The Challenge for September is ....... HOLIDAYS.

Stretch the theme as far as you like - in any medium or visual art form. If you'd like to enter just email your image (.jpeg or .jpg file) to Cecilia at gasmonthlychallenge@gmail.com - by the 20th of September, and please make sure you give her your full name in your email. And the boring stuff -

- Just one entry per person please

- A .jpeg or .jpg file - not a link to your website

- If you ask your friends to look at your entry ask them to put a like against ALL the entries that catch their eye - Challenge is for fun and we want the best entries to win

- Please be aware of Copyright - (Ugghh! I hear you gasp). Sorry, but it's really important that you don't get yourself - or GAS - into Copyright trouble. We're all influenced by works of other people and in most cases (I'm not a lawyer, mind) it's OK to practise by copying the work of others. If however you put something which is a close copy of someone else's work up for sale or enter it in a competition, you could well - and quite inadvertently - breach the laws of Copyright. For information please click on the Gallery tab on the GAS website where you will find guidance and useful links. Please don't therefore enter a painting in Challenge which is a close copy of another artist's work - even if you painted it yourself.

And Finally - From You To Us!

If you'd like to make a comment or suggestion please send us an email ds4GasPipeline@gmail.com - we'd be glad to hear from you!

Take Care - and See You Next Month!
