****Submission Thread for the Summer Photo Contest is now open!****

This is the official thread for the posting of your amazing photographs that depict how you see Summer. The only limit is your imagination!

Is summer about weather, or picnics, or other activities in the great outdoors? YES. Also, any holidays that happen in the summer. As I said, your imagination is given free play here.

I'll leave it open for about a week, depending on the numbers of entries. It would be amazing to get 30 original photos! If we need to allow a second entry, I will post a separate thread to announce that.

Important bits from the RULES! There will be no extra rules on the Seasonal Contest beyond keeping your entry no larger than 1024 pixels in its longest dimension and under 675K in file size and limit photo editing to a reasonable amount. We would prefer your photo look like a photograph instead of a digital design. If you arenít sure, ask the group in a separate thread. Youíll get plenty of feedback to specific questions. If you need help posting a photograph or with image sizing, just ask. You can find the rest of the rules for the competition here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/103673624 if you need further clarification.

Here's the link to the Comments thread: https://www.democraticunderground.com/103678573

Please include a title in your submission!


An entrant to this contest, by submitting a photograph, is giving permission for that photograph to be copied to Demopedia or to a linked Gallery and included in a DU Calendar that will display the photographs entered for this contest for the purpose of publicizing future contests and/or commemorating current and past contests. The entrant retains all other rights to the photograph being submitted. Neither Demopedia and/or a linked Gallery may use any photograph submitted for any purpose other than to display the photograph being submitted by the entrant, and neither gains any real or implied ownership rights to the photograph.

Now, let's see what you've got!

It's September...........and that means The Summer Contest!

So what meaning does Summer hold for you?

Is it a time for travel, or family bbq's, or swimming, or.........whatever?

Whatever summer means to you, show us through your photos.

I will post the Submission thread, along with the Comment thread, around September 10th. This should give you enough time to take new photos or to comb your archives for photos from yesteryear.

The contest threads will come later, to be scheduled.
