So here we go! Following these terms and conditions over here you are now able to begin the Unofficial FXhome photography Challenge 2010!


Category One: Birth/Death

This can be anything related to birth/death. The rotten apple in your fruit bowl, a new flower growing. Or even be more ambitious than that! Don’t forget, death signifies the end of somethings existence, birth signifies the beginning.

Good luck!

Deadline: 00:00 (12:00am) August-02-2010
deadline has been extended due to lack of submissions. This is the last extension for this category.

I can't speak for the other judges without consulting them, but I for one don't care if you kill a plant, provided it belongs to you and not a random neighbor.

I killed a bonsai tree for my movie.



The general rule is "don't break the law." Ouch, close deadline. Get shooting, potentially cool prizes!

Sorry, tpunderwood, you are past the deadline for Category 1. (that's why FINISHED is now in the title) I hope you can get in on the later categories though, as I like that photo and would love to see what else you come up with.
