NEW CONTEST: Going in Circles

Overheard conversation at the fair this week:

Woman 1: I just want to be in better shape. You know?

Woman 2: Oh, I'm in fine shape. I do believe I'm a perfect circle.


I am a fan of the circles and their three-dimensional cousins, the spheres. Here are some of my favorites: peach pies, hoop earrings, my head as drawn by the youngest.

Your mission: There are a lot of good-looking, perfect circles (or spheres) and imperfect circles (or spheres) in this here county. Show us, in the form of a photo or three taken right here in fabulous Forsyth County.

Specifics:
  • ALL PHOTOS MUST BE ORIGINAL WORKS.
  • You MAY enter more than one photo.
  • Email me the photo(s), and I will upload it/them to this post so all can enjoy.
  • You MAY submit a previously submitted, non-accoladed photo.
  • Your entry constitutes a one time use grant (two if you garner judge praise). You retain ownership of your work.
  • You are solely responsible for any damages arising from your entry, as well as any tax concerns should you win.
  • Entries deemed as inappropriate by yours truly will not be considered.
  • Do not add a signature or watermark to your photo.
  • Contest entries must be received by 5 pm EST on Friday, October 16th 2009.

Judging:
An esteemed and well-shaped judge or two will select one winner. Not a consideration: photographic skill. Your entry will be judged solely on that intangible quality we call je ne sais quoi. (That's a fancy way of saying "Whichever wind blows the judge's skirt up.")

Prize:
A $10 giftcard to Target, whose logo is made up of many concentric circles.

GOOD LUCK, Y'ALL!
