Its been brought up that it might be interesting to devote the occasional picture of the week contest to a theme. Not every week or even every other week, more like once a month.
I'm envisioning announcing a theme 3-4 weeks ahead and then accepting entries around that theme. (We could also publish a full list of themes far in advance.) Pictures wouldn't need to have been created in that time, but it gives people enough time to create the picture if they like. We might devote one contest a month?
What does the community think? Is this something we should pursue?
For example - I'm thinking of possible themes like
There's many, many ways to interpret these and they're not confined to a single 'type' of photography.
Even a color like 'White' can be interpreted many, many ways. Maybe its a high key portrait, maybe its a dark scene with a single thing that's white in the scene to highlight, or maybe its a wedding cake - the possibilities are endless.
'Now' could cover fireworks, the moment of a kiss, a flower just opening, or a fresh coat of paint just laid on. There's a variety of options.
How these get decided can be discussed if the concept moves forward.
I'll be leaving this open till next Monday, at which time we can assume anybody who wants to weigh in, has.
