    Edit : 8/27/2015 00:00 [12AM] GMT - Challenge entries are now closed.


    Sports, motor sport, any sport in action. People/Children at play. Wildlife, insects in action, crawling snail :biggrin:. Falling leaf, waterfalls. Machines, planes, boats, autos, motorbikes and etc in action/motion, and etc… Someone/thing is in action.

    In accordance with rule #3, I'd appreciate if you would note the date of your photo. I don't plan to dig through exif data. It's the honor system here. Thanks in advance.

    Please post a single image, represents the theme. The deadline to post entries to this challenge will be August 27th at 00:00 [12 AM] GMT (Greenwich Mean Time.)

    After that, voting will remain opened through August 28th at 00:00 [12 AM] GMT. Votes will be tallied, then the winner will be announced. The next challenge should be posted by the winner soon after.

    Rules:

    1. A single "theme" will be provided for each challenge. These can specify a particular subject (e.g. "trees", "vehicles", "animals", "water"), a shooting/post processing method ("black and white", "shot in M-mode (manual)", "blur", "multiple exposure") or it can be more ephemeral ("happy", "orange", "renewal", "symmetry"). Note: since our audience is global, themes that reference a particular season of the year should be avoided.
    2. Each challenge will run for a period of two weeks. This should give everyone that wishes to participate a chance to get out and exercise his/her vision.
    3. Since the intent of this challenge is to get people out and shooting, entries should be shot during the time-frame of the challenge (i.e. no searching through back catalogs for images that match the theme.
    4. Since this is a Micro Four Thirds forum, entries should be shot with a Micro Four Thirds camera.
    5. Each participant must choose a single image to share in a post on the thread.
    6. A winner will be declared at the end of each challenge based on "votes" received from forum participants. A "like" (thumbs-up) will count as one vote and a "winner" (medal) will count as two votes. Voting is open to anyone (not just participants) and voters may cast as many or as few votes as they wish. Ties will be broken based on the larger number of "winner" votes, beyond that, any ties will be broken by the member who chose the theme (see below).
    7. The winner will choose the theme and post the subsequent challenge in a new thread. If the winner fails to post anew challenge within five days, the responsibility passes to the runner-up. At the end of the challenge the winner of the previous challenge should total the votes and announce the winner and the runners-up.

    Not the best shot, but shooting m4/3's at night with fields sports is - as it turns out - not the easiest photo task, lol. Taken with Em1, Friday 21st August

    I am not certain, but I don't think this one ever appeared on the "featured threads" on the front page of the site? That may have reduced the numbers.

    This is the first one I have not entered, nothing to do with the the topic, I just happened not to have time for photography.

    I had the same question when I realized this one is over already. It was an excellent topic although a little more difficult to just go out and shoot than some others. Maybe it's the late August timing/vacation/Labour Day/back-to-school activity--at least for those of us in North America. Hopefully participation will get back on track...
