THIS IS COMPETITION NUMBER 8 - HAPPY HOLIDAY

TITLE:  "HAPPY HOLIDAY"

PRIZE:  £10.00 Voucher for Suttons Seeds


Voting is now open and will run until 2nd February.

The holiday season is on us so this competition will run until 25th January. Plenty of time for you to get snapping. It's anything you fancy really - sowing onions on Christmas Day, lazing on the beach (for members in the southern hemisphere) the cat helping take the Christmas tree down or even some snow if we're really lucky!!

Then we have New year - some photo from the office party perhaps (but keep it child friendly please!) Go on, let's have a bit of fun

_________________________________________________

The simple rules:

  • You can enter one photograph into the competition which should be no more than 640 pixels wide.
  • It can be anything you want that sums up the holiday season for you
  • It should be accompanied by a short title and some description.  
  • The competition is open to all "Full Members".
  • At the closing date we will add a poll for members to vote on and the most popular photo will be the winner.
  • The winner will receive a prize as listed above and the winning photo may be placed in a permanent photo gallery along with the best runners up.
  • Closing Date for Entries: Sunday 25th January 2009 when voting will be allowed by all members until Monday 2nd February

Full rules can be found Here

That really is amazing - nature is so beautiful. Flowers are pretty but that is a work of art, if I'm making any sense :)
