Round Robin Anniversary Challenge: The Best of RRPC!

This challenge is now closed. Thanks for playing. :)

Happy, Anniversary, Robins!

As you may have guessed from the subject line, the Round Robin Photo Challenges are two years old this month! Yes, on the weekend of April 2nd, 2005, Carly and Karen challenged each other to photograph "A Special Part of Your Hometown." There were three of us for the next Challenge, "Tacky Hometown Souvenirs," and the whole thing just took off from there.

So, in honor of our two year anniversary, we're interrupting our usual rotation of topic suggestions for a special "Best of the Round Robin Photo Challenges" Challenge, with a posting date of Wednesday, April 18, 2007. Whether you've been a Robin for two years, two minutes or any length of time in between, this is your chance to play along with any past Challenge of your choice. Have you a photograph to share of "Mysterious Doorways," or would you prefer to show us some "Silly Animals?" Perhaps spring and Easter have you thinking about "New Life," "Flower Power" or all things "Holy." Have you "Secrets" to reveal or conceal in photographs, or would you rather display "Reflections", or tell us about "Who I Am in Black and White" or "The Animal Inside?" There are dozens of topics to choose from - four dozen, to be exact - and they're all on the sidebar. Pick one that appeals to you, and get ready to give us a blast from our collective past on Wednesday, April 18th. We're looking for new photos here, but to go with the old topics. Got it? Good!

As always, you have six days from the Challenge date to get your entry in, but it's best to post on the 18th (and no sooner, please!). In celebration of this fun thing we do together, Steven will be putting together a WooHoo slide show of a photo from each Robin's entry, right here on the RR blog. If you have more than one photo in your entry, and there's a particular one you want us to use or not use in the WooHoo, just let us know!

Oh, and we have some fun goodies to help us celebrate! Steven has turned our Round Robin birdie into four new "badges" you can display on your blog! Go here to grab them:

Okay, folks, here are the usual helpful hints:

1. Please RSVP in the comment thread of this entry, thus:

Yes, I'll be celebrating!

Joy to You And Me
2. Please post your entry on Wednesday, April 18th. A few days later is okay, but do not post early!

3. Please include a link back here in your entry. If you want to also include the Linking List to your fellow Robins, that's even better!

That's it for now, Robins! We've been saying it for almost two years: go be photographers!
