What inspires you? Is it literature? Is it people, animals, or objects? Do words or actions inspire you? What makes you stop and think? Show us where you find inspiration & creativity. I want to see what you're made of.^^
The purpose of this contest is to judge the best job a member can do in creating a personal album under a specific theme.
Before you submit make sure you read the Rules
and if you want to discuss anything about the AotW contest please do so here: Discussion Thread.
How to make your album:
1. Every week a new theme will be announced and you will have to create your album based on that theme.
But you also need to choose a style for your album, anything at all, for example:
Black and white, only from one website, avatar pictures, only .gif pictures etc. It can be anything, but you have to chose a style and mention that style at the title of your album like this: "AotW #1, only black & white".
2. You can add 12-18 pictures, no more - no less, and all pictures must respect the forum's rules. If one or all your pictures are custom made, please mention that fact under every picture as a comment.
3. After you create your album, you can edit it only until the submission time ends. I will check on the time your pictures are edited.
Your albums will be judged based on:
-Pleasant to the eye.
-Difficulty of finding the pictures.

If you want to take part to this contest but you haven't created your album yet, you can always submit mentioning your username only and then, when you create your album, edit your post here.
Good luck! P.S. Everyone, remember to make your album PUBLIC.
How to take a screenshot:
If you are using a MAC computer:
- To capture the entire desktop, press Command-Shift-3. The screen shot will be automatically saved as a PNG file on your desktop.
If you are using a Windows computer:
- Press "Print Screen" ( the button is usually found next to the "F12" and "Scroll Lock" keys. On laptop keyboards, you may have to press the "Fn" button.) to take a screenshot of the entire screen. Then open Microsoft Paint, paste the screenshot and Save.
Unfortunately I have been too busy to create my own album (Not as a submission, but just so I can partake in this particular theme and share a bit of myself), so I'll just write a few things:
>The things that inspire me in life are the people who can smile despite being in the worst of circumstances. The ones who rise after being knocked down. The people who endure hardship and overcome their greatest obstacles. We as humans have various struggles and we sometimes face seemingly great amounts of despair. The current events in many parts of the world have led many to give up hope, and that desperation reaches out daily to people of all walks of life.
There are days where even I myself wonder why do I continue on? But there is always something to inspire me to keep pressing on, to never give up hope, to rise again and face the harsh realities of the world, and to stand up for the things that I deem more important than my own well being. To have courage, to be strong, and most of all to be happy no matter what happens. To take each day as it comes and find the good in everything I see.
Life isn't always easy and people aren't always nice, but you can't let the "bad" things stop you from living and remaining happy. It's those good things that inspire me to be who I am and to worry less about the difficulties I often face. Meet each day head-on and don't let anyone make you feel less than a person. At the end of the day, you are who you are, and only you can be that person. As long as you're making the best choices that you can make, then there's no way that you could be a better person, so live without regret and know that you're doing the best you can.
