Welcome to the 2008 Posthumous Open!
I will be hosting the images this year so that anonymity can be kept. Please feel free to comment on these images but please do not mark the images in my folder as a favorite. After the challenge is completed, entrants should upload a version of their image to their portfolio and either copy and paste or quote all the comments into their comments section. Then you can visit that image so that the photographer can keep the favorite. I am not planning on keeping all the images after the end of the open.

I will be uploading entries up until January 31st. I will upload when I have 5 or 6 entries or when I get a chance depending on my schedule.
Not sure how to upload your entry? You can check this thread, Instructions for The Best of 2008 Posthumous Open. For those to lazy to click the link here are the Instructions. :P

DO put your username in the subject line!

Do NOT announce that you are playing.

Do NOT post your photo in this or any other thread.

DO e-mail your photo to jdannels at jmdannels at hotmail dot com.

DO put the TITLE of your photo in your e-mail.

DO keep your maximum dimensions at or under 720 pixels and your maximum filesize under 200K

DO as much or as little editing as you like. Draw the whole thing from scratch if you want. Provide anything that you completed any time in 2008 or this month.

jdannels will post all the entries himself. He will start a thread to do this.

IF you want to JUDGE the challenge, you MUST comment on all the entries. Please DO NOT favorite the photos, as they are being posted by a different photographer than what took 'em.

p.s. jdannels is the coolest person on earth.

I also ask that you put your username in the Title of your email because some of your email addresses go to my junk mail and I want to know it is safe to open.

All images can be found in this folder in my portfolio, Best of 2008 Posthumous Open

Enjoy the images!

Don't know if this thread is for banter, or strictly for images, but just wanted to say thanks, Joe. Really cool!
If the first set of entries is any indication, the judge(s) have a tough job ahead.

Here are today's entries!

Thanks Steve, its fun to see who is who. :)
I don't mind banter.
I haven't figured out the best way to let everyone know who is who after the challenge. Depending on how many entries, I could relist each entry with the username next to it, but that could be a pain if there are hundreds of entries. I am open to ideas. i have a list with the title and username, but that makes it difficult to navigate without embedding a link.

Wow... this will be tough to judge. Kudos to you, Joe, for doing this. You have a tough job ahead of you!

I have more entries to upload, but weekends get a little busy. More entries to come tonight I promise! :)

I like this opportunity to peruse and enjoy the outré.....

I just read most of the comments on all of the photos. Goodman seems to think they are jdannels's photos?
01/20/2009 02:27:12 AM · #12

The three day weekend is over and the booze has worn off. Here are 9 new entries.
I'll let Goodman know. :)

Just one entry for now but a midday bump to let others see the thread. I usually am on at night so maybe some people have missed the thread.
01/22/2009 02:52:15 AM · #14

10 days left to enter. :)
01/22/2009 11:49:06 PM · #15

Only one today.

Thought I would post in the morning today. :)

I am really loving the fact that I can see others comments but the photographer remains anonymous. It doesn't sway my vote in any way but actually allows me more intimate time with the photo.
01/27/2009 11:11:53 PM · #19

Two more for tonight.
01/29/2009 12:08:37 AM · #20

01/31/2009 04:32:43 PM · #21

a few hours left to submit photos!
02/01/2009 01:08:38 AM · #22
These are probably the same people who wait until just before rollover to Submit entries too. :P
This closes the submission phase. I am not sure how long to wait to upload to your portfolio, I'll ask Don, but probably a week or so.

The final submissions for the 2008 Posthumous Open! :)

let's give exactly one week for those who want to give ribbons (anyone who comments on all the pictures can give ribbons). Any time after Midnight DPC-time on Saturday February 7th, people can start putting these photos into their portfolios. I'll try to pick my ribbons sooner than that.
