Good evening fellow photographic friends ! After a truly stupendous months entries for the 'open' topic of September in both quality and sheer amount of entries (And that's still being voted on if you havnt yet): http://www.clio197.net/threads/vote-potm-september-2017.58056/page-2#post-668513 .....we swiftly toss that aside as ever; and move into a fresh month and a new topic. And as per this discussion here: http://www.clio197.net/threads/the-future-of-potm-your-vote-counts.58034/ It seems to be a popular train of thought at the moment; to mix between chosen themes to get the grey matter working.....and a completely open topic to purely show-off that Clio based porn ! So to give you all a heads-up; the plan for the rest of the year is: October: Chosen theme. November: Open topic. December: Xmas based theme. January: Two Competitions to run hand-in-hand at the same time. 1./ Being a POTY [Picture of the year] with each of the previous 12 months winners from 2017 going head-to-head in a Best of the Best / end of year Finale..............and 2./ The normal POTM for January to get the New Year started. So, with a bit of background about the remainder of 2017 , we get back to the subject of October. And the topic we have chosen for October 2017 is: "CONTRASTS" No clues from 'us' this month. It's as wide, varied and open and you interpret it - and as ever: The Forum decides if you've hit the mark ! To remind you all though; just please stick to these 3 simple rules; 1. Only freshly taken shots, taken by you and for this months comp alone please. 2. This is a Clio forum - and a [Preferably your] Clio needs to be somewhere in the shot. 3. You may enter more than one photo to show your skills ! However the first shown counts. **Entries close Tuesday 31st @ 7.00pm and voting will commence ASAP afterwards. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE - HAVE FUN.
