The winner whose image gathers the most votes between the poll here and HERE on Mirrorlessons.com (don’t forget to vote for your fave on both!) will not only choose our theme for September’s challenge, but will be entered into our semi-annual giveaway.

The previous 6 monthly winners of each individual challenge will be put up for a new vote soon.  We will all get to vote for our favorite overall image with the winner receiving a Topaz Plugin of their choice, and a handmade T&T Garda Wrist strap.

With September’s challenge, the cycle starts again and in 6 months time, we will have 6 new monthly winners vying for free prizes.  There are no restrictions on participating in our monthly challenges.  All you need to do is submit an image in the TRP Flickr Group and Mirrorlessons Flickr Group discussion threads as they open for the particular month.  Vote and stay tuned for our next challenge.

Thanks to Heather and Mat from Mirrorlessons and everyone who has continued to provide us with beautiful, inspirational imagery and stay posted for next month’s challenge!  Our photography family continues to grow with each month, and that my friends is awesome.  Keep being inspired and push that creativity.

Happy shooting,
