    I've noticed in the photo contests that you can generally enter in any photo you've taken regardless of when. Is there any reason for this vs limiting the photo to the month of the contest? I would gather it be a way to nudge folks to go out and take more pictures =)

    I think it should be a current photo, too. But I don't have a vast back-catalog of great photos to draw from. But isn't the point to create new ones?

    Hi Guys,

    The photo can be taken at any time.... but it MUST be taken with a ยต43!

    Rules:
    The photo may have been taken at any time, not necessarily during the month of the contest.


    It would be great if folks went out and made some images just for a contest... but not essential..

    As we go forward you'll find some contest that will induce people to make an image to suit the contest particulars.

    Cheers, Alan

    I should have noted I understood it had to be taken w/ m43 =)

    Just general commenting and seeing what the thought process was out there. Really need to start entering them myself, haha

    Point taken. As Alan said, we'll have some contests asking for a current photo as well.
