Monthly Challenge October 2017



    The 5FIA Street Photography 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.​

    The 5 subjects for the month of October 2017 were as follows:

    • 1. Eye Contact (not posed)
    • 2. A Shot In The Dark
    • 3. Body Art / Tattoos
    • 4. Hats
    • 5. POV Over Someone's Shoulder

    The Monthly Challenge Round Up

    The overall top 3 positioned photographers for the monthly challenge in October are as follows:

    • Mister G.C. (8 awards in 4 Subjects)
    • 4d Photo Images  (6 awards in 3 subjects)
    • Nikonsnapper (5 awards in 3 subjects)
    • Steve Snapshot (5 awards in 1 subject)

    For the second month in a row Mister G.C. has to come up with the 5 subjects for December’s MC. It was a close call between 2nd & 3rd place Martin (4d Photo Images) & Ian (Nikonsnapper) with just 1 award in it over the same amount of subject categories.

    This month we had a joint 3rd place with Steve Snapshot joining the list of top placed photographers who achieved an impressive 5 awards in the one and only subject he entered. Nice one…we take our hats off to you. Yes…pun intended :0)

    Since Mister G.C. had one of his images published on the Home Page for coming first last month, this month’s MC Home Page image, linking to this post, will be given to Steve Snapshot for his photograph that earned him the most awards for a single image this month.

    Congratulations, as always, to all of those who’s top images appeared above and also well done to the following members who all received at least one award and can proudly hang their respective images in the Monthly Challenge Gallery
