The topic for this contest is Tradition. Show me a tradition of your family, locale, country, religion, anything. The rules are: The photographs must be of your own creation. Explore, get creative and have fun with it. You may only submit one photo per weekly contest round. Please do not comment on any photos until after the judging has taken place. The contest runs for one week, starting NOW! At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as they possibly can. If the Judge is unable to complete the selection within 48 hours of the deadline for close, then a vote will be carried out to select a winner. This will be based on the number of "likes" each image has. In the event of a draw, the second place winner from the previous week will choose the tiebreaker. The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place). Fireworks are traditional worldwide, but us Utahs get to enjoy them twice in the summer: once for the Fourth of July and again later in the month for Pioneer Day. My wife and I have a tradition of not buying fireworks because we hate to see our hard-earned cash go up in smoke. There are always others who love spending hundreds on fireworks, so we enjoy watching theirs.
