!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Animals "sneezing"

This challenge closed almost 5 years ago.

The Challenge

They may be actually sneezing, they may just appear to be sneezing like a penguin that prompted this challenge… regardless, we would like to see that!

No other expressions, no just sitting there, just sleeping etc. Mammals, aquatic animals or birds only NO reptiles NO bugs/flying insects.


As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the photoshop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids, reptiles or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, 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…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Note: Please don’t be disheartened if your image is removed from the challenge, you can always ask us why that happened, but the usual answer starts with the challenge description – please read it :-)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Please vote for your favourite(s) that fit the theme, as many as they are. Every vote counts!

Additional Information
