A Phoenix Burning

Get Thinking…

I was going to wait until September to get started, however the deadline for this International Contest is October 31st and I wanted to give you all enough time.  Okay, so, yes the competition is fierce.  And I know many of you are thinking, “No WAY can I enter this contest.”  However, I would encourage you all to take a look at some of your best work…especially the people shots you have already taken.  I believe some of the work I’ve seen within our little community could indeed compete quite honorably.  So, what if you were actually working toward “the shot?”  Imagine what you could do!!  And what the heck…if you’re going to go for it, you might as well GO FOR IT!  What have any of us got to lose?  On the other hand, what have we got to gain?  The quest for inspiration begins.

I challenge each of you to enter just one photo in one category…People, Landscapes, or Animals.  And I also encourage you to create a new photograph specifically for entering this contest.  No oldies-but-goodies allowed (unless you want to enter more than one photo.)  The deadline is October 31st and all the rules are available here.  Link to your entries here in the comments.  I will add a page over there————–> to keep this visible.  Good luck and happy growing!

Note:  There is a $.12 entry fee for each photo received before October 15th, and then it jumps to $10.00 afterwards.  So let’s all shoot (no pun intended) for that October 15th date.  I hate spending money for this sort of thing and I’m sure I’m not alone…12 cents I can handle.


Scratch that idea.  Thanks Karma for pointing out my error. Crappy Crap.  Oh, well.  Screw inspiration.  I’m selling my bloody camera.   Who’s with me?

    I dunno KD, kinda looks like there is a 12 DOLLAR per photo entry fee. I don’t think its 12 cents. 😦

    Yeah, I just went and read the rules – $12 per photo by the 15th and an additional $10 (for a total of $22 per photo) after the 15th. And Shrewbie-Doo – looks like the contest is void in NJ!

    Awwwww….I’m sorry. Didn’t mean to rain on your parade! Maybe we should have some sort of photo challenge here on your site?

      Honestly, I just can’t think about it at the moment. I’ll get back to it when I have a minute. 🙂
