The theme for the May photo competition is "Places of worship" (proposed by Dirty-flow). This covers any photo of all kinds of holy places, buildings people come to pray, open-air religious sites and associated for all religions.
You may make your submission as an answer to this post. The standard rules for photo contests apply:
- Up to three photos per answer. Photos in the same answer should be of the same place of worship, which can be one building or a group of buildings, or something quite a bit smaller, like a statue or statuette.
- You can make up to three posts (attempts).
- Do not delete posts if you don't get votes: you posted it, stand by it. (You have two more attempts if your first one doesn't work out.)
- All submissions should have a line with when and where the photo(s) was/were taken, along with a description of the subject.
- The photo has to be taken by the person who posted it, or by a travel partner (needs to be named).
- Keep it nice, non-offensive, and non-NSFW.
- Be respectful to the religion and its worshippers and do not include recognisable people.
- If you disagree with a photo, please consider leaving a comment on it or bringing it up in chat. For the purposes of judging, only upvotes will be considered; downvotes will not affect the score of the photo.
- The photo may have been taken any time.
- The photo competition will begin on the publication of this post, and continue until the end of the month (again in UTC). If there is no tie for the highest number of upvotes at the end of the month, the winner will be announced then; if there is, the voting period may extend beyond the month.
If you'd like to suggest a theme for a future photo competition, please add it to the list of possible photo competition topics.
