FotoFriday: The ReLaunch!

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 22, 2013, 11:30 AM
Hello!

Many years ago, when the "old schoolers" still ruled the forums and PoeticWar was a gallery director, we used to have a regular ongoing challenge in the literature community known as "FotoFriday". Although the concept isn't entirely exclusive to deviantART, it was very popular and we have decided it is time to bring it back!

Fotofriday was originally run by secondmagpie, GeneratingHype and RetroZombie (to name a few!). We intend to honour the old school and introduce it to the new!


How does FotoFriday Work?


Every other Friday we will post a photograph from a deviants gallery that we find intriguing and interesting. Using this photograph as a prompt, you are encouraged to write something, anything based on it. It doesn't matter what form of writing, how much you write or even whether you end up with a complete piece- this is all about the prompt and what it spurs!


Are there any rules?


There is only one rule- RESPECT THE PHOTOGRAPHER! At the end of the day, we are using their image and therefore should be offering full credit to them in our artists comments. We also ask that nobody uses the image as a preview image without permission of the photographer.

Please note the CRLiterature team have asked photographers via CRPhotography if we can use their work in this way. If you are a photographer who is interested in their work possibly being used, please sign up via #CRPhotography!


This Week's Photograph...






"Silhouette" by Isalovesphotography



:star: Don't forget that when you have completed your piece of writing to upload it as a deviation and link it as comment in this journal! Next fortnight, we will feature all the completed entries including our top picks!



Remember FotoFriday? We're bringing it back to your weekend!

I just came back to dA after a long hiatus and was wondering how there is no FotoFriday or an equivalent out there! So excited to see that it has been renewed. I loved the old group and even got a DD for one of my submissions (: Good to see it back.

I wrote this ([link]) not long after the journal went up, and now that I'm staring at it, I don't dislike it as much as I did when I posted it. So here!
