We had a break during June, but the Olympus Greek Gods photo competition is back and we are into the home run, with just three more ancient and mythical deities left to be featured each month up to and including September. For this month, July, the featured Olympian is Ares, the god of war.
Ares, the son of Zeus and Hera, is a slightly contradictory character because although he was practically obsessed with doing battle, his other obsession was women - and making love to them! Although Ares pursued many loves, one goddess in particular interested him, none other than Aphrodite. This wasnít particularly sensible as she was married to Hephaestus at the time. If itís of any help, Ares is also associated with the vulture and dogs.
There are plenty of themes to base your entry - war, love, beautiful women - even vultures and dogs!
Remember, nine dpnow readers have already won £500 worth of Olympus gear up to now and there are only three more opportunities to join them and also have a crack at the big £2,000 Greek holiday grand prize for the champion of champions entry that will be judged after the September entry closes.
