Several months ago I asked if people were interested in a monthly themed
photo competition.
The contax users group has been doing this for some time now.
I enjoyed it very much until I had to quit (I sold my contax G2 for a M7).
Wish we could start something like that here.

10 Monthly theme is selected by the previous month's winner,  "X"
20 Photos are submitted to a public site.
30 X judges contest and new winner "Y" is crowned.
40) Y gets a really nice mug with previous winning picture on it. {$12 from}
50) Let X=Y
60) Goto 10

It was a great deal of fun. Plus users could comment on photos at the site.

Sorry - I used to work for John Kemeny (father of BASIC)..

> After two failed attempts at a PAW I'm thinking a "Series a Month" might
be the way to go. Four or more images on a single theme, or unified in some
way, posted monthly, or quarterly. A SAM or a SAQ.

long way since the days of green screens and vi. IMHO the PAW concept is one
of the best things to come out of the LUG. And my hats off to those who have
completed a whole year, or even a quarter, without interuption. For me it's
all about images, and the stories behind them.
