*****Repetitions, February theme *****- Photo Contest --this thread for Comments only --

Here is the place to ask questions or comment on the submissions for the February contest.

The Submissions thread is here: 


*****Repetitions *****- Photo Contest February--this thread for Submissions, not comments, only --

Our theme for the February PHOTO Contest is:
By now you know how easy it is to see things repeat in your environment. You've been encouraged to either photograph it, or to look through your archives and find a favorite.
Your imagination rules.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with and as always will enjoy the diversity.
For now there is one entry per person, should I decide to open the contest to a second entry I will make an announcement about that.

The size should be no larger than 1024 pixels in its longest side. Resizing works for me with https://resizeimage.net/
If need be ask me for help and I’ll change the size for you. Also, please give your photo a title.

SUBMISSIONS ONLY in this thread. For any of your comments on the photos in the submission thread go here:
COMMENTS THREAD about “Repetitions”

The winner of this contest will be rewarded by getting to choose the theme for April. or run a poll and let us choose, or ask for help and get suggestions. It’s easy. No other responsibilities.
The choice is to be for April when Soph0571 will host the contest because in March a la izquierda will be running the Winter Seasonal Contest. So the winner of February will get to set the theme for April’s contest, to be communicated to Soph0571. Since the February winner will have decided the theme according to our new rules, that winner will not be able to enter the April contest.

Submissions are now open and I will hold them open until Wednesday the 19th of February
Preliminaries will open and run from the 20th through the 23rd
Finals will be the 24th though the 27th then I'll announce the winner and we celebrate

Here are the contest rules: https://www.democraticunderground.com/103673624


An entrant to this contest, by submitting a photograph, is giving permission for that photograph to be copied to Demopedia or to a linked Gallery and included in a DU Calendar that will display the photographs entered for this contest for the purpose of publicizing future contests and/or commemorating current and past contests. The entrant retains all other rights to the photograph being submitted. Neither Demopedia and/or a linked Gallery may use any photograph submitted for any purpose other than to display the photograph being submitted by the entrant, and neither gains any real or implied ownership rights to the photograph.
It is Tuesday afternoon, Feb 18th, and the contest is filled up Will start the submission thread Thursday in the morning. Thank you all so much for entering, and I wish you all well in the contest. Just think - no fear of having to host next month. It's so freeing, isn't it?" to mnhtnbb to did all the thinking and then the hard work to make the changes in our contests. I think this will work so much better.

AG Barr to demonstrates the level of his corruption - plus we already know it.

And to illustrate a bit of the copy in the assessment of Barr a two year old photo I took of my TV screen

Black History Month: Do we know about this man? If not, let's learn.

Robert Smalls

Do yourself a favor. Read the details of the life of this man and give honor to his memory, courage and statesmanship.


Stopped at the side of the road and pulled out my cellphone camera...

on the way home from errands. We've had quite a bit of rain, and are soaked.

Getting the green light! Tomorrow we start the entries. "Repetitions" Theme for February

This is the end of my hyping the contest that starts tomorrow. "REPETITIONS" is the theme. I've not run out of examples since it's so easy a theme if we just look around. As a matter of fact I can't decide on what my entry might be, with the new rules I am allowed to enter a photo myself.
We now no longer need to think about that should we win we need to run the next month's contest. We have done away with that rule and have volunteers on the ready for that. So if ever you thought to enter a photograph but were hindered by not knowing or not wanting to host, this is a thing of the past. So, all you who might have wanted to submit a photo, the time is now.

I feel by telling you about it every day for well over a week, that by now all of you are sufficiently motivated. So get your photo ready, and wait for the submission thread tomorrow. You have been good sports to read the same thing every day, I hope to have made an impact and that all of you now know what's up. So, enjoy the green light photo along with being green lighted yourself. It will be showtime.

Next to the last reminder, and photo. "Repetition" contest starts on Wednesday

You've been patient with me bugging you about the upcoming contest for February. "REPETITIONS"
As this photo proves it can be found even where you least think about it. By now surely you know that if you win you don't have to host the next contest any more. We changed the rules and have pre-determined volunteer hosts. So by now also you might have found a photograph to enter. New entrants and a great variety of photographs from you guys will be my reward for these efforts to rally you and tell you about the changes
