The Julia+fBm Challenge Has Been Temporarily Closed
Due to many unforeseen difficulties people have experienced with the wording of our instructions for this challenge, we have regretfully brought it to a close. We apologise to those of you who have already taken part, but unless we write the rules again in a much more precise form and reduce the options that were left open for people to play with, it just isn't going to work. We are finding ourselves as a Team having to make more and more explanations about what it is we are really looking for. This is not putting us in a good light, as we are becoming perceived as challenge police, but worse than that, it is upsetting our valued members when they are asked if they would do something again leaving this out or adding that in. Challenges are meant to be fun, at the same time as a means of learning to do something previously not thought of.
We are currently discussing what to do about challenges in general, so that everyone is happy and the whole experience is a pleasant one.NOTE:
Some of the submissions would be suitable for the Spring Challenge. If you would be happy to have your submission moved to that folder instead - and you feel it represents that season well, please let us know and we will do it for you.
The Spring Challenge is still running - no parameters required by us for inspection, although sharing them publicly is encouraged. We just ask that you seriously consider how Springtime looks to you and see how you can represent it.Here is a reminder of the rules for the Spring Challenge:
This is a very free style challenge. Just send us your artistic interpretation of spring.
The only restriction is that you do not use image imports. All other facilities in UF can be used.
You do not need to show your parameters for this challenge, although we encourage you to share them.
Submit your entries to the April-May Spring Challenge Folder
