    Post Weekly Challenge: Rules and Guidelines

    I'm going to start a weekly photo challenge here on Nikonites. The goal of the challenge will be to keep you motivated to use your camera often, getting you out there in the field and taking photographs. Here's how it's going to work:

    How the Challenge Works
    1. Each challenge will run for 1 (one) week, beginning on Sunday and ending at midnight (eastern daylight time) on the following Sunday.
    2. Each week will have it's own thread. The title of each thread will be titled as follows:
      Weekly Challenge [dates]: [subject]
    3. A winner will then be chosen by a panel of judges with the result announced in a separate thread on the following Sunday.
    4. Because scores are composites of a panel and the post "likes", Judges are allowed to participate.

    The Rules
    1. Photos must be posted to the thread in order to be considered for the challenge.
    2. Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread and taken by you! Because not all EXIF data can be verified, we will use the honor system here.
    3. Challenges will be judged solely by the panel. Individual voting will be incorporated into the final selection of the winning photo.
    4. Only one photo entry per member, for each challenge.

    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Challenge, unless specifically noted by the site administrator. This is a member-run contest, and the purpose of the Weekly Challenge is to encourage member participation on the forums and to keep you taking pictures!

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited/straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.

    in plain english, does it mean a picture will be pre-submitted to you and everyone submits a picture to challenge the pre-submitted one ?

    Yes.

    For the sake of an example, let's say Jack won the challenge. I will contact Jack via PM to let him know. Jack will have a few days to think up a new challenge and take a sample photo. Jack will then contact me via PM with the topic of the new challenge, along with his sample photo. A new challenge thread will be posted.

    At the end of that week, Jack will decide who the winner is. He will let me know his decision, and I will contact them via PM. The process starts all over again.

    Are the photos required for the contest necessarily be new? Can a previous winner join the contest again?
    Thanks and more power Nikonites!

    YES. Please review rule #4:
    Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread and taken by you!

    That's the point of the Weekly Challenge, to get you out there taking pictures on a regular basis.

    YES. Absolutely! The only person who can't participate in a challenge is the person who issued it (the previous week's winner). You can win multiple contests!

    2. Photos should also be uploaded to the Weekly Challenge Gallery so that EXIF data can be verified.
    1. I just do what Step1 says and I don't know where I can put the same picture mentioned on step 2. That link is for a gallery with other dates... Can you help me? Thanks
