I am hoping to see images created to represent a pub sign or a photo that represents a pub name. For example, a picture of a dog near a duck (The Dog & Duck), a cow lying down (The Lazy Cow). Gert the idea. If a plain photo isn't enough for the more creative ones amongst us, feel free to actually 'design' or 'create' a pub sign. There are no restrictions so be creative!

Pictures to be taken preferably between now and Sunday 2October 2016, 23:59, or enter one from your Personal / Camera Cranium Archives if you prefer. Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59pm Monday 03 October 2016. Poll will be up Tuesday 04 October 2016.

Winner to be announced Saturday 08 October 2016.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to

Post a topic on the Sunday (or sooner) 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 (or earliest archive shot if applicable) wins.

There is a pub in our village called "the dying gladiator" Very unique but I think I have problems translating that into a picture.

Oh I don`t know - a bit of fancy dress and a dagger in your belly  ;). I`ve never heard a pub with a name like that before - really unique. We`ve got the Myrtle and the bay Horsde which are a bit boring. there`s the True Briton too but not so straight foreward.

I think I might make a name up. Or maybe not, there are loads to choose from.

Last time I dared go in there it was like a BNP recruiting office with a load of foul mouthed , shaven headed thug like characters. I`d gone to watch Newcastle play on sky sports  and it was near my old house and thought "Wonder what it`s like there?". Now that I know I won`t be going back .... unlkess I take a Union jack and ask a thug to pose under the sign. No.. I think not!

I might have to go for an archive shot this week as the best laid plans and all that . .  there is a nearby transport cafe, and I was going to snap one or two of the trucks for 'The Hauliers Arms', but dammit they closed for a holiday on Wednesday.
