Monday Night One-Hour Challenge, Sept. 3, 2007

Hi All!

On Monday at 8.00 p.m. sharp the latest Monday Night Challenge will take place.

What's a one Hour Challenge?
The one hour challenge is a fun competition to get your creative juices flowing and has been running since March 2004 following an idea introduced by 'Warb' and 'Syneasthesia.'

The idea is you are given a subject/theme/brief to shoot at 8.00 pm on Monday evening and you have 60 mins to complete the task and upload a photo. The theme is announced in the forums and in the gallery and photos are uploaded in the modifications area of the photo that is used to announce the challenge.

What are the rules of the challenge?
1. The photo must be taken, processed and upload before 9:00pm (one hour).
2. The challenge is started in the main gallery and the gallery description box states what the challenge is. You enter the challenge by uploading your picture as a 'modification' to the challenge announcement.
3. Any submission that appears to be taken before the competition started will be disqualified.
4. Any submission posted after the 'Time's Up!' image is uploaded will also be disqualified.
5. It's just for fun and a challange and details of any prizes will be announced along with the challenge.
6. The person who uploads the challenge is the judge for that week (that's me... only certain bribes will be accepted).
7. The first place winner gets to create, run, and judge the challenge next week.
8. As this uses the modifications feature, the winner needs to be an e2 member but if not, another member may step in and upload a challenge for you.
9. If the winner is on holiday the following week he/she can select another member to upload and take care of the challenge.

So... Here's this week's theme!
As usual, you'll have an hour to think up, shoot, produce and post an image that best represents the challenge theme for Monday night. And as a special preview, that theme is... (oops, edited for content).

So there it is. I hope you enjoy the theme! Smile (C'mon you didn't think I really would, did you?)

Challenge Prizes!
Information regarding prizes will be posted Monday along with a reminder beforehand that the challenge will take place.

If anyone has a question, feel free to post it here in this forum. I'm sure someone will be able to help, and of course I'll do my best to answer a query.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you Monday night at 8.00 p.m.

Cheers all, Martin

(p.s. Just kidding about the bribes)

It's almost tomorrow night! I hope you all have your creative juices going. Sounds like 'jaspernina' has something going by the subject matter of his new forum Smile

See you all tomorrow.

Regarding prizes for tomorrow... this is from last week's thread...

Thanks for the heads up on Helena's post Glynn.

The prizes will be the same options until Tricia returns from the sunshine; we plan to have other options then, potentially including some tripod heads, brolly/lampholders, brollies, other reflectors/diffusers, low-level stands, daylight (5400K) Compact fluorescent bulbs, tripod and lighting stand kit bags....suffice to say, there will be lots of options over the coming weeks and months.

Regards all.

Confirmation this morning from David is that the prizes are the same as last week.

So not only will the winner get a free month's E2 status, but prizes will be awarded to the top three winners as judged.

Very nice indeed!

Only a couple of hours to go...

Hopefully domestic disasters, nagging partners, noisy kids and other distractions can be put at bay. If the mother in law is over, we'll see you next week! Smile

I thought only the winner got a prize from photoskill? If this is not the case, can I still get one as second-place winner last week - coz I quite liked the grey target/reflector panel? Wink

fairy nuff - that's what I thought, but it's always good to get clarification

(EDIT: On the other hand, IF I win this week, you now know what I want! Wink)

Oops sorry all. That's my wrong assumption... this whole thing is still pretty loose. Sorry Dave and thanks for clarification!
