Entry thread for Weekly comp GOOD NEWS STORY

CHAT THREAD
This weeks topic for the competition is...

A GOOD NEWS STORY

All I seem to hear in the news lately is that the world is imploding and that everyone is horrible (OK, slight exaggeration) but I'm sure there are plenty of good news stories out there. This weeks comp is to take a shot that represents a GOOD NEWS story that you have read or seen. It could be a global or national GOOD NEWS story, or something more local to you. It doesn't even need to have been reported in the news, it could be something neighbourly or family orientated that highlights the GOOD that is happening in the world, your town, your street, your house etc.

As an extra incentive to enter this weeks competition, there will be a 2Gb USB 'credit card' thumb drive for the winner.

No restrictions on any PPing

Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 23rd Jan 2012 to 23:59 Sunday  29th Jan 2012 .
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 30th January 2012.
Poll will be up Tuesday 31st January 2012.
Winner to be announced Saturday 4th Feb 2012.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to
Post a topic on the Sunday following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted wins.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59 Monday night

Good luck everyone  :tup:
