It's that time again.
A new photography competition is in the works as you read these lines. On this occasion we thought it was time to introduce a bit of challenge and narrow the range of pictures we all get to choose from.

The theme: Portages.

That's it. Portages. Anything and everything that has something to do with a portaging or portage trails is fair game.

(note that photographs of the wonderful town of Portage La Prairie or Portage Avenue in the Keystone province's capital don't cut it.)

This autumnal photo contest will follow the same model as the previous contests while maintaining the 3-vote system.

Here are the rules of the contest:

One picture per person. Any picture related to portages and/or portaging is fair game and there is no restriction as to when the picture was taken.

Photos should be no smaller than 640 x 480 and no larger than 800 x 600. (If you are unsure how to resize your photos,this thread contains some helpful advice. )

  • Email your picture to Neilluck @ videotron.ca (no spaces before or after @)
  • Put "Portage photo contest" (without quotes) in the subject line so my email program will automatically sort it into the correct email folder.
  • Indicate your screen name right at the top of the email body text, above the picture. (these little details make lighter work)
The submission period runs from today until September 30th, 2010. Voting period to follow.

Most of my portaging photos are of stuff along the way, not really pertaining to the portage itself. I will scour though, I know I have some somewhere. :D

Um, yeah......
Regardless of what is thought about us dimwit Albertan rednecks, we do know how to read. :roll: 8)

A photo of a bird, stream, or the like, does not necessarily fit with the portage theme. Heck, one could pass off just about any backcountry shot then. :)
This is what I was thinking, sorry I did not explain myself clearly.

Well I guess the picture should be somewhat, uh... portagey or portagesque.

Seemed better than portagilogical and it respected both official languages.

Hey folks, keep the pictures rolling in.

Could there be a correlation between the number of pics received (not very many) and this thread?
