Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011 IMPORTANT NOTICE: Bit of a change in the RedEye Photo Challenge effective immediately. The Challenge is going to take a break - a month or so, as the specific date of return/relaunch has not yet been determined? So what's going on? Well, your Photo Challenge Founder and Dude® has started a new job with the Chicago Tribune. So while I'm in the same building, I have a new desk and new responsibilities. So rather than piece together a less-than-stellar challenge, we're going to put it on hold. My colleague Jessica Galliart will be taking over my social media duties at RedEye. We'll keep you posted on what happens next. In the meantime, I want to thank every single one of you for every photo you've ever sent. In the 2+ years that this challenge has been around, this was always the highlight of my week. You are all very, very talented. Ok. Onward. And now the matter at hand. Hi, everyone. Photo Challenge guru Scott Kleinberg here. Photo Challenge (theme:change) has come to an end. Change is good and so are these photos ... I love how you all took your own meanings and captured it. Exactly how I would have done it :-) As you may know, taking the top spot comes with some prizes: 1. In conjunction with the Digital Photo Academy, the winner will have the opportunity to attend a workshop in Chicago! The workshops are for people of all levels. You can learn more about the Digital Photo Academy and the workshops at this link. 2. Your photo featured in our gallery on RedEye's website (along with some editor's comments about why your photo was so special). Thanks so much to everyone that participated! We start with the honorable mentions, then go to the five finalists and save the best for last - the winner. Until the next challenge, thank you all again.
