Take something that you find to be inherently UGLY and turn it into a piece of art through your photography. I'm talking literally butt ugly(no butts though please or other specific body parts). Voters should put as much weight on the repulsiveness of the subject matter as he/she would on the composition, lighting, framing, etc.

Sounds interesting but also like a waste of time :)

We already had a garbage challenge. Kind of the same thing. And REALLY hard to vote on.

Goodie! I could do a self portrait.

Now that sounds like a challenge! Not that the pictures would be pretty to look at... but at least it would really make us think. AND we wouldn't (or shouldn't) have flowers, pets, etc. :)

Is this Isaac's dog? That's one wrinkly puppy and that makes him ugly but cute at the same time.

No, I just did an image search for "Shar-pei" and this was the first photo I tried to link to, and it worked. I was just being contrary, trying to demonstrate that there is no challenge topic used or yet devised which will exclude pet photos...
