B&W weekly challenge

In a previous forum theme the idea of this group creating a B&W challenge, similar to the Sunday and Monday night challeners was raised.

Strobe suggested "a weekly mono challenge. You nominate a subject on Friday, everyone has a week to compose an image and we all upload the image the following Friday. (you cannot upload before the Friday and only one upload per person). The reason I suggest a week is that it will give everyone time over the weekend to work on images and those who would like to submit an image from film have the week to get it developed."

I really like the idea of this and wonder how many others would be interested is a weekly B&W challenge and what night of the week would be best to start and end it?

Friday's are a nightmare for me working fridays in main job and bar job, thursday and tuesday are generally good for me Smile

Have tried both the SNC and MNC, and will continue to do so, just as willing to give the B&W a try, a least a week gives more time to reboot the inspirational grey cells. I am assuming as it is spread over one week it will be little more of a serious project as opposed to the 'fun' MNC and SNC? Any day is OK with me, having said that if it is to be

the start date needs to be nearer the weekend - Thursday evening for the start, that gives Friday to get the cogs going Sat/Sun out and about Mon/Tues/Wed processing days. Smile

I’ve been thinking about the logistic behind running a weekly challenge, I’ve looked at the Sunday and Monday challenge and stolen much of how they run their challenges. This was about the best I could come up with quickly, if anyone can think of a easier way of working the challenge or anything that’s been missed feel free to change/update.

This week’s theme to be announced Thursday 8pm (ish)

• The photo must be taken and processed between Thursday 8pm and upload the following by 8pm on Wednesday.

• Only one uploads per member

• All uploads must be B&W

• When uploading your entry please including B&W challenge in the description

• The challenge is just for fun.

• The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge.

• The winner gets to create, run, and judge the challenge the following week.

• Have Fun

I know almost nothing about creating decent black and white shots so I shall be watching with interest.
You never know, I might even take part. Either way, I'm sure I shall learn something.
