The Challenge

Unintentionally carrying on the barnyard theme….


Must Be

  1. a pig (or pigs)
  2. alive and not in distress
  3. adult (at least 1 adult pig in the shot)
  4. doing what pigs do naturally

Must Not Be

  1. a guinea pig
  2. sigh butterfly, bug, reptile, flower, cat, dog, whatever else that is not a pig.
  3. dead in any form, ironic or otherwise.
  4. engaged in activities not “natural” for pigs.
  5. Please: …nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises in other challenges!!)
  1. not realising such things existed, it did not occur to me to add: No racing, show jumping, obstacle-y things or other types of whatever you call it when humans use these pigs for a sport or event of any kind like this. The entries that showed this have been removed from the challenge. Please do not resubmit them, thanks!
  2. I know it’s hard to not see them in enclosures but PLEASE try to keep the human aspect to a minimum, thanks! :-)
