BASIC CONTEST/CHALLENGE RULES:
Only one entry per person. Please be sure to include a "Title" for your photograph in the Subject line of your entry. Only the first thirty (30) valid submissions received will be accepted.

Please keep your photograph entry no larger than 800 pixels in its longest dimension and under 250K in file size, unless otherwise designated by contest host. If you need help posting a photograph or with image sizing just ask.

Please do not use frames, except for a 1 or 2 pixel black frame to define white backgrounds.

Post-processing is permitted in the same tradition as processing techniques of print photography.

The contest host may alter the written rules at the beginning of their contest, and is the final arbiter of the rules and any issues that may arise.

The contest host may not enter their own photo contest, but may choose the theme in any manner they decide.

For monthly contests, the winner agrees to host the next contest (or recruit someone else to host the contest).

Be sure to read the following before you enter a photograph:


CONTEST LICENSE

An entrant to this contest, by submitting a photograph, is giving permission for that photograph to be copied to Demopedia and/or to a linked Gallery 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.

An entrant can disclaim this Contest License and retain all rights to the photograph. If an entrant wishes to disclaim the Contest License they must include the following statement in the post containing their photograph; "I disclaim the Contest License, and reserve all rights to my photograph" Any photograph submitted by an entrant with this disclaimer statement will not be copied and displayed in Demopedia and/or any linked Gallery.

The Theme for December Will be "Reflections"

I will post a submission thread about December 12th. Use this time to go out and shoot or rumage through your images to find "that shot."

Submissions should show some kind of reflection. Use of Photoshop or other computer image manipulation is encouraged. All the general rules for past competitions will apply. Below is an example reflection image just to get you thinking.

** Poll for December Contest Theme** PLEASE VOTE TO SELECT THE NEXT CONTEST THEME!

Here are a few of the ideas for the December photo contest. I've pinned it until the poll time period is expired. It would be nice to get more votes on the topics.

This poll will run for 72 hours. These ideas came from DPReview.com a great resource for photographers.

I'll post the submission thread after the Poll is closed.

Thanks!

This Week's Chuck Lorrie Vanity Card Says it All

Chuck Lorrie, producer Two & a Half Men, and The Big Bang Theory hit a home run tonight. The Vanity Card shown with the shows indicates he did not want to deal with the CBS censors, so we are told to look in the internet and here is what he wrote:

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #397
CENSORED BY ME

What does it say about us when we are simultaneously pro-life and pro AK-47's? What does it say about us when God's will would allow a rapist to ask for shared custody and child support payments? What does it say about us when a black guy's in charge and we say things like "it's time to take America back"? What does it say about us when we think the institution of marriage is threatened by gay people who love each other, but not by idiotic game shows like "The Bachelor"? What does it say about us when we export democracy with Hellfire missiles, then restrict the right to vote here? What does it say about us when we build nuclear submarines to defend against exploding vests? What does it say about us when we think a guy who doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, keeps his money offshore, stubs his toe and says "H-E-double hockey sticks" and wears magical underwear can feel our pain? What does it say about us when we demand less government and more FEMA? What does it say about us when we completely forgot the colossal shit storm we were in four years ago?

The answer, my friends, is not blowing in the wind.

The answer is, "We are fucking crazy."
