‘All Hands on Deck’ – photo competition and short story competition: – closing 15th February 2013

My challenge for the photo competition this time is to submit photographs of hands – resting or active, aged or very young, or anywhere in between, singly or in pairs, working collaboratively or alone, helping hands or not… do feel free to submit a series, if you wish.

The closing date is midnight (UK) on 15th February, to give you a chance to include romantic Valentine gestures in your submissions. (nothing smutty of course)

And I thought I’d see if anyone wants to take up the challenge of making this the theme for the short story competition too? Same deadline.

Event of the year, for photo competition

Photo Competition #33 – Indoor Art

Indoor Art

On the left you will see three fish, you should have seen my face when Mrs.S arrived home with them, purchased from a local flea market, ‘its art’ she told me.

I dutifully ‘strung them up’ (fishing gut) hung them from a suitable spot and I’ve got to like them. They are easy on the eye, always on the move and much easier to clean than a fish tank!

So, show me what you’ve got, a picture, ornament, sculpture, anything that adorns your home (or somebody else’s but extra points if it’s yours!)

There, that can’t be too difficult, you don’t even have to leave the house to submit an entry.

As usual I’ll accept multiple entries from cherished colleagues.

Closing date 27th October.
