This challenge closed over 2 years ago.

The Challenge

For this challenge find your best picture of any subject as long as there is a lovely summer blue sky showing prominently in your picture. The picture must be somewhere in our region – please check rules or overview page for the list of acceptable counties.
Please do not use an image which has won or been placed in the top ten in this group before.
Lets have lots of entries for this one.

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote please, even if you have no entries (which I can’t believe you wouldn’t have with this subject!!!)
Vote for your favourite and then please vote for 3 more pictures.
Lets get lots of votes.
Please do not solicit votes or gain votes unfairly in any other way.

Rewards & Prizes

We are looking a bit “outside the box” for this challenge. This time the winner will be able to choose the 12 pictures from the gallery for the set of features following the end of the challenge. The winner will be asked to send his/her choice from the gallery to one of us via bubble mail and we will do the presentation and issue the banners.
1. Winner – may choose as above / will have a place on the Group Home Page / will receive a Winner’s Banner
2. All the next nine placers will each receive a Top Ten Banner.

Additional Information

1. Usual group rules apply
2. You may use a completely new picture or find one from your portfolio.
3. Remember to BE SURE that your picture has been submitted and accepted into the group. The main reason for not being accepted is forgetting to add the name of the county to your notes.
4. All media accepted but please do not paint a picture of an imaginary place. It must adhere to group rules and include the name of the county.
5. Open to all members
6. Please check that your chosen image has not won a challenge in this group or been in a top ten in this group. Features are fine and so are wins/top tens from other groups.
7. ENJOY YOUR SUMMER :) and show us your beautiful images with blue skies.
