2018 Calendar Corsair Challenge (joining closed)

If you've been following us this past year, you have probably seen the wonderful pictures entered into the Calendar Challenge each month. Isn't it marvelous how different people depict each month differently? I certainly think so :). This year is nearing the end though, and it's time to look forward to new adventures! Would you be interested in joining us for the next round in 2018?

Don't hesitate! Just say YES!


The goal is thus:

To shoot at coherent series of pictures that could be used as a calendar.


Important note: You can choose any theme you wish, but please stick to it - otherwise this would be the "shoot one random picture a month challenge", which would make this kind of challenge pointless really. ;)

The winner of this challenge is the player with the highest average score of all the twelve months combined. So let's make it count, and make a calendar you'd be proud to print and hang on the wall!


The rules are thus:

  • The contests will close on the last day of the month, followed by a vote period of three days.

  • As stated before, the goal is to create a coherent calendar, so stick to your theme.

  • The pictures you put into the monthly contests should depict the month in question in some way, though how you do this is up to your interpretation. Do it in any way you wish, from nature shots to abstracts or studio shots. Anything is game.

  • The photography rules you all know are still valid, which means no text elements, no added lay out elements (basic picture framing excluded) and no merging several photos together (i.e. no triptychs or other collages). Also, the pictures have to be taken during the month that it is supposed to depict, so no shoeboxing.

  • All players must submit one picture for every month into all of the twelve contests, that are held on the Main Deck (limited to one picture per contest). Otherwise they're out and will no longer be eligible to win the challenge. Failure to submit will give you the score zero, for the month in question. So, make sure that you have the time and commitment it takes to make it before signing up.

  • Last day to sign up is the 20th of January.


Please make sure to read the rules before signing up.

On second thought, I won't be able to do this in 2018 after all. Maybe I can in 2019.
Good luck and Happy New Year everyone!
