Re: Contest Corner Challenge #110: New Beginnings

Marram,
As a slide film only shooter, it is not possible for me to shoot, have my film processed, scanned and submitted in the time frame necessary to be eligble for the contest.
Unfortunately the days of 3-hour turnaround on E-6 processing are long gone, and usually the best service I get is 2-1/2 to 3 weeks.
I assume that the rationale for the time-frame is to promote the taking of new images by encouraging people to get out and shoot.
I'm out virtually every weekend, and am always getting back new images. however, my freshest pictures are jus t not quite as "fresh" as the rules dictate.
For a couple of years I was granted an exemption from the time period rule at another site (Nikoncafe) in order to post photos in the Collective Shoot forum, a themed one-week contest that did not include prizes.
However this was recently revoked when to my utter astonishment some members complained, and so I am now unable to participate in the activity.
I am not prepared to be deceitful or cheat to enter the contests here, but wonder if in the spirit of inclusion, rather than one of exclusion a time exemption could be granted to the four of us left in the world still only shooting 35mm slide film?
I will of course respect and abide by any decision you make.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #110: New Beginnings

Actually Robert, this particular contest has a posting period of over a month.
That being said, I myself would not have a problem with an older submission from film shooters being submitted.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #110: New Beginnings

As a site moderator I don't think I would have a problem with it as long it was shot within say 3-4 months of a particular contest. Keep in mind that the idea for the contests restrictions are to have people out shooting new things based on the criteria for any particular contest rather than searching their vast archives for something that fits a particular theme.

As a citizen. I'm not a moderator on this site.
Clark makes a good point. As long as the photo is recent.
Just keep in mind that I have no real say anyway. Just expressing an opinion.

Re: Contest Corner Challenge #110: New Beginnings

How do you enter? I dont see instructions above or what the guidelines are.

We just had a baby girl *kid #2 for us* so I got a few "new beginnings" pictures.

edit > nevermind, its in your signature.
