Congratulations again to the winners from our last photo challenge!  We got such a great response from the open format of the last challenge that we’ve decided to keep an on-going free-for-all category.  During each challenge period we’ll pick a winner in the free-for-all category and a winner in our themed category.  This time around we’re looking for your best seasonal themed macro or close-up shots!  We’ll accept anything with a holiday or winter theme.  The challenge will run from now until January 1st.  Our 2 winners will be the first the receive our brand new Close-Up Project T-shirts!  The shirt designs are still in the works but we’ll be announcing more about them in the near future.

As usual, In order for you photos to be considered follow these simple steps:

  1. Take some macro or close-up shots of anything you want!
  2. Use any post-processing techniques you wish to perfect your image
  3. Join and  upload your macro or close-up photographs to our Flickr group
  4. Submit your entry by January 1, 2014

Upload as many images as you’d like.  The only rules are that the image must be considered macro or close-up.  In early January we’ll select a winner from both categories who will receive a free t-shirt as  well as having their work featured in an upcoming post on site.  Good Luck!
