You'll love this assignment!

They say hobbies keep us active and occupied, enhance our creativity and stimulate the brain, generate good mood and positive thinking. Phyllis McGinley used to say that “A hobby a day keeps the doldrums away.”

You already have one hobby, photography, so use it to capture other activities we usually undertake for fun, relaxation and pleasure, use your photo hobby to capture HOBBIES.

Since we said hobbies are about undertaking activities, this is exactly what we want to see. We want to see you in action while knitting, scrapbooking, cooking, skydiving, coloring, bowling, painting, crocheting, dancing, sculpting, woodworking, stamp collecting, making pottery etc. We're not interested in seeing the baked pie or the crocheted hat you get in the end, we want to see you working to make these. Here are the instructions for this easy do-it-yourself project: take a hobby, give it to one or more people, get them outside or inside, add some happiness and enthusiasm, mix them together and ACTION. Hobbies are about taking a break and enjoying free time so pay attention to the hobbyists ' expressions. They should be having fun, should be relaxing, should enjoy whatever hobby they're pursuing. Hobbies are also engaging and many of them involve commitment so showing amateur astronomers engrossed in star gazing or an occasional juggler concentrated on impressing neighbours with latest tricks will also do. We've also heard that photography is the only hobby where you can shoot people and cut their heads off without going to jail so get creative, this is what hobbies are supposed to do :P

Best shots of hobbies in action will be rewarded with $300 (first place), $200 and $100 (runner ups) for the winners to enjoy even more leisure time and/or hobbies. We're also giving the best hobbyists our Dreamstime branded t-shirts, suitable for any hobby, indoors or outdoors.

Good luck!

I know that Editorial images were allowed for the Mobile Devices assignment, are these going to be allowed for all assignments going forward? Thanks, K

It is not the case with contest, editorial images were only allowed due to the nature of that assignment. But with this theme it is not the case.

Well Robin stock is growing feathers at the moment. Then come the wings and then the flight. ;)
I'm really excited with this one, my first assignment attempt. I'd be happy if someone buys my level 5 image anyway. Lol

@Wisconsinart: Lots of opportunities for "girl watching" for us photographers. Models can't tell us not to look at them.

I have 4 photos approved. If I will win, the bear (for male photographers) and hot chocolate (for all women in my kingdom) will be FOR FREE for 3 days and 3 nights.
Also, I will give my small daughter to be the wife to an editor (sell the rights forever).

I am sure I will win the first 3 places but I am very sad that my fourth image will lose. I beg the great Emperor, Serban, to make 4th place just for me this time. Thank you. Peace on you.

P.S. Photos are here: http://blog.dreamstime.com/2013/03/05/four-photos-approved-in-this-assignment_art38775

As I said at every assignment, I want a special prize, a symbolic one, BUT FROM THE EDITORS. It will be much easyer for beginers to understand what DT expect from us.
Hope, someday, DT will read what the King wrote. :)
