Mission Statement -------------------- This community is designed to help us grow as artists through experimentation outside our normal subject matter and good old fashioned practice.
The Procedure Every two weeks, a new theme or instruction will be posted. Entries are posted to the journal throughout the two week period. At the end of this time, a poll will be made. The winner will then pick the new theme.
Each contest entry will be headed by "CONTEST ENTRY - [THEME]" and all submissions to the contest will be posted in that thread. Critiques and comments are also welcome in the thread. This will ensure that we don't have a thousand posts/pictures to sort through, not knowing which are contest submissions and which aren't.
Rules and Posting Guidelines * Non-themed photos can be freely posted between and during contests to recieve feedback. Please clearly state that your image is NOT an entry, however.
* To accomodate underaged, budding photographers, adult images (aka, those involving full or partial nudity) must be posted under a cut with a clear warning.
* Both traditional and digital photography is welcome.
* It's not hard to be polite. Critique is allowed and encouraged, but targeting an individual, mocking a piece because you 'just don't like it' for ambiguous reasons, and just being an ass are all strictly prohibited.
* On the other side of the coin- this community IS a critique community. Posters need to show some spine and not melt when someone gives C&C. ---------------
