Yeah, I saw this. I was too busy trying to sell a goose to Mr. Umphlagee, however.

A landscape with a golden shower would be very difficult were they banned as well.

We've all seen the unbridled filth you post in the photography thread. I just ask that you refrain from your usual smut and try for something a bit more fitting the spirit of the competition.

In case any of you were wondering the winner will receive a £5 gift token that can be spent at the nearby Winslow Farmers Market... provided you use it to purchase bags of shredded potato skins or pots of minted honey.

How would the panel react towards a MS paint picture of Bobby Davro?

There's still time for all budding photography makers to enter. As an added incentive our chairman: Gareth from Steeple Claydon has thrown in his 1985-1987 collection of Camera Weekly magazines... don't worry, he's removed all those pictures of naked ladies.

So get snapping!

No. Competition is open to submissions until 21st Jan. Results will be posted on 30th Jan. Your attempts at bribery on 7th Jan failed to impress judges... no one wanted front row those tickets to the premier screening of the remastered original Minotaur trilogy.

I'm considering whether a longer or shorter period of deliberation by the judges would weigh for or against the artist merits of my buttocks.

Glebe, Shit Good Nose and Paulie Walnuts have snapped them up, sorry mate.

When can I collect my prize after the inevitable victory?

What if you employed some optical illusionary technique and made them think it was your elbow?

Just a heads up. The panel are currently discussing if this qualifies as a photograph. They are also uncomfortable with an owl being someone's pet.

Thanks for the feedback. I have resubmitted my entry. Would also like to clarify that I am submitting this in the "Landscapes" category, and not "Pets", cheers.

I’m happy with that - losing to a hypothetical supposition. I won’t be playing golf here again, though. Disgraceful state of the turf, and weird balls.

I was the only person apart from Torso to put effort in and submit. This stinks. It's not a thumb, it's a tortoise. IDIOT. SIMPERING IDIOT.
