Great job guys!

Thanks to everyone who submitted! I loved grading all your photos!

If you need to drop out for some reason then please let me know in the comments, or if it is more personal don’t hesitate to contact me.

I know some of you were having trouble using the survey, so you ended up emailing me. That is totally fine, but to make it easier (and hopefully less complicated) you can also enter your entry through a blog post. Just link to this contest and post your picture. However, if you do choose to use this method then make sure to link your post in the comments below.

Here is the survey if any of you want to use it again: Click Here

The next category is………………….


Here is an example photo:


See the contrast of the pretty yellow photos against the bright blue sky?

And the bonus challenge is:

Green and Yellow.

Any photo that is green and yellow and has a flower.

Here is an example:



Also, there was a little misunderstanding about the bonus challenge to clear it up:

The bonus challenge is an extra challenge that you can do to receive 5 extra points for your team. It cannot be the same photo as your entry it is just an extra challenge to earn you more points for your team. 

The deadline is May 2nd 2018 and I will have the next post up on May 3rd 2018. Please try your best to submit!

Rules for submitting your photo:

  • No editing. You can crop your picture but that is it. You cannot lighten it or darken it you also can’t make it black and white.
  • Make sure that the photo you are submitting is yours. This doesn’t mean you took it with your camera. Even if you took the picture with your mom’s phone, then it is still yours. But if your mom took the photo you are submitting it is not considered yours. 😉
  • You can watermark your photo with your blog url. Please don’t make it distracting though.

How your photo will be judged:
I know I talked a little about this in the last post, but I will go into more detail here! (this includes your bonus challenge/photo.

Creativity: This is the main thing I will be judging off of. Don’t just try to copy the example photo be unique and add your own spin!

Category: This is also important. Try to follow the category as well as you can.

Quality: I understand if you don’t have a quality camera. I didn’t for a long time either. As I said above I will be mainly judging on Creativity and Category, and although quality does matter, if you tried your best then that is what counts! 🙂

Have a great Wednesday! Happy Spring (I can’t believe it is almost May)

How do you like the new blog design? I didn’t change the theme, just the header and fonts!

  1. I’m SO sorry I couldn’t enter in this round! It hasn’t been raining for a while and I haven’t really taken any rain pictures before… oh well. 😛 Sorry again, I’ll promise to do in this time! 😀

  2. Hey,
    I am having technical difficulties with the survey. It won’t let me upload the photo for some reason? Should I email the pic to you, or post it on my blog and give you the link?

    1. Sorry about that! I know many people were having trouble with that! Either of the two options you suggested would be fine! 🙂

  3. Oh NO! I was going to be sure to remember to send my raindrop photo in when we were at the library but I forgot. This time I’m determined to remember. I can’t wait to start on this category! Go team leaf!! Thanks again for letting me join!

    1. That’s fine! Actually someone else forgot their photo, so if you still want to submit then just email me your photo and I will add your points to Team Leaf! 🙂


    1. As long as they fit into the category they are fine! 🙂 They don’t necessarily have to be spring related. Unless of course that is specified! 😉
