RULES:

For the sake of the servers, we ask that the length of the photo on the longest side be no more than 1200 pixels - this can be set when uploading images to picture hosting websites.

The contest ends at 23.59 UK time on October 30th, and voting opens from then until 23.59 on November 5th.

Only entrants may vote, and must submit their top 5 choices to me along with a topic idea for next month - winner's choice carries - and NOT to one of the other mods - they will not oversee the competition unless I am unavailable for any reason.

Only one photo is permitted per member, and may be changed at any point until the deadline. The photo has to have been taken by the member posting it.

Members may not vote for themselves, and since not voting gives you a higher chance of winning, it will be penalised by a deduction of 15 points [points are allocated as 15 for each first-placed vote, 10 for 2nd, 6 for 3rd, 3 for 4th and 1 for 5th] to redress the balance, unless for any reason the member in question is unavailable during voting, in which case alternative arrangements should be made in advance.

5 points are also on offer to the member who contributes the most creative interpretation of the subject matter, at my discretion where appropriate.

Please remember indecent images are subject to the same rules in this thread as the rest of the forum.

All that remains is for me to announce the title. Therefore the October 2014 Planet-F1 Forum photo competition title is:

FAMILY

Wait, what, it's only 11 minutes into October and September is already marked and judged and scored? That's some super efficient organisation there...

Most of us couldn't hold a camera as a baby, and the rules do say entrants have to have taken the photo they entered ;)

Memories of Happy

October is a sad month for me, as I lost my Mum four years ago quite suddenly, which is one of the reasons I picked Family as this month's topic.
As such this photo, which I did actually take as a little kid :-) seems pretty apt for this.

(Yes it's from a time where photos were taken with film!)

I've never submitted any photos for these threads, but something I have a lot of is cute photos (in my opinion obviously!):
"A load of hopefully cute photos for jimbox01 on the family theme" (click to show)


And my entry - meeting your new sister:

Image
(it was my first digital camera that wasn't a phone that I bought especially for my daughter's birth and didn't know the date came up until after I viewed them all! D'oh!)

I did have a 5 generation photo somewhere with my ex's great grandmother who sadly passed away a few days ago in her late nineties, but couldn't find it on any memory sticks anywhere.

Glad to oblige! But it's gonna be hard to out-cute Asphalt's photo :)
