In an effort to continue where Kordelia's "Wild Hair" contests left off, I would like to introduce to you the first official edition of the NeoCodex Photographica Contest.
I am sure that you can guess what the overarching theme of this contest is:
On the first Monday of each month, a theme will be given, and a deadline set.
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, will be to take a photograph (or choose one from your own back catalogue) that satisfies the theme as best you can manage.
There will be two winners each month, one selected by a small panel of judges based on my own criteria, and another based on a public vote. There will be no runners up, and one person may win both prizes.
Prizes will include a shiny award, and potentially donations from community-minded members.
Each month's winners will then help judge the next round, and be ineligible to win (although they may enter for fun!).
This month's theme:
(Bonus: incorporate a springtime motif)
This month's deadline:
Wednesday the 14th of May (Midnight Pacific Time)
This month's examples:
All work must be your own. Duh.
Post-processing must be minimal, unless otherwise noted.
Submissions should be PMed to me.
