Caption Contest Information
Hi all, welcome to Photography Corner's weekly Caption Contest.

This is a chance for the comedian in you to emerge, and lets face it everyone enjoys good humour.

It's quite simple, a new photo is posted each week, all you have to do is come up with a funny caption that fits with the photo. At the end of the week a winner will be picked from all of the entries.

But it is a contest there has to be a winner right? Yes there is, picked by me, with a prize none the less, and what is the prize you might ask, well it's a good one: The distinguished honour of submitting next weeks photo. Now how can you not resist to enter a contest like that. :-)

Anything goes, there is one rule however, I know there always has to be rules.

Well it's not really rule (a law). As a photography community we all know the importance of copyright on our photos and how upsetting it is to see others use our photos. So with this being said, all photos that are submitted must be your own, or one from the site provided in the contest intro.

But you have to win to pick the photo and you can't do that unless you enter so what are you waiting for, take a minute look at the photo and post a caption.

Hi Dave I know I have not been with the program in a while ,I have been really busy with moving, my husband is sick and now is it is just going to get worse for a while. We did take out time from seeing so many Dr.s to take a long Vac. out to Az. and Ind. to see friends and family,I did get to take some wonderful photos now I have to edit and submitt and I was offered a job for 2 wall hangings in a nail salon, so I have been coming up with diff. ideas for them I want it elegant, colorful and thier logo has to be in the photo,It would be so much easier if I new how to work with my p.s a little better, I have been practicing and I get frustrated,I do not edit alot, but putting in other objects just does not do it for me. I like it real.So I will try to get in the picture a bit more asap.Colleen-sailfishes.

It would be nice but I just don't know the current status of it as it is right now. Sorry about that.

Re: Caption Contest Information
There just wasn't enough interest anymore... if people want them to start back up, I would want to know that a bunch of people would participate again... ;)

Re: Caption Contest Information
Tim; not everyone with a caption for a photo, has another photo to submit. Nor do all who have a funny photo have captions.
IMHO, the contest format is too restricting. Why not just have a caption this forum, where anyone can post a shot for anyone to caption.
The good ones will live on, but the bad ones will be forgotten, for lack of captons.
I do think that if it is opened for a free for all participation, there will be much more interest.
