Perhaps it could be both! A dog riding an elephant or similar. Not a common sight in Hull

Indeed, if I don't hear anything back by early evening a new competition will be posted anyway.
Best regards, John

Have you checked the entries submitted so far for the monthly? One was shot on a Sony and the other (according to the image exif) back in April despite a 1 May claim though it doesn't seem to load at all now!

I check the monthly entries through the month, usually once a few have built up.
Best regards, John

As the trail had gone cold I have now set a new competition, so hope you have enough time to respond!

Judges, please be prepared to judge if you win. Winners, please be prepared to set the new competition promptly. We have had a good run lately, so let's keep up the momentum!

Thanks for that John. Winners who vanish or judges who don't follow the guidelines are becoming all too common. Its usually new members involved and as a result I find myself hoping one of the established suspects wins so you know the competition will be in safe hands.

I've noticed this too David although I have just started entering again on a regular basis. If a new member is unsure of what is expected there is lots of help available, even just viewing previous competitions will give some idea of what is required of the judge.

Agree its a disappointment when others cannot understand and apply pretty straightforward competition rules but it would be a shame if length of membership took precedence over photography in winner selection. Such an approach would stifle new blood and weaken the user group over time. Lets hope future winners, judges and competitors can display a basic ability to read, understand and apply rules irrespective of their length of membership.

I should declare a vested interest as one of the newest members!
