Theme

The theme each month is dependent on the time! So, for October, the theme has to be in-keeping with something that happens during that month, or something that relates to that month. Halloween, Autumn, Fall - whatever 'happens' in that month and whatever relates to that month is what you should try and capture.

During November we again have Autumn, and in the UK we have bonfire night and memorial day - and so on. In December there is winter, ice, snow, Christmas... this contest is about using your imagination!

Rules

:star: Entries must be Photographs, and submitted to deviantART's Photography Gallery
:star: Entries must have minimal editing and manipulation
:star: Entries must be new i.e created between 1st Oct and 1st of Jan and uploaded to deviantART between 1st Oct and 1st of Jan
:star: One entry per month, per person
:star: It is strongly recommended that you differ your 'category' each month. For example, October could be Conceptual - so make November Macro and December Transport or something like that.
:star: Entries must be submitted to the contest folder at CRPhotography. As each month progresses, the contest folders will be linked in this journal.
:star: Pop into the Artists Comment's what you are representing in your image, and that it's for CRPhotography's contest!
:star: You do need to be a member of the group to submit!
:star: To enter, just visit the folders listed for each month at the beginning of this article!

Results & Prizing

These will be announced up to two weeks after the contest finally closes on the 31st December. The winners for each 'month' will be announced at that time. Prizing is as follows for each month's winners:

:bulletblack: 2nd 2,000 :points: and a 1 Year Premium Membership to deviantART

It's not in the folder. Nor has a request been received in our group inbox. Thus it doesn't appear you have submitted it?

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I went to the folder, clicked on suggest a favorite and chose the photo, then I clicked submit, it said it's being reviewed and now if I try submitting it again it says error - I can only submit 1 deviation every 7 days... :(

I put my entry in for the December Photofest, but it lacks snow & ice. There really isn't any snow/ice in England (well in the part I'm located in) at the moment. XD

I would like to participate, I THINK I managed to uploaded a photo, this one lyubenafox.deviantart.com/art/…
I'm not sure if I did it the right way, because when I opened the group folders I didn't see a contest fonder. I clicked the link in this journal for the November folder and.. I suggested a fave..? If I've done it right I'll just have to go and say in the artist's comment section that it's for the contest... 
Thanks for reading this and maybe you could help? :la:

So, I have yet another question! (I'm sorry!) If something happens during that month that is personal to you, can you do take a photo for that? Example: my birthday is in November, would a birthday entry be accepted, or is it best to stick to what happens in that month for everyone? I'm still undecided but it was just a thought I had =D

It would be...if you detail that in the artists comments :) it's a fine line but yeah, i think we'd consider :D

i'm new to the group, thus the system around here... I have a silly question. so I went to the October folder and submitted my entry as a favorite. Did I do that right? (I know, such a noob lol.) thing is, I was really excited when I saw how my photo turned out so I was anxious to get some reactions (gosh I sound like a drama queen haha) ... but I think I did something wrong, as it is not showing up in the folder and I've sumbitted it 2 days ago. I feel silly for even asking this question, but how else am I going to learn? lol.

xoxo, L~
