    Monthly Shooting Assignment

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!

    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.
