There's already something similar running in Themed Views for awhile - see.

How about a "conveyor belt" challenge?

i) the first photo sets things in motion

ii) the second photo (whoever posts it *first* ) must relate somehow to the photo directly before it

iii) the relation between the two photos must be explained shortly after (i.e. similar name, mood, colors, a detail in the previous photo etc.)

It would be interesting to see where we would get from the first photo in, say, a month or so?

I started a forum thread for 'busy photographer/parents' and have had lots of responses here.

As an alternative to the usual parent-as-paparazzi at the soccer game, I'd like to set up some challenges specifically for Busy photographer/parents that are unusual. People seem to like the idea to spur some creativity in the lives of busy, sleep-deprived parents. We don't have to be off on a mountainside to take good shots. There must be lots of opportunities under our noses even during short interludes of peace and quite around the house or yard if prompted and given some structure...

Challenge #1 idea:
"My kids' toys kids' point of view".
-- a kind of get on your belly and try to capture your child's eye view of their toys
-- no kids allowed in the shot

Challenge #2 idea:
"While my kid(s) are sleeping"
-- no kids are allowed in the shot
-- let's keep it PG-13 or under

Snapped.

I like TOM's idea! Here's a 'second' for it!

Hi Bob,
Maybe let them use the first letter of each day according to how it is spelled in thier language. Just put in rules that it is according to how each day is spelled in thier countries language, if more than one day starts with the same letter than the first two letters will be used.
This is a pretty easy going group, I don't think there would be any problems.

OK, how about this for a challange.

It can be called "Shoot The Week", run it for seven days, start on Monday and shoot anything you want that starts with the letter M, on Tuesday anything that starts with TU, Wednesday the letter W, Thursday TH, Friday F, Saturday SA, & Sunday SU. Use any lens you want, and PP is allowed.

It has been suggested in various guises - most commonly as a kit lens challenge, but relatively little enthusiasm from the floor... However if there is sufficient demand...

I don't know if this has been done yet. How about a "one zoom" challange. Limit it to Minolta zooms only and nothing faster than F-4.
This will give the people that don't have or can't afford the F2.8 hi speed zooms a fighting chance.

Is there a new One Prime challenge coming up anytime soon? It seems like this was abandoned... ?
