This is the official thread for submitting theme ideas for the Picture of the Week. Generally speaking, there will be about 11-12 "open" theme weeks a year. Some theme weeks will be predetermined, such as during Christmas time or other key holidays (we WILL try our best to accommodate global holidays wherever possible, not just US holidays.) Whenever a theme week rolls around (or rather, a couple weeks ahead of time) we will take the top-voted idea from this thread, move it to the archive thread, and start a theme announcement thread linked from the PhotoSE header. If, for any reason, a theme week is canceled or a theme idea is determined impractical for that week, it will be returned to the pool here, and the next highest one used.
Rules for Submitting Ideas
- ONE idea per answer
- Multiple answers per member ARE allowed
- Check the Picture of the Week Theme Idea Archive first
- Don't submit ideas that have already been done
- Duplicates will be deleted (so check this thread first, too!)
- PhotoSE is an unrestricted public site that the underage can visit
- Please keep ideas civil and legal!
- Vote up for the ones you like!!
As with the PotW contest, please refrain from down votes. If a particularly offensive theme is suggested, that is a time to flag for moderator attention and comment.
