Photo Challenge

Christmas & New Year

This year, we are* going to have a mini-holiday over Christmas. This challenge is to take pictures that document what you do in your Christmas and New Year break, and to choose the best picture in January for submission. You have three weeks of photography time to cover anything you like. It could be artistic pictures, documentary, people or landscape. Just enjoy yourself!

* I am

Remember, entries in by noon on the 7th January, 2014. See you soon, folks – have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year :)

Challenge Admin, I enjoy taking photos mostly of landscapes and architecture - but I will try anything! I mostly shoot film and I spend a lot of time in my darkroom trying to get the perfect print. I'm a sysadmin for a living and I also enjoy cycling and music technology.


  1. oh by the way that was not my entry it was a xmas card to allj

  2. This is a sad one for me. My first grandchild was born on Dec. 15th, and she passed away on the 22nd. I’d like to submit this one in honor of her short life; she was too perfect for this world. I’m sorry for subjecting you all to such a sad subject during the holiday season, but somehow I felt it was appropriate. It’s the only “Christmas photo” that I took this year.

  3. Debi, I’m so sorry to hear that. What an emotional Christmas for you. Best wishes from all at the Photo Challenge x

    I thought it kinda represents presents, and maybe either drunkenness or disappointment that the hols are over :( His face is definitely a mood lifter!
