OMIGOD, we have a problem--two photos too many!

I will remove my second photo.

And one of the posters needs to remove a photo too.

I hate to single anyone out, but perhaps it's fair to ask one of the late arrivals to remove a photo too.

Either Keth or Dark n Stormy Knight needs to remove a photo.

What an amazing problem to have! So many times we've opened the polls with fewer than 30 photos. Not this time!

I hope to get the polls up later this morning (Pacific Daylight Time). At least by noon.

***All right! We have 16 glorious winter photos as of today!***

I would really like to see more!

Therefore, I am now opening the Winter Contest for a second submission photo. Anyone who hasn't submitted yet can enter TWO photos!

We have the weekend to get our numbers up. Let's see if we can get a bit closer.

I will close Submissions on Monday, as I said before.

Omigod, we had such a fantastic rush of great entries on Monday!

And now it's fallen away.......but we need more!

I am hoping that everyone who's lurking will break into their archives and post the photos of their vision of Winter.

Let's Go!

***Submission Thread for the Winter Photo Contest***

The Winter Contest has the theme of whatever you love about this season. It can be holidays, food, sports and other winter stuff or whatever strikes your fancy.

This thread is for photos only! NO COMMENTS. Those go here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/103684452


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 March 15 - 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!
