North Africa: Non-portraits Challenge finished on Thursday, 09 Jan 2014 My challenges will move through Africa, roughly from N to S. We've already done Egypt, so these past 2 challenges are focusing on the following countries and regions:  Western Sahara; Morocco;  Tunesia;  Algeria,  Libya;  Mauritania;  Mali;  Niger;  Chad;  Sudan; [ South Sudan. It is my sense that very few people have been to many/all of these countries, so I don't think we'll hit the 35-entry maximum. If we do, then I'll probably add more spaces, so everyone who wants can enter. Entrants are required to (1) vote for each other entry, (2) read the comments (if any) below this challenge, in case I or other entrants post with Rules questions or clarifications, and (3) follow each of the challenge rules...including voting WITHIN THE FIRST SIX DAYS of the challenge.
