Vacation Time

Published by Diana Tula · February 25th 2013

Want to get featured on our blog? Every Monday a theme is announced and you have until Sunday to submit your entry. You may already have a photo that suits or you can see it as a weekly photo challenge. This week's theme was: Vacation Time. For announced theme, deadline and how to enter continue reading.

IMPORTANT: We’ve changed entry rules starting this week, please read “How to enter” below.

New theme: Longhorn

Theme is open to your interpretation and creativity, so get snapping and tagging. Deadline is March 3rd at 12pm (EST). To make your efforts worthwhile there’s a random draw giveaway for all who enter for a chance to win 2 months of Awesome membership. This week’s winner is Angie McMonigal.

How to enter

We've changed entry rules, instead of cluttered links that aren't linkable except if copy pasted now to enter all you need to do is add a proper tag. Then on our Search page you can track all entries and see what everyone else is contributing to the competition. Good luck!

1. Upload photo to your 500px profile or pick an existing photo.
2. Add a tag "longhorn500px".
3. You are done :)

Big thanks to everyone who participated!

Hi Sergio, there is no winning photograph. Every week there's a draw from all entries for one person to win 2 month of Awesome — this way everyone who participates could win without being judged based on their photo.

I'm not quite sure if you want me to travel to Texas
and capture some cattle :)

It's pretty hard to interpret the themes if you are not a native speaker.

So I guess it could be just about anything ;)

I really appreciate the effort you put into those challenges
but I think they should be a little bit more defined.
(More like "Vacation Time" less like "Midnight Rhapsody")

It seems like some people are tagging random photos
just to get views – or I'm not getting their abstract interpretation ;)

Take a look at what others are doing to get inspired: http://500px.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=longhorn500px

The idea behind these themes is to ignite your imagination. If you think it should be a Texan Longhorn but don't have a real one available, you can draw or sculpt one of do an abstract interpretation, playing with shape or shadow. Or you can break up the word into "long" and "horn" and make it out to what you want it to be :)

can we just add the tag to a photo that is already uploaded or does it have to be newly uploaded?

Hey Lukas, that's fine too :) As long as that photo/s fit the theme one way or another.
