Theme: "Daily Commute" - It's the first user-generated contest theme, so do yourselves proud!

Timeframe: Your entry must be emailed to finalgearphoto@gmail.com on or before midnight Mountain Time, February 28th, 2009.
Prize: Bragging rights, and a position in the Winners' Gallery!

Restrictions: Please follow the following restrictions in order to submit an eligible entry.

- Your image must be a maximum of 1000 pixels (height or width), and a minimum of 500 pixels (height or width).
- Your submission email should have the title of the image and "Contest #14" in the subject. Please title your images, as the poll must have some way to distinguish between them - I don't want half the vote options to be "Untitled."
- Also, when you email your submission, make sure you include your FinalGear screen name so I know who's submitting what!
- Only one submission per user. Please do not create multiple accounts to submit more images, as it is 1) unethical, and 2) statistically reduces your chance of winning anyway.
- Your image must NOT contain any borders or signatures or anything to identify the photo as your own. The images will be stripped of EXIF data as to make the vote 100% anonymous. Please do not mention which photo is yours, and please do not post that image anywhere until the contest is over.
- Your image must have been taken after the contest has started, I will not accept old photos that happen to match the subject. This contest is designed to promote creativity, not find out who has the biggest backlog of good photos.
- Your image may be altered in whatever imaging software you choose, without actually altering the content of the photograph. (i.e. you can alter the curves as much as you want, but you can't paste in David Hasselhoff.) Editing out distracting non-content objects such as power lines is also acceptable.
- Please keep the submissions tasteful and without gore/nudity. I like nude photography as much as the next guy, but this is a public forum. Don't submit anything you wouldn't put up in a public area.

If you have any comments or suggestions about the rules of the FinalGear contests, please voice them in the appropriate forum, or in this thread if you want.

When submitting your image, feel free to suggest a topic for the next contest!

Good luck, and have fun!

I'll see what I can do, but I've never had to commute, so I'm not sure I know what it is... :lol:

If only I could get down to the station now. I'd take a photo of all the poor Londoners trying to get in to work... :lol:

This could be difficult, but I'll give it a go. The rules don't say it has to be my daily commute so I'll have to think about it.

I know we have a month to shoot, but if I need to can I submit an image taken after the subject matter became clear in the poll?

I'm kinda confused... can I just take a picture of anything that I see around campus (since that's my daily commute)? Can I submit a picture of the campus pond, for example? Or does "commute" imply the act of commuting, aka I have to snap a picture of a bus or something?

The theme refers to the commute itself, not the destination. :)
