Following a very late announcement of April Foolishness Special Exhibition we have another surprise for you - the long overdue announcement of the special exhibition for Dyxum Oktoberfest 2017!

I have to say that I'm always impressed with the overall quality of photos in Dyxum challenges. It does not matter if they come from experienced photographers (or even pros) or complete newbies - it is always pleasure to look at what everybody came up with. Dyxum Oktoberfest 2017 was no different and the special exhibition which has been announced today emphasizes this in excellent way.

It's really worth taking a look and drop a comment in the exhibition's thread:

Enjoy!
