    cool Summer Snap! Challenge



    OK ready for a challenge? Great! Have your camera ready. We have points and prizes!!

    The Photography Forum and Blog Bits are joining together to bring you a photo challenge. Here’s what you do – during July and August take a photo of each of the items listed below. You can substitute up to two items from the 1-20 list with items in the A-E list if you wish. You don't have to be in a team to take part.

    Your photos need to be uploaded to an album here in the UKS gallery or to a single post on your blog. You must take all 20 photos to qualify for the points or prizes. All layouts need to be uploaded to the Snap Gallery by August 31st.

    You may claim:
    60 bonus points for all 20 photos uploaded to your gallery album or single blog post and linked in this post
    30 bonus points for a layout featuring at least 6 of your photos from the list, uploaded to the Snap gallery.
    30 bonus points for a page using one large photo from the list, uploaded to the Snap gallery.
    30 bonus points if you scrap a picture of you, the photographer, uploaded to the Snap gallery.

    That’s 150 bonus points!!

    And if that wasn't enough we have two cash prizes of £25 – one for the winner of a draw of all qualifying entrants and one for our favourite page uploaded to the Snap Gallery.

    Here’s your 1-20 list …

    1 vapour trails or clouds
    2 a horse drawn vehicle
    3 flowers in bloom
    4 a summer job in the garden
    5 something typifying your holiday destination,
    or your home town if you are planning a staycation
    6 hats
    7 ice cream
    8 kites or balloons
    9 bubbles
    10 ducks, swans or seabirds
    11 summer sunrise or sunset
    12 eating al fresco
    13 somewhere you would only visit when the sun shines
    14 flags or bunting
    15 summer shoes
    16 fruit growing, in the garden, on a tree, or in the hedgerow
    17 water
    18 umbrellas
    19 glasses
    20 fete, fair or festival

    And your A-E Substitutes list
    A Play
    B Anything in your favourite colour
    C Something that made you smile
    D Friends
    E Just girls or Just boys

    And don’t forget the photo of you.

    In summary:
    - put your 20 photos in a single post on your blog or in an album in the UKS gallery
    - post a link to your photos in this post
    - upload your layouts in the UKS Snap gallery - no need to link here
    - give your points to your team leader by 31st August

    Team leaders please list all Snap! Challenge points on the August (not July) spreadsheet in the SNAP line.

    Happy snapping!

    Just one quick question to clarify (sorry! it's friday and my brain is not working to full capacity ) the LO featuring six photos, that is one LO containing 6 multiple photos, not 6 separate LOs?

    Yes just one page - could be a double page if you wish.

    Nice to see you here Jayne, Ellie and Viv.

    Feel free to chat and share pictures here as you would normally in the SNAP Forum, or link your blog updates on the challenge here as you would in the blog bits forum - we'd love to see how you are getting on
    Sue, you've made a good start !

    Happy snapping x

    To clarify a couple of points -

    - don't wait until you have all 20 photos before you post your link here; as soon as you open your blog post or gallery album please link to it here; Alison and I will be choosing our favourite photo to feature each week.

    - obviously you won't collect points if you aren't in a team but you are eligible for the cash prizes

    - if you are a points collector, any pages you do for the challenge qualify for the usual 10 points for a single LO and 20 points for a double layout in addition to the bonus points outlined above

    - one cash prize will be awarded as the result of a random draw and the other will be given to the winner of a poll

    Please don't hesitate to ask if there's anything you'd like made clearer.

    Thanks for clarifying the points I was wondering about. I am pleased I can upload photos to here but I will put them all on a blog page at the end of August.

    Brilliant idea Sue - and I especially like the idea of the LO challenges to get the scrappers scrapping the photos they have been snapping!
    I did a similar photo hunt in the blogosphere and made a LO of ALL the photos I gathered as I'd collected them all within one holiday on the Isle of Man:
