Can you say Cinco de Mayo? Should be some great, colorful opportunities out there for anyone who doesn't have a long, fast lens or the desire to shoot sports.

Was thinking that very same thing, Dennis. Lots of great pics. (Hmm, maybe I should stay out of this one, lol!)

Nah, go for it. My prediction -- 300+ sports shots, <150 in cultural events. You should have some great opportunities down there in Texas.

Well, I can't find mention of a single cultural event this week, but the national synchronised swim comp starts today....

is sport not part of our culture? ;P

I would never have equated a sporting event to a cultural event, but I guess "technically" it is. ;-)

I bet they don't score well though.

lol ... i was referring to the other open challenge this week (sports), which i think will get more entries.

I guess you could submit a sports shot as a cultural event ... who knows, maybe you'd win an oobie.

I have a question, does it have to be a cultural event or could it be a cultural feature even if it wasn't an event?

SC had to wait until the snowboard season was basically over to announce a sports challenge, didn't they?

If you're in the neighbourhood (Zaandam, the Netherlands), you can always vist this!

Just a little commercial for myself :-)
An exhibition with some of my paintings and drawings and a lot of others!

I rode the short yellow bus to school... ;-)

I'm finding it impossible to think of a shot to enter. Living in a small town of 2000 people with one main industry and noone is doing anything is making it hard. Plus I am stuck at home for the next week. What to do!?

Edit spelling.

By the way is it considered good or bad manners to edit a post and not note the reason like I have just done?

I have a question,
does this cultural event have to be really happening,
or can you stage one?
And are their any restrictions on religious photographs?

There are no restrictions. The important thing is that your image actually says to the viewer, "This is a cultural event." If the viewers can't see it as a cultural event, then it likely won't work.

Hope this helps.

Woot for once a challenge is perfect timing, I've got a choice of 3 festivals this weekend.

It does.
Thank you very much.

Wouldn't a pub or bar or party count as a cultural event as well? Afterall, that's what we do in our culture. What do you guys think?
05/03/2007 09:39:26 PM · #20
throat culture.

He, he, you can try. The "event" part might fit, I'm not so sure about the "cultural". :)

Is Holy Communion cultural or just religious?

I would think of it as just religious. I don't know how others might see it.

I'm out of ideas.
Stupid boring town..
