The Monthly Theme Contest for December 2015 – Kisses

Monthly Theme Contest


Dear Readers!

It is time for the Monthly Theme Contest for December 2015! The Monthly Theme Contest is a fun activity that anyone can participate in! Every month we choose a Theme. What we ask is for you, our Readers to participate by each sending to us a Street Photograph at based on that Monthly Theme. So for example if the theme is Silhouettes, then we would like you to each send a photo with a Silhouette moment. Your photo can be taken any time in history, we don’t mind, as long as it has been taken by you and nobody else. Once you send us your picture, we will decide which are the 5 or 6 or 10 best ones and we will post them on our website.

What does the winner get?

Once that has been done, the next step is to ask you all to vote for the best photograph out of the ones submitted. The best photograph will earn one spot in the annual 2016 calendar which we hope to print at the end of the year. At the end of the year we will ask you to vote for the BEST of all the 12 photos. The best photo will win a FREE copy of the calendar! We know it is not much, but that is all we can offer. In addition to being in the Calendar, the best photo will also be used as the Street Hunters Cover photo in all our Social Media channels!

What is this month’s Theme?

This month we would like to ask you to participate with Street Photos of “Kisses”. Anything goes as long as it is a Street photograph that focuses on a CANDID KISS. No posed kisses will be accepted in this month’s contest.

Please follow the example of the photo we are sharing with you here.

What are the following months Themes?

This is the last month of the year. December. Which means that we have been successfully doing the Theme Contest for 1 year! Hurray! At this point we usually reminded you what was going to come next, but this time we don’t know. We will confer and come up with a new list of subjects. If we can’t find a new list, we will use some of the previous ideas, but we will try not too! Anyway, you will learn all about the new list in January 2016!

When can you start sending your photos?

You can start sending photos for this month’s Theme Contest from now and the end of the submissions are on the 10th of December 2015 this time.

ATTENTION: This month’s deadline is the 10th of December!

After that and for 10 days, we will setup a Poll to determine the winner. The winners will be announced just before Christmas!!!


  1. Photos must be 1680 x 1116.
  2. Photos must be in Landscape format (The Calendar format requires this).
  3. Photos must be JPG.
  4. Photos can’t have been shared in the SHRC or the Facebook Group before.

  8. Each Reader can send 1 photograph to enter.

Important Note

All winners throughout the year will be requested to send their photos over in High Resolution (8mp = 3,264 x 2,448) by December 2015. Please keep that in mind so you don’t accidentally enter the competition with low res only images from old iPhones or smartphones with low res cameras. If you enter a film snap, then a 5mp = 2,592 x 1944 high dpi scan will do. We will not use your photos for anything else other than this event.   So, don’t just sit there! Email us your photos at now!

Stay Sharp & Keep Shooting!
