It's a few days starting late, but this season Eyes on Final Fantasy will be hosting an Autumn Photography contest!

Rules are super easy.


Submissions must consist of 3-5 photos in a set.
You may submit more than one set.
Sets can be themed or the photos can be completely random (as long as they are all fall-related in an obvious manner).
You have until November 30th to get your submissions in. (Autumn technically ends December 20th, but December is more Christmas-y and I don't want to impose on that.) Over two months should be plenty long to submit the required photos.
An undisclosed prize will be issued to the winner!
Post in this thread to sign up.

Get clicking, shutterbugs! Even if you aren't an avid photographer, take a crack at it. You might surprise yourself!

Contestants:
Calliope
Pete for President

I'm interested. Life is going to be super busy for me throughout Autumn, but I'll try to put something together.

Where I'm at it's becoming spring :0 Can I use previously taken photo's? (not that you guys would know but I like to play by the rules you know I'm a good kid!) :greenie:

Okay!

Yes, Pete! My apologies, I didn't consider you folks in the southern hemisphere, but of course you can join with previous photos.

Northern hemisphere folks should stick to new photos, please!

If you had enough participants, you could maybe have a Spring and Autumn division, so that everyone is encouraged to take new photos.

I would definitely be open to that. Let's say we'll open up a spring division if we get three contestants from the southern hemisphere to join.

Cool! I spent half of yesterday looking at photos I'd taken, taking inventory of my film, and experimenting.

...and then I ruined a roll of film so I don't think any of those pictures stand a chance of turning out. I'm so mad!

Ohh dude, that sucks so badly. It's been years since I've ruined a roll of film, but it's so gutting when that happens D:

I'm still learning how to use film, so I'll chalk it up to stupidity and learn from the experience. But still! Ugh.

Time to try another roll!

I used to want to try doing film photography. My mom has a film SLR camera that I would probably borrow, but I would also want to experiment with developing the pictures myself and such. Shame I never took the opportunity at college when I had all of that stuff at my disposal.

Hopefully I can end up going on a photo adventure with some friends once the leaves start turning here and such. There are some cool places to do photography on my old campus.

Is someone starting this again? Good deal. :kakapo:

It eventually died for me, so maybe someone more popular can get people interested in participating again.

I didn't mean to rob your contest from you, sharky! I was just inspired by the season is all :jess: You can keep on with your regular contest if you like, I was just planning on doing this as a one-time thing.

No, no. That wasn't snarky (just sharky).

Mine kinda died out from lack of participants. If this is popular enough, maybe I'll start mine up again. Good luck!

I kinda completely let this slip. Did anyone else have submissions?
