Hi all!
To celebrate my upcoming 100th challenge entry, I have decided to "give back" to the community that has taught me so much. So..... on the night of my 100th challenge ending (which will be July 4th), I will purchase a membership for one of our aspiring funds-challenged non-member photographers.

If you fit this description, or know someone who does... drop a few lines saying why you or they need a paid membership and I will choose from the group suggested in this thread.

Hint: My choice will tend toward the photographer whom I think is most open and willing to learn from the DPC community, this will be key.

That's very generous of you :)
Mine was given to me by Ken as a Christmas gift, and it really made me happy, so I'm sure whoever gets your free membership is going to be really happy and thankful as well!

You are so awesome!

Me! Me! Me!

Ohh!

Rules -

- Aspiring (Nope)
- Funds Challenged (Does this mean I have to be broke?)
- Non-Member (Hmmmm...where did that blue cloak come from)
- Open (Me??? Never)
- Willing to learn...(BAH....not me!)

Awwww....that means I can't nominate myself...no fair...sheshesheshe!!

No seriously...that is a great idea Cindi...good luck in your endeavour and congratulations on making such a milestone.

"WOW what a great gift, re your 100th. challenge to give a free membership to a non member. You rock, idnic.....

I was so lucky to enter a fun competition in January this year, when alfresco offered a free membership to a member. Sirbaz actually won the competition, but gave it to the closest non-member, which just happened to be me.

If it wasn't for "alfresco" & "sirbazz", I would not be a member today.

DPC rocks.....

Good luck to the person who wins this. I have personally learned so much in the past six months re DPC, but most of all, I have gained so many wonderful new friends.....

Hmm... wouldn't that person already paid for such a membership himself, no matter how fundedly challenged he may be? Still a noble thing to do though :)

I would like to be in on this. I have only paid for one month because I can't afford to pay by the year right now. Bills and rent are just to high where I live to spend money for my favorite hobby. I am hoping to come up with the $5 for July. If I can't I will just FREAK OUT!

I am having a blast here at DPC. It's a lot of fun to enter the challenges and receive comments and click that update button. Please take into account that I am adicted. I'm addicted to the update button! SO PLEASE HELP ME by giving me a years worth of fix!!!

100 Challenges... Wow!

Would that make you the most "challenged" one here, Cindi? ;)

Seriously, you're doing a great thing - and congrats on your accomplishment! (I'm just jealous. :)

I think its a great gesture, hopefully you can find someone like crayon that is very appreciative and looking to imporve their photography skills.

:D I aspire to your level, Cam! Really, I have learned so much through my entries. DPC has forced me to challenge myself and it has improved my photography soooooooo much. I just hope to pass on the opportunity to someone who will get as much from the experience.

I'm working on it! Hopefully you will love my Motion Blur and Glass just as much! :)

Umm - Idnic, from one Floridian to another *hugs*, I just got this message today:

Important Notice!

Your membership is set to expire in 21 days. You can renew your membership at any time by visiting the subscription page.

HELP me get rid of that message, Idnic!!! It is SOOOOO irritating!!

:)

I know someone who does, Chikazawa.

He is new to photography, but lives near me, and he is always bugging me to take pictures with him. He is pretty gung-ho but his parents wont let him spend money on a membership. I think he'd really appreciate it.

I also know that he is in Alabama this weekend, so you won't be able to get in touch with him until late sunday i think.
