Do you need to buy the thing you take the picture with for certain tasks? For example the maple syrup task? Or could you take a picture in the store then put it back?

Yup, taking a picture in the store with the required object is fine. :)

Do you have the equivalent paper currency for any other small amount? That could work. Or if not, you can just use two £5 notes, a £10 and a £20. :)

Nope. As I said £1 notes aren't in circulation anymore. So the smallest in notes that we have is £5 :/

And as I said, if you don't have paper currency in a small amount, you can just use two £5 notes, a £10 and a £20.

Announcement to all participants. Please read. This is very important.

Please note that according to the contest rules, you must have your whole face (not half your face), in every photo. Otherwise, your photo will be disqualified. If you make a mistake in one photo, that photo will be disqualified. You will not be disqualified from the entire contest.

Also. The rules have been tweaked and specifications have been added. Loopholing is not allowed. It is up to you to follow the rules and do every task correctly.

As of today, I will no longer be telling people what they're doing wrong in their photos. It will be up to participants to read the rules carefully and follow them exactly as specified.

Thanks everyone! Have fun! :)

Granny Smith apples are the only ones I can find here in Canada that are green, which is why I specified this variety in the task. I am trying not to tweak the rules too much, so I think i will leave this rule as is. Hopefully you will be able to do some of the other tasks that feature green items. Good luck! :)

3. You with a real house/mobile home that is entirely green. (Cannot be a toy house.)

For this this task are you just looking for the outside of the house to be green all the way around? I've found several houses in which the actual house itself is green, but the things people add as accents to the outside (like shutters) are not green. Does the shutters and everything have to be green or just the actual house?

114.  You among local weeds taller than your head.

Can there be some leniency on this one? I have been all over multiple towns looking for really tall weeds and I haven't been able to find any weeds that are taller then Zach's head, probably because he is 6'1". :lol: We've come across a few that are really tall, just not taller then his head. More like shoulder length to him.

It's fine if just the house itself is green. I will need to be able to see a as much of the house as possible though to make sure the house is green on more then one side.

Ooh, yeah, it's fine to just use really tall weeds. I'm only 5'4", so "shoulder height" compared to Zach is "really tall" compared to me. So as long as they're taller than say, 5'0", that works.

130. You beside a chest in an antiques store.

Can you specify or show me the type of chest you are looking for? We speant over 2 hours in 2 different antique stores and only came across two things that stated they were chests.
