Here are your categories:
Rules and FAQ

  • pumpkin
  • curve
  • black
  • leaves
  • nail

For social media (Pinterest board, Google+, etc.) use #FCAPoctober2012.

Let us know you are participating by joining the Facebook event.

For this month, prize is only for the top winner. Prize will be announced later. 

Judge will be announced at a later date. Rest assured, the judge will be a professional photographer not from this area (unless it is me).

All category winners, as well as the top winner, will receive a special FCAP graphic to display on their website (or blog, Etsy listing, etc.) that they are a winner.

This round will be for October. Submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. on October 21st.

Submission guidelines:

  • All images must be submitted by email only. Please email to Be sure to attach all 5 files in one email.
  • Name your file with your initials and the category (i.e. TMwild.jpg)
  • Please resize your image to 1000 px on the long side. If you could change the dpi to 72dpi, I would greatly appreciate it. This will make your file size around 1mb to 1.5mb. (PicResize is a free online tool if you don't have a program at home to do it.)

Here are the rules again, as well as answers to most questions. If you have a question that is not listed, please post a comment below or on Facebook, or email Note that I updated the time frame of when the submitted images can be created - you may now use photos taken from up to 2 months before the current round. Also, images must be submitted by email to be included in the judging.

For inspiration, here is a list of entries from previous months.

If you would like to sponsor a future month, or know of someone you can ask, please let me know! Just email with the information.
