Monthly Challenge August 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 August 2017 were as follows:

    • 1. Relaxing
    • 2. Bottle
    • 3. Spots
    • 4. Hands in Pockets
    • 5. 'Y'Shaped
    • ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Monthly Challenge Round Up

    By the looks of things in August, there were a lot of members looking for a challenge. We haven’t had so many images entered into a Monthly Challenge for a long time….a grand total of 40! Great job everyone.

    Next up is a new feature to the group Monthly Challenges. Each month we will list the photographer(s) who received the most amount of awards combined for the images they submitted to that month’s MC.

    The top placed photographer will earn the right to choose the 5 subjects/themes for the next month’s MC. They can either choose the subjects from the list of all the MC subjects/themes that we have had in the past, or even suggest their own subject(s) & theme(s).

    This month the following 3 photographers have each accumulated a combined total of 7 awards. 

    • 4d Photo Images,
    • Phil Anker
    • Mister G.C.

    However due to the fact that Martin (4d Photo Images) managed to submit a Super Combo and was also the photographer who had the most amount of images this month eligible for posting to our group gallery (a total of 4) means that he will have the right to choose the subjects/themes for October’s MC.

    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
