Submit up to nine (9) images relating to the list of target subjects below. One image per subject ONLY. Note that this Hunt has an over-arching main theme: ‘Celebration,’ meaning that all images should relate to the Celebration theme AND also capture the essence of the target subjects (plus normal judging criteria: originality and creativity; photo technique and/or quality ; overall impact and artistic merit). And FYI: ‘Celebration’ means: to commemorate (holiday, anniversary, etc.) with ceremony or festivity. It’s the observance of a feast day, holiday, special occasion, etc. This means not only are holidays like Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Years very suitable, but also weddings, anniversaries, festivals, etc. *BUT* the images MUST be captured/taken between the dates of Dec 8, 2012 – Jan 2, 2013.
