January 2013 Photo Contest Poll [View all]

Hello everyone!

I looked over past contest themes and came up with the list below. Hope you find something you can get excited about.

Still Life: B&W or Color.

Close-ups (Macro): Color only. Any subject.

Lost or discarded items: Things people have lost or discarded. Color or B&W

Food: Make us hungry! Color only.

Cemetery/Graveyards: Black & White only.

Busy: busy at work, busy at play; busy streets, busy people (walking, talking, etc..) busy animals, etc.. Busy doing something. Color or B&W.

This poll will run for one week. Votes will determine theme. In the event of a tie, host will have deciding vote.

On January 2nd we will have a theme and at that time I will post the schedule for submissions/prelims/finals. You'll have 13 days from then to get your shot.

January is kind of busy for me, so I'm hoping an early start helps me stay on target.

Thank you!

Solly Mack
