Hi folks,

This is the entry thread for the August Photo Contest. The theme, as chosen by last month's winner AndyS, is as follows:

"The unseen world. The small things we walk past every day; the beauty in the bouquets in the floral department at the grocery store, the zen of stones in a garden, that lone green sprout in the compost or that small creature under your feet. Not necessarily macro but that's not excluded. Butterflies and birds reach out and grab our attention but I'm encouraging all of us to take note of the more subtle compositions around us. As for post processing, sure if it makes the image more appealing or enhances the connection between the subject and viewer. Most of all HAVE FUN with it."

Here is the tentative timeline:

August 10th: Contest entries start, for a period of one week, unless we get thirty entries sooner.

August 17th: The semi-finals start, for a period of three days.

August 21st: Finals thread, for a period of three days.

August 24th: Announcement of the winners.


The Volunteer Host is allowed to enter the Contest.

Please keep 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.

Once a photo is entered in a contest it is ineligible for any future contest unless the Host specifies otherwise.
Please, no comments or questions in this thread! Those throw off the numbering and make my job a lot more difficult. I will post a thread for questions and comments shortly after I post this Submissions thread! If you decide for any reason to change the photo you've already entered, please click on the "edit" button before you remove your photo. Then, simply put the link to your new photo into that same space. Thank You!

Something new this month:

Iíd like to try something new this month. Normally, the comments thread gets the usual posts about ďIím inĒ or ďGreat pics Peggy,Ē (who always has great pics). Those are great, but I would also like to encourage folks to maybe add a little bit about your photo if you like. You could describe how or where the photo was taken, and the nature of any photo-processing that you performed. If the photo is straight out of the camera, thatís great. If you worked on the photo for an hour straight, thatís great too. This is strictly voluntary! There may be a question about anonymity, however anyone can find the identity of the photographer by checking the original thread anyway. Also, most DU members who vote arenít members of our forum and probably never see the comments thread. Letís try this for a month and see if it works .


An entrant to this contest (original work), 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.

Have fun!

Grumpy Old Guy
