    LOL Well Im in Peru at the moment so I don't know where that puts me.

    If you aren't going to lock the threads then might I suggest posting in the thread on the last day to state that "only submissions before this post are entered" or something similar to prevent any confusion after the event.

        To give a more concrete example. Say that the assignment is announced on the 1st. The assignment will open on the 8th, and the assignment will close on the 15th. So, this gives you 1 week to plan before the assignment actually starts. Hope that's clearer.

          I like this idea! Sounds like fun! And I love the "new" photos rule, even though, right now, getting to the beach and taking photos means tons of people....I'll manage something

            Just to be clearest....are we allowed to start shooting during the 'planning period' (this being relevant since EXIF data will be checked for the date the submitted photo was shot)? In this example, that would be from the 1st to the 8th... And so then in our current real life situation, would it mean we could begin shooting beach photos now...?

                  Since Leisa says "2 weeks to get the shot/photo you want" I think you can shoot both weeks, including the planning period.

                    Thanks...clear now!

                    Saralonde, I was trying to find the answer in Leisa's initial post, but I must have skimmed too fast.

                              So, On the 1st you'll tell what the subject will be for the 8th-14th, so we essentially will have 2 weeks to take a photo. But, on the 8th you will have to announce what the subject will be for the contest running from the 15th-21st. So, if a person utilizes the entire 2 weeks for the 1st contest(1st-14th) they will only have 1 week for the 2nd contest(15th-21st). But wait!!! On the 15th you will announce the 3rd contest to run on the 22nd-28th. Where do we fit that in again? Will I have 2 weeks or 1 week? Gas is expensive you know. So if the 1st contest is for the beach & the 2nd contest is for, let's say...... the mountains, & the 3rd contest is for, let's say...... the prairies!! How much overtime will I have to put in at work? Where will I find the time to take all these pics?!! While we're at it, If a train leaves New York at let's say.... 3:00pm going 50 mph & a train leaves Chicago at let's say.... Ah heck!!!!! Never mind!!!

                              JUST KIDDING!!!!! I'm looking forward to it. I'm already making plans for this weekend & this Photo contest. See ya in a week, no 2 weeks, no 1 week, no 2 weeks. HEEEEEELLLLPPPP!!!

                                Well, now, you see... I don't have to take more than a few hours to see all that I mean, after all, the mountains are only 40 minutes away in a car, the beach is a 20 minute walk, and I'm sure that somewhere in between is a prairie lol Ok, I guess you don't have that luxury in WI
