***Thread 1 of the Preliminary July Photo Contest***

Abandoned' is the theme. It would include any inanimate object: places, machinery, vehicles, buildings, tools, etc. Just no abandoned people, animals, or plants. It's a challenging theme, and we have many wonderful, imaginative photos!

The threads will run 72 hours. Please vote and feel free to leave comments. We love to hear what you think!

Right now, we have 15 submissions and there are 3 days till I post the prelims.

I am now opening up the submissions to a second photo, for those who have already submitted one.

For those who haven't submitted any photos, you may put in one or two!

Let's see if we can't get a bit closer to 30!

***Comments Thread for the July Photo Contest: Abandoned***

This thread is for your comments and your questions about the photos entered or the rules, or to yell at me.

DO NOT PUT COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS IN THE SUBMISSION THREAD! Thank you.

***Submission Thread for the July Photo Contest: Abandoned***

Abandoned' is the theme. It would include any inanimate object: places, machinery, vehicles, buildings, tools, etc. Just no abandoned people, animals, or plants.

This thread is for photos only! NO COMMENTS!

Comments go in this thread: https://www.democraticunderground.com/103688968

Now for the rules:

MONTHLY CONTEST:
Only one entry of your own original work per person, unless/until the Volunteer Host opens Submissions for second entries. You need to post your entry in the submission thread started by the Host of a contest. Please be sure to include a "Title" for your photograph in the Subject line of your post. The submission thread is for photo entries only, no comments, no questions. The Host will start a separate thread just for comments and questions.

Once a photo is entered in a contest it is ineligible for any future contest unless the Host specifies otherwise.

The Winner of the contest is the one that comes up with the Theme of the next contest. They can just decide on a theme or may ask for suggestions and then run a poll to pick one of them. Either way the Theme will always be at the discretion of the person who won the contest.

The Volunteer Host has the option of adding other rules to the contest they are hosting. An example would be no Black & White or all Black & White entries.

The Volunteer Host has the option of declaring the submissions being blind (no one knows who entered which photo) or public. Should the Host op for blind submissions it is their responsibility to instruct entrants on how to get their entries to the host. The Volunteer Host may enter a contest as long as the Volunteer Host is not the previous winner and has not selected the theme for the contest which they are hosting.

Submissions will be limited to 30 entries maximum unless the Photography Group votes to change the limits.


CONTEST LICENSE:

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.
The submissions will run until July 10th- or until we have 30 submissions. I may well allow a second photo, and will announce that later on in the allotted time period.


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

***Time Frame for the July Photo Contest: Abandoned***

'Abandoned' is the theme. It would include any inanimate object: places, machinery, vehicles, buildings, tools, etc. Just no abandoned people, animals, or plants.

I will post the thread for submissions on July 5th. It will run till July 10th. Only one photo with title per entry. If we need a second entry, I will post a separate announcement for that.

Once we have 30 entries, I will post the preliminary threads on July 11th, to run 72 hours. The final thread will run right after that, also for 72 hours. And then I will announce the winners on July 18th.

And away we go...................

***Announcing the Theme for the July contest: Abandoned***

sinkingfeeling chose the theme. Here is what he said about it:

I would like to use 'Abandoned' as a theme. It would include any inanimate object: places, machinery, vehicles, buildings, tools, etc. Just no abandoned people, animals, or plants.

For example: this is a photo from the Pripyat, Ukraine amusement park near Chernobyl.




Please start thinking about this, and planning or shooting something that works with this theme! I will post the schedule for the contest tomorrow, or maybe later today.

I will start submissions after the Fourth of July has passed.
