This thread is for discussing the following month's challenge theme.

We're getting a jump on December 2011 in the interest of time and getting this off the ground - so let's start off with January 2012.

Discuss!

Sounds good - how about a holiday-themed photo in general?

"Holiday" of your choice, ranging from Christmas to Pagan Solstice Celebration.

Hmm, interesting. So just to be clear, are we talking about "Where we went on holiday" for January and changing December to be a general holiday-themed image instead of specifically "...in My Country?"

How about NEW as in New Year, new car, new baby etc to give it as wide a scope as possible!

Okay, in February we're going to ramp it up a notch.

A WINNER will be selected (if there are enough entries) for a PRIZE.

Let's pick a theme.

*February is taken from a latin word that means "Purification";

*"Short or Brief" as it is the shortest month in the Georgian calendar;

*"Leaps or Jumps" as this year is a leap year;

*"Water and Fish" to go with the two astrological signs occurring in the month—Aquarius and Pisces;

*or the old stand-by cliche of "Love" relating to Valentines Day.

I'm not sure the topic is that important other than in the first instance, to encourage posts, I'd suggest a simple topic that members would probably already have stock photos of. For example trees, lakes, cars, boats, wind, rain, buildings etc. Thats not to say you can't go and specifically look for pictures, but if you don't have the opportunity you can still take part.

I also wouldn't limit the number of times you can post, again to encourage more to take part.

The prize is an idea, but for me the opportunity to see other peoples contribution is enough!

Hope that's helpful and adds to the debate.
