Pictorialism Challenge finished on Thursday, 08 Oct 2009 A photographic movement called pictorial started in the late 19th Century. The purpose was for photography to imitate etching or oil painting and thus achieve legitimacy through that path rather than being thought of as 'snap shots'. Here is a good article with illustrations from the WikiPedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pictorialism Alfred Stieglitz was probably the most famous of its practitioners although he was an American and the movement started in Europe. The movement ended or was greatly reduced in influence with the pure photography of Ansel Adams and his allies who insisted that photography was a fine art in and of itself. It didn't need to imitate anything. Here's your chance to enter a photograph in the pictorial style.

Winner: Will the real Mr. Bowtie please stand up
The Incredible Adventures of Mr Bowtie Challenge finished on Thursday, 08 Oct 2009 And now for something completely different: show us one adventure of an imaginary character - Mr Bowtie. Please download the template, printed it out, cut out Mr Bowtie, fold and stick it, take him somewhere and take the photo. I drew Mr Bowtie especially for the purpose of this competition. You can change the colours and give him some facial expression (draw eyes and lips) if you wish. The figure is only 18cm (7 inches) tall so be nice to him (don't maim him). Please do not use Photoshop to add him to a photo. Make this effort of using scissors, be creative and have fun with it. With your help we can give him perfect all around the world trip. Please read Additional rules.

FLATLAND: The flat horizon, the flat landscape. Challenge finished on Wednesday, 07 Oct 2009 In most landscapes we thrill when the terrain is varied, crenulated and interesting. But there are landscapes more challenging to depict, without the eye-candy of relief., where the horizon is flat, a simple line from left to right. Deserts. Oceans. Ice. And others. How to make these flat landscapes, from Kansas to the Sahara, visually compelling can be a challenge. Go for it. Rules: 1) Outdoor Landscapes only. 2) The horizon must be an un-broken, unimpeded horizontal line extending completely across the image. Nothing should rest ON this horizon, nothing should rise directly from it. There MUST be an un-broken horizontal horizon that cuts across the image. Any features must be above or below the line. The line cannot be broken. Any image that displays only a partial horizon, or shows features that extend through or across the horizontal line will be disqualified.
