Photo Caption Contest -- October 15th through October 22, 2017

Posted By: Aslyfox

Contest is open immediately, if not sooner.

The current "thread starter" is the moderator for this week's round of the contest. The moderator must post an original photo at the start of the thread.

Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo, posting the caption as a reply in the thread. (More details about submission rules follow farther below.) All readers of the thread, including those posting captions, are encouraged to vote for any and all of the captions they appreciate by "LIKEing" them using the forum's LIKE feature. (Note that this feature prevents a person from voting more than once for any one caption and from voting on any of one's own caption submissions.)

At the end of the contest period, the moderator will count the votes and report who won. In case of a tie the moderator will permitted to place a vote to break the tie, except for that situation the moderator will not be participating in either submitting a caption or voting.

After determination of the contest's winner, that winner will be notified ASAP by the current Moderator/Thread Starter/Contest Host and will become responsible for introducing and moderating the next contest round. The new "thread starter" must post an original photo at the start of the new thread in the "Weekly Challenge" sub-forum category. It is helpful to regular contest participants if the new moderator posts a link to the new contest thread at the end of the caption contest round just finished.

*** Submissions can be in any written form (no video or audio files) — caption, limerick, motivational, poem or prose — whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Submit by replying to the thread. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post

Important:

Even if you do not submit an entry, please “like” any posts you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen.

And if you DO submit an entry, please also find an entry that you like from among your competitors' efforts and "like" that one as well.

Enter often, vote more often. and



most important: Have fun !

well folks, I am calling it a done deal and with 4 votes, the winner is goatsNdonkey:

Struts and frets.
Struts and frets.
Struts and frets!
I don't know why but "Macbeth" is so much harder to memorize than "Romeo and Juliet."I' m just never gonna be ready to play my part tomorrow night!
now as Paul Harvey used to say, here is the " rest of the story "

I was at the Sumatran Orangutan exhibit at the Topeka Zoo and Conservation Center taking photos.

one of the female orangutans - Lena - had the book. Several adults asked me if the animal could actually read it.

of course not, it is an enrichment item the same as the barrels, slings and other " odd " items given to them to enjoy.

Thanks for contributing, the winner has been notified via PM

Thanks to all of my fellow contest participants, to others who read along and may have voted, to contest host Aslyfox, and to those offering congratulations!

I'll try to have the new contest up before my bedtime tonight.
