January Monthly Challenge 2017


    The 5FIA Monthly Challenge is a set of 5 categories which is run and administered through our 5 Fall Into Adventure group over on Flickr.
    It is designed to encourage and inspire our members to get out, capture and post an image in each of the categories.
    At the end of each monthly challenge, the group members give a ‘5FIA Monthly Challenge Award’ to their favourite image in each of the 5 categories. Any member who’s image receives an award earns the right to submit their image to the 5FIA Monthly Challenge gallery.

    In this post you will see the top placed image/s which received the most awards in their respective category. You can view these and all the other images that received an award during all of our monthly challenges in our online gallery

      A good varied selection. The faceless mannequins really have taken on a life of their own and are quite spooky, but excellent photo material.
