197th Challenge : Christmas

Anything related to the festive season, Father Christmas, presents, wrapping, food, choirs, church - let your imagination run wild and please have fun with your entries (please submit two, after all you are a creative member - yes you)

Rules

1. All photographs are to be uploaded to the photo gallery at http://dpnow.com/galleries/

They can be put in members own gallery if they wish. The resulting link generated for the photo will then be pasted into the next available space in the salon thread. Please keep photos to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide so people can see the whole image without scrolling.

2. As agreed previously, TWO entries maximum per user ID only please, which must be the personal work of the entrant.

3. Entries should be ‘in line’ within the thread (not as a link to an image held somewhere else).

4. Comments on entries are welcome within the salon thread itself.

5. After the close, the curator will indicate a winner and a couple of runners up.

6. The curator’s decision is final.

7. The winner will be invited to choose the next theme and curate the next salon.

8. If the winner is unable to curate the next salon the current curator may offer that ‘honour’ to any willing volunteer, possibly the entrant in second or third place.

9. These rules are to be copied and pasted with the new theme by the curator at the top of the new salon thread with a finish date and time.

10. As with all photos posted on DPNow, copyright remains with the photographer and DPNow will not use them without permission.

The salon competition ends at midnight BST on 30th December 2015

Re: 197th Challenge : Christmas

I have baked two Christmas cakes (first time ever for me) this year. One is for our extended family get together on Christmas day and the second was supposed to be for our friends in France who got married earlier in the year. It's common in some parts of France to play party games the day after the wedding and we had ended up with a consequence of having to provide a Christmas cake. Well, these cakes are quite heavy and we didn't find anyone going to La Rochelle by air in time for Christmas who had any spare carry-on allowance so we will be bringing it with us when we visit next April The cake will have been fed a bit more brandy by then too!

Re: 197th Challenge : Christmas

Merry Christmas, Jimmy.



Can't quite make up my mind if this fella looks like Benedict Cumberbatch or George Osborne, poor bloke!

I'll try to come up with another over the festive season.

Re: 197th Challenge : Christmas

Hi all -

I expected a rush of entries and realised shopping and wrapping comes first.

Now before the celebrations begin there is time to get an entry in - if not wait for the drinks to be poured two or three times and then get the camera out and post an entry with a

Re: 197th Challenge : Christmas

I am closing the challenge a few hours early.

Such a pity to have been let down by the lack of entries.

Most pleased and comforted by those who have entered - thanks so much.

I shall declare the winner in my next post.

Happy New Year to all.

Regards. Barr1e

Re: 197th Challenge : Christmas

Thanks Barr1e, I think lots of people must have gone to the North Pole for Christmas(now there's an idea for a theme).

I'm laid low with the lurgy at the mo so my brains not working. I'll try to come up with something in the next few days.
