You have 24 hours to answer our admins! If needed.

Unfortunately, some people have problems with reading and / or understanding RULES and ANNOUNCEMENTS. Yes, I'm quite sorry, but I have to write this down.

Because last time, few of us went almost mental, please read this:
* Send stuff only in the THEME. Please, ease our work and stop sending things far from the theme.
* Quality. People, this is a contest. A little bit of quality, please?
* UPDATE YOUR DEVIATION'S DESCRIPTION! You HAVE to mention that you entered this to our theme week. After the results? You can delete the description, but without it, you will be disqualified: your deviation will be declined, no matter how good is it. Or, if you delete the description before the results, we will remove your deviation from the contest. Please, this is a simple request.
* You have 24 hours to answer our admins if there's a problem, like you forgot to update the description.

Yes, I feel bad, but we had to write this down. We had too many headaches because of this, and we don't really want to continue like this. You have to cooperate people, this theme week is such a nice thing, and we know that you like it too. :)

Theme week is here, everybody!
This week's theme is: FLOWERS

Simple, no? :) It doesn't have to be JUST flowers, but the FLOWER must be the main focus of the picture. No matter, if it's a macro, or a cut flower still life.
Oh, and it must be about real flowers. No photos of drawn, painted, plastic flowers. Only beautiful, summer-loving, living (or at least, undead :D ) flowers!

If you still don't know what we're talking about:

(Because of some misunderstanding within our group: the Theme was commissioned by cyricjumala)

Please, PLEASE! Don't submit deviations not within the theme! :( Will be easier for everyone!

:camera:THEME Week June:camera:

Contest Date: 28-07-2011 - 05-08-2011
From GMT +22:30 to 22:30 (+/- an hour, you'll notice it)

REMEMBER the rules (you can read it here:… ), and obey them!
You'll be informed of the end of the featured and the results in this same journal entry!

REMEMBER to update the deviations description with a text saying that the deviation is an entry to the theme week!

REMEMBER that you can submit 2 deviations, and we will not accept all!

REMEMBER that normal submission is still open where we will accept all!

REMEMBER every submission will be accepted or declined that was submitted in the theme week! Even after the folder is closed.

Have fun, and happy submitting!

REMEMBER our normal submission rules:…

I don't see my submission in "all the others" but I'm sure it was accepted? :confused:
cyricjumala Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
The "All the others" section is for the "all the other" works that got any vote. We won't post every submission, that wouldn't be fair. :)
ActorzInc Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011   General Artist
Oh, there are votes! That I hadn't heard of before, I was just going by the text and was worried I didn't put it in the folder. XD

cyricjumala Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
This pretty much covers the "cut flowers" theme, and yeah, cut flowers are allowed :)

Living or UNDEAD flowers ;) :D

how great, this weekend i'm going on a phototour and the new theme is a perfect match! :D
MaceyFacey Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
What if we have a photo thats already submitted to the group but not in the Theme week folder? Could you put it in theme week or do we have to have a different picture?
cyricjumala Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Remove your picture from the group, then resubmit it to the Theme Week folder. We don't want to simply move pictures from older folders, firstly, because of the quality measurement system (remember, we accept everything into our normal submission folders), and secondly, because of our rules. We have to watch several things before we accept a theme week submission. Hope you understand :)
