Contest - 'Those were the days'

Postby alisonb » Wed Aug 02, 2017 2:41 am

Send in a pic of yourself when you were in your late teens, early 20's. Your pic should depict the 'essence of youth'. Obviously the rule that pic should be taken by yourself will be waived. Thanks for the suggestion Greybeard :D

The deadline for entries is 22 August, the voting poll will be held from 23 - 31 August. All entries to be submitted via personal message to myself, alisonb. The winner will be announced on 1 August.




Good luck all 8)

The reason why I asked that your pic should depict 'the essence of youth' is that voters will be asked to vote for the pic that most captures that 'essence'...so the contest does not become one of who is the best looking/prettiest ;-)

"Youth is depicted as a time of vitality, good health, vigor, freshness, appearance etc".

Send your pics in folks, don't be shy :D

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

Notice that the paper cost 15 cents back then. That was the fall of 1975. I have changed a little since then.
