Hi all, I hope your turkey is nearly ready to be eaten!

I've just received by the post a package from Sony with a letter inviting us, me and you guys readers of my blog, to take part to Sony Photo Challenge, an 'Open Category' of this year Sony world Photography Awards.

What's the idea?

Each week, there is a challenge to be taken, our task is to upload our shot to a Flickr page where it will be judge by a pro photographer. The winner of each week will receive a Sony NEX-5.

So guys, lets get set and here is what you need to do:

  1. take a great shot in the subjects stated below.
  2. upload your shot on this Flickr page.
  3. and VERY IMPORTANT, tag your Flickr photograph with 'SonyPhotoChallenge' and 'QHPhotography', this will allow Sony to keep score of each community.
  4. Post a link to your image in the corresponding Flickr discussion thread.

Subjects and dates and Flickr discussion thread:

  • Nature: entries open from 15/12/10 to midday GMT on the 21/12/10
  • Travel: entries open from 22/12/10 to midday GMT on the 28/12/10
  • People: entries open from 29/12/10 to midday GMT on the 04/01/11

Good luck to every one!
