The monthly challenge gives members a chance to produce non-competitive images for display on the website. Each month there will be a different challenge, sometimes quite a wide subject and so relatively easy, sometimes a more specific challenge perhaps involving a particular technique or type of photography.
Ideally you should go out to take photos specifically for the challenge, but you may use images from your back catalogue if you have suitable ones.
You can produce traditional 'competition' type images, but because this is non-competitive it also gives you a chance to be more experimental if you prefer. Many members produce interesting and wonderful images, or witty and amusing images, that do not necessarily do well in traditional competitions and this is a chance to showcase these.
At the end of each month all the images will be put up on the website in a gallery for everyone to view.
Members who use the club's WhatsApp can comment on their favourites, or ask authors questions about how they achieved their images. We will also have a 'Zoom' evening to discuss the images for those who would like to.
Web Challenge Rules:
Up to three images per member per month.
Images to be emailed to the webmaster firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on the last day of the month.
Size your images so that the longest side is at least 1800 pixels. (If you don't know how to resize send them anyway and I will do it for you)
You don't have to give your images a title, but if you want them to be titled please use underscores rather than spaces in your title. (e.g. an image called Misty Morning Light would be Misty_Morning_Light)
Authors' names will be displayed alongside the images.
