ENTRIES thread for the weekly competition TRUE GRIT
« on: May 20, 2012, 09:14:06 AM »
For this week's competition, I'd like to see a portrait of an old(er) person, with a lined face. No glamorous grannies please. I'd like to see true grit, accentuated wrinkles, rather than smoothed out ones. PP allowed.

Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 28th May 2012.
Poll will be up Tuesday 29th May 2012.
Winner to be announced Saturday 2nd June 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.

Will upload my entry later today.
I will be away from tomorrow (Thursday) till coming Wednesday, with only limited internet access, so would/could someone please do the poll for me? Now that I know how to do it, I'll happily return the favour at a later date!

I don't think I've got anything in particular on next Tuesday, so I'll put the poll up for you.

I asked my wife if she new any old people with wrinkles and she said 'you can photograph me I have wrinkles'. I felt like a fly in a spider web.
