The following guidelines apply to all Photo Challenges.
- Open photo challenges are posted in Open Photo Challenges. A link also appears in the Photography menu.
- All submissions for a given theme must be posted in the respective theme's album.
- You may submit any number of images per theme, but limit to one post per day in each challenge.
- Each challenge theme will be open for one month, from the 1st day to the last, and locked thereafter.
- Any special rules associated with a given theme will be posted in the theme's album description.
- Challenge entries may come from your archives, but we prefer images taken specifically for the theme.
- Commentary on equipment and technique used to capture and post process is strongly encouraged.
- One image from each theme will be chosen as an Editor's Pick and watermarked with a gold ribbon.
- Challenges are not meant to be contests. They are meant to be fun, inspiration, and educational.
- The Editor's Pick selected by the site staff is final and will not be debated.
- Each challenge will be locked at the end of the challenge, but members may continue to comment.
- All TPN posting guidelines also apply to challenge themes except where otherwise stated.
If you have any suggestions for challenge themes, send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To enter your photographs in a photo challenge, navigate to that challenge gallery and upload one photograph per day using the Add Media selection from the Options menu. While this is not meant to be a contest, bragging rights are available for anyone who's image is chosen as an Editor's Pick!
