Blogtoberfest Day 9 - Ready for an Artistic Challenge

Blogtoberfest Day 9 - Hello dear readers - some exciting news today - I extend to you the opportunity to undertake a 14 Day Artistic Photography Challenge! 

Maddabling is hosting a special 14 Day Photo Challenge which will start on Saturday 13th October 2012. Below you will find a list of the topics for each day. As you will see, the topics are quite broad and definitely open to the artistic interpretation of the person behind the camera lens. 
Combining a love of blogging, photography and music, this special 14 Day Photo Challenge is based on Album Titles from the Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time as compiled by Triple J Radio: 


It is also to celebrate Blogtoberfest, which this year is hosted by the ever so lovely 
Kat at the i saw you dancing blog 

The only RULE is - ALL photo's must be taken on the day, no holiday pics from a couple of years ago etc, the challenge is the immediacy of it and working with what you've got! 

If you wish to participate, you will be required to post your photo or a public link to your photo each day on the event page that has been created by Maddabling through the Maddabling Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/Maddabling

All photos will be collated and published each day on the Maddabling Blog so we can all see each others photos. 

NOTE : all copyright remains with individual artists
