Hi all,

Just a quick note to say that today marks a year since the project began and the end of the fortnightly challenge cycle. Where did those 12 months go?!

The group pool will remain open for another three weeks, closing on Thursday 27th March at 9pm GMT. Hopefully that's enough time to catch up on any missed challenges and to tackle the rather tricky challenge #26!

We've removed the limits on the number of posts allowed into the pool per week but the submissions must still have been taken in response to the brief of course. It's the expectation that most images posted to the group will be newly created.

Head on over to this thread for news on what's coming up in the next few months :

Thanks all, 'see you' all in three weeks when the project draws to a close (till year 3).

Hi all
Some of you may have noticed my absence. It has not been because of anything related to the group. Instead, my life has grown extremely busy due the demands of my contracting business over the past 6 months or so. I have missed responding to the various challenges and subsequent comments and discussion following the posts. One of the things I have missed the most are the critical assessments of not only my work, but of all posts by the members. Having to think through the challenges and then having to re-evaluate my efforts in response to group member's criticisms has been an invaluable stimulus to foster my personal growth as someone interested in image making. So, in response to my partial participation, I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to the group and especially those who responded to my contributions with thoughtful feedback. I wish everyone the best in their photographic endeavors. To twist a phrase form TV's Star Trek, "Live long and be prolific."
Cheers ALL and Thanks!

Having joined the group part way through the year, it quickly became my favourite group. Finging a way to respond to each challenge, and then receiving usefu feedback has been a joy. I I have learned so much from fellow members' photographs, and following coMments on them too. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the group for their part in making it what it is, and hopefully I'll see you on the other side in the Summer

Hi thanks for another good year and sorry I am so late with submissions!. The instructions definitely linger and make an impact. I know personally I find the more intimate ones tougher to show and to do, and always admire those that can reveal that side of themselves. I did take ones of eg my family sleeping, but I for some reason cant step over that bridge to share them. Also the one instruction that has freaked me out (in a good way) is 26 by 26 #20 If for some reason you were told you would not be around when your children were adults, what image would you create for them?— Elinor Carucci. I would want am image either really beautiful or really funny and I feel that I could not produce that image right now as it is too important a one to do without a lot more thought, sorry if nattering away here - should go into the thread on that one to look at what you all said. Anyhu thanks and totally will stay on top of it next year (though I think I said that last year also) and look forward into delving into the group and commenting more
