Hello Everyone~ Could not believe I won the last challenge - but it means I get to pick the topic for this one! For the challenge this time I thought I'd go with something light-hearted and joyful, and I thought - what better than "smiles"! This is a simple challenge topic and I am looking forward to seeing some really creative shots, but I hope all the images bring a hearty grin to everyone's faces . I guess then I'll end the competition in 72 hours from now - which is Saturday the 20th of November, at 10:00pm AEST (GMT +10). And here's a bonus shot - my Grandma - Love her dearly. <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/patchesofcolour/8096563340/" title="Grandma by patchesofcolour, on Flickr"> View attachment 236732 "800" height="600" alt="Grandma"></a> 72 Hour Challenge Rules As the title suggests, each challenge lasts for 72-Hours. Everyone gets to submit 2 photos in line with the chosen theme. The winner of the previous challenge gets to choose the new theme (topics can be anything under the sun) and serves as the judge for his/her 72-hour challenge. For obvious purposes, the judge is disqualified from participating in his/her own 72-hour challenge. Instead, he/she should post up to 2 photos as examples to start out the challenge. Should the winner not be able to commit to being the next judge, the responsibility is passed on to the runner-up. At the end of the 72-hours (we don't have to be strict about 72-hours, especially with time differences depending on where you are on the globe), the judge will name a blue ribbon winner, a runner-up, and 1 honorable mention. As we all know, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We may not all agree with the chosen winners; the judge is encouraged (but not required) to state what criteria he used to decide on a winner. To make sure we don't break any Mu43 rules/regulations, by participating in this thread you are allowing the judge to repost your image for the sole purpose of announcing the winners for "72hrs Challenge: Smiles."
