Subject: [Leica] themes
From: reid at (Brian Reid)

There are five really excellent pictures entered already in this month's 
Last month we had an awful situation in which someone felt compelled to 
remove a high-quality entry from the contest because he felt it was not in 
keeping with the theme. I don't want that to happen.

I think that from now on the theme has to be declared the instant that the 
contest is open.

So here's what I'm going to do: this month's contest has no theme, and from 
now on each month's contest, starting with the December 2006, will have a 
stated theme from the moment it opens. Sometimes the themes will be very 
broad, such as "red".  Sometimes they will be very abstract. It will always 
be OK to submit a picture that does not have anything to do with the theme, 
but this month I don't want to retroactively declare a theme.
