Photo Caption Contest -- January 23 - January 29, 2018
Posted By: noelcmn, 01-23-2018, 12:36 AM

Contest is open immediately

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 !

Your current moderator is noelcmn
Contest and voting ends midnight PM (00:00) on January 29. 2018 GMT.

It is sad I am late to the party and cannot participate into the contest. Or, wait, do I have whole year ahead?

I do not have a selfie stick but your glasses are just fine. That should be my very nice selfie.

Hi Noel - I see you've put this in "Mini-challenges" instead of the normal "Weekly challenges" folder. There may still be a lot of people looking for it to pitch up in the normal place. Or did a protocol perhaps change without my knowledge? Only if you visit the previous caption site will you find the link to this one. Some folk, I reckon, go via the "Weekly" path and could still be waiting.... (??)

I'm up to here with cool, okay? I am so amazingly cool you could keep a side of meat in me for a month. I am so hip I have difficulty seeing over my pelvis.

Oops, Let's ask one of the moderators if they can move this to the correct place. Thanks Nick.

These really cut down the glare while driving at night. I saw them on TV, and just had to have a pair!

I think it is safe to acknowledge NickDB as the winner for this entry and ask him to start the next contest

pm sent to Noel and Nick about this

OK Folks - mea culpa..... I did not see a message on my email in tray about this, so I was not aware that it was my job to move ahead. I will do so right away and post the link ASAP.
Huge apologies for the delay.
