New Meetup: 2010 November Photo Assignment - Up Close & Personal

Come check out the winners of the October Assignment - Me and My Shadow.

Announcing a new Meetup for The Denver Digital Photography Meetup!

What: 2010 November Photo Assignment - Up Close & Personal

You guys rocked and did great with the rule changes last month - so they stay in place this month!

Also there will a December assignment but not a contest because of the holidays and they year-end contest, so the winner of the November assignment chooses the theme for the January assignment.

Billie won the October competition and got to choose the theme for the November assignment. Here is her chosen theme.

Theme - Up Close & Personal
Billie's comment on the theme:
Share with us a single image that gives us a glimpse into what is important to you. Look for something meaningful in your life. It could be an object in your home, a place, etc. Perhaps something from your childhood, an item from your family or a friend, or a place you go that has special meaning to you. And think about how you can make your image interesting, so we'll all want to know the story behind it.

As per the contest rules, do not add a title to your image but I will suggest that after the contest voting closes, maybe we can all come back and add a few short lines giving it's background and why it means so much. It might be kind of nice to get to know something about each other.

The assignment begins November 10th and will end on Tuesday November 30th at midnight. If you would like e-mail reminders of the deadline, please RSVP. You are under no obligation to submit an image if you do RSVP however. Participating in the assignment is FREE!

All images submitted are put into a photo album on meetup and entered into an exhibition at the end of the month. At that point, other members are encouraged to view and comment on the exhibition. Think of it as an online gallery opening.


  • You are only allowed to submit one image.
  • You retain ALL rights to your image.
  • Your image shall not be obscene or contain, pornography, child pornography, or photographs of unclothed person(s); Section 4.2 (e) of the Meetup Terms of Service Agreement
  • Do not "promote" your entry into the contest to attract votes by talking about it on the message boards or the photo thread until AFTER the assignment is over at the end of the month. This does not preclude you from posting your image on any other photo sharing website however.


  • For a photo to be eligible for the exhibition, it must have been taken by you between November 10th and November 30th of 2010. The idea is to shoot with the theme in mind, and not use something you have in your archives. Images taken outside of this time frame will be deleted. Images uploaded after midnight will be deleted.
  • Image must be sized no larger than 1024 pixels on its longest side.
  • EXIF data must be available on your image. Images entered without EXIF attached to the photo will be marked as "EXHIBITION ONLY". (To find out more about EXIF, click here.)
  • Participating in the assignment is FREE. To participate in the contest, please pay the member dues on the welcome page of the meetup.

Any image that is submitted that does not meet the 1) date, 2) size, 3) EXIF data, and 4) Contest Entry Fee criteria will be marked as "EXHIBITION ONLY".

YOU are responsible for checking your EXIF information. To do this, read the Q&A on the FAQ page about "checking your EXIF data".

To Participate
Add your image to the 2010 November Assignment photo album prior to midnight on November 30th. If you do not want to participate in the contest, please add ***EXHIBITION ONLY*** as the title of your image. Otherwise, do NOT add a title to your photo or enter a comment about it! Your image should be strong enough to stand on its own without the assistance of a title or comment.

For More Information
If you have questions about the difference between the assignment and the contest, please read the FAQ page and the Contest Information page.
