    After thinking about a topic for this challenge I decided to go with a previously posted image on Mu-43 that has not won anything yet. I feel that since there have been so many amazing photos previously posted, they all need another shot to take a win!

    Here are a few of my examples (not that we really need them for this theme).

    Have fun! Winner shall be announced on or shortly after Jan 21.

    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 the 72-hr Blue Ribbon Challenge.

    EDIT: Just for clarification, are the submissions limited to pictures already posted on previous competition (salon, 72 hrs, etc) or any pictures posted on mu-43 on any of the 'sharing' threads?

    Good question !!

    I had just assumed it was anything "previously posted" :eek:

    Happy to withdraw mine if it only applies to previous competition entries.

    Same here. I picked my submissions from pictures I've posted on the Real Street Thread, but not in any of the previous compo's. I thought if it's limited to only pictures enrolled in previous competition, then it may be too limiting (both the eligible pictures and more importantly the participants).

    Cheers

    PS: I will edit my submission as well if needed.

    Thanks for raising this question. I have refrained from posting anything wanting to ask this question myself, but didn't get around to doing it yet...

    Any pictures posted on Mu-43 as long as they haven't won anything. I just wanted people to go back and look at great old images!
