Friday, Oct. 5th at 10pm. Please only vote on one image, and voting is open to all members regardless of whether you attended or not. The vote should not be too difficult, as there are only 5 images to vote on. Guess it was a difficult challenge!

    Our Oct. Photo Challenge should be easy, as it is about "Fall Color" and will include any images taken from Oct. 1st to Oct. 31st.
