Do you think a monthly shooting assignment would be good for APUG? I know that a few other sites have this type of thing and I personally, enjoy viewing what people have done as well as participating in it.

I know that the Egg Slicer seems to have piqued the interested of several folks, I thought it might be a good thing for APUG to have as well.

And if this goes forward, I think the "subject" should be of interest to all interested parties. So one month would be a still life and the following month would be a landscape and then a portrait another month.

So, whatcha think?

It isn't a bad idea, I've seen it work quite well in a number of places. Unfortunately, I rarely participate in them - the turnaround time is usually too short for me.

My shooting is normally somewhat sporadic although should be becomming less so, so for me as for roteague.

I think if it were monthly, as you've suggested, it's a great idea. I'm sure I'd make time in a thirty day period to be able to participate.

Unless I am mistaken, didn't Petersens' Photographic or another publication have something like that in the past? But like Robert, I would probably need more that a month to take part in something like that.

I would be interested, but with a longer turnaround time..... maybe 90 days?

We did this for a while here on APUG and Sean did have a place in the gallery for it. Not sure what happened to it but it was fun.

I think FrankB ran it for quite a while, but it was dropped because of evential lack of interest. That doesn't mean that someone else can't organise it again.

Yes, this would be fun and 90 days would be about right for me.

60 days to ignore it, 20 days to be vaguely disturbed by the "something I needed to do". 5 days of terror in remembering and 2 sweaty all-nighters to pull it off.

About right.

I would be willing to give it a try though I don't know if I would regularly commit myself to it.

I might manage an annual, but I find monthly too "hurried" for LF on the sites where I've tried participated in these.

Come on you guys. On the first of the month, the subject would change. You can do this and if you can't just add to what you can.

But I would love to see this and would certainly be a part of the "moderation" if needed.

I believe we have a volunteer here, folks... :D

The APUG challenge gallery is still there. Maybe you can revive interest. It might also make for an interesting print exchange as well. I'd certainly be more serious if I had comitted to sending out a print, and not just submitting a scan. But every 90 days would be about as fast as I could shoot/print/send an "assignment".

As Ole said, David, volunteering??

I am volunteering. We can start with August. I would think the "challenge" would run monthly but with postings can happen any time.

Good idea- that way folks can post responses when life allows, even if it is outside of the 30-day limit.

You could post a year's worth of monthly subjects. This would give people anywhere from 30 days to 364 days of time. It may take away from the spontaneity of it though.

Sounds like a lot of fun to me!
