So will a DNMC = a DQ in this case?

Otherwise, it's just a portrait challenge and you COULD do a self portrait...

Special rules says you cannot do a Self Portrait. I would assume if it's not of another DPC member it will be a DQ.

Right, but the standing rule of this site is that not meeting the challenge is NOT grounds for DQ.

I think it's a membership drive gimmick. Many will have to get someone else to join just so they have a subject.

That was my first thought too, are we just cynical?

Get a good looking friend to sign up - I assume "registered users" are acceptable rather than full members

It says specifically a portrait of another member. I can only assume that is what it means. Now I need to organize a quick GTG in the St. Louis area!

It says user in the title and member in the description. I dont think there is a difference.

If that distinction was to be drawn then it should not have been posted as an open challenge.

Still does not matter... It could be a photo of a water drop for all it matters.

Post a photo of a human being... you cannot be DQ'd and noone will know during voting it's not a real member.
