It's almost time for the Summer 2013 Decisive Challenge street shooting competition and I thought I'd ping the forum members to see if there's a preferred date.

Please pick your favorite date range. The contest will again take place over an entire weekend.

Note: I'm also putting out a call for prizes. For the December event there were some incredibly generous donations, including Leica, Olympus & Agfa cameras. If you would care to donate either PM me or post in this thread.

I was out of town for the P&S challenge for quite a long time so I couldn't follow up with my promise to give a prize.

I will give a prize for this Challenge. For now it will be a Like New (no more then 5 rolls through) Nikon F-401X Body, 4 mini soft-releases and something extra.I will dig out some nice stuff.

Always the troublemaker Roland ;)

Truth be told I'm giving myself a little time to build a custom image display and voting site.

Anything but the 20/21 weekend. And since I'm the most important person here at RFF, I expect you'll cross those dates off the list. Much appreciated.

P.S.: Some suggested rules for the competition:
1) No film cameras allowed. This is the 21st century, after all.
2) No manual focus cameras allowed (Zone focusing makes it too easy to capture Decisive Moment).
3) All photos must include a cat, a flower, or lots of empty foreground.
4) All rights to future use of the images are deemed solely owned by Getty, or the contest manager (whoever declares 'dibs' first).

No, just selfish (see http://sfpride.org). I'll donate something nice if you pick Jun 30 :)

In honor of our very own Ferider I'll also make June 29th & 30th an option. Unfortunately I can't alter the poll so if you want that weekend please say so in this thread.

Whoa, whoa! If we change the schedule just so Roland can beat us up with that 75mm Summilux Decisive Moment machine, then I say he has to pick up the beer tab at the end of the day!

Thank you Joe and Kent.

Jamie, paying for a few beers is no problem, as long as it is not in the MOMA coffee shop :)

OK... I admit it... I can be bought. June 29-30 is OK with me as well. But cats or flowers only, right Kent? Kent? D**n... ignored again!

I voted July 13th before Bak Alley added the June date.

Please account my vote for the June date and take it off the July 13th date.
