Hello and welcome to the second Monthly Photography Challenge that will be hosted by Neowin, it used to exist before, but now it does again!

This will be in a monthly format, with a minor exception. The challenge will conclude a [i]week before[/i] the end of the month (24th March, 23rd April etc.) and the voting thread will go up.

That's right, the entered photos will be collected into a single thread with a poll, these will be voted on by everyone and when the poll closes the next theme will be selected.

[b]The theme for this month is Pets, as chosen by last month's winner, Draconian Guppy![/b]

Since I know a lot of people wanted a prize attached to the contest last month, I'm offering up a Captain Kirk 8G USB thumb drive to the April winner! This prize is so awesome that you can't even BUY one right now because they're out of stock until May!!!

Neowin's review of the Mimobots is here: http://www.neowin.net/news/review-mimobot---usb-flash-drives-with-character
Good luck!

I'd just like to add that, if a staff member does happen to gain the most votes when voting opens for this month, that this prize will go to the highest ranked member in succession, as is normal with Neowin's giveaways (In that Staff cannot enter). Said staff member would still choose the following month's theme.

Have fun!

It's a lot easier if we can see it here, without having to go somewhere else! Can a mode fix his hotlink ?

I don't know if there's a way to display the photo here without the owner uploading it to Neowin themselves. It isn't that much of an issue having it externally hosted afaik and 500px/Flickr also show the date taken stamp too which is nice.

They can post the photo on here with EXIF info under the photo. Like they usually do in digital lab forum. Either that or they can post photo with the link to uploaded site with EXIF.

I like to see photos here instead of going outside of Neowin.

I might upload one of my photos here soon.

The brown puppy is a pic I took years ago with a cheap HP point and shoot. The darker puppy was taken with a Samsung smart phone.

I had a visitor a little while ago. He comes by everyday though, because I feed him, thus I consider him a "pet" :)
