Verity Photo Challenge

  1. PixelElated

Calling all shutterbugs! Scavenger hunting meets creative photography in the new Verity Photo Challenge. It’s easy to play along by taking photos based on the list of words/phrases provided weekly, beginning this week. After you’ve taken your pictures simply upload them to our group pool on Flickr. The name of our group is PixelElated. Here’s how it works:

  • Join our group by sending a message to Nettle either through Flickr (nettle.verity) or email (nettle at and you’ll be sent an invitation.
  • The words/phrases and upload deadline for the current week will be posted on the Group page.
  • Each word or phrase represents 1 photo you will take. You can choose 1 word/phrase from the list, choose a few or take a picture for each one. (Note: the picture(s) must be taken by you specifically for the week’s challenge.)
  • Upload your photos by the deadline and browse and comment on the pictures taken by the other members of our group.
  • An example: Let’s say a word on the list is “orange”, so take a picture of something orange, maybe a construction barrel or a pair of orange socks. You can stop there or go for another word/phrase on the list, let’s say “Made of Paper.” Now you’ll take a picture of something made from paper. After you’ve taken pictures of all the words/phrases you want it’s time to upload them to our group pool

This is a really simple and fun game with no right or wrong way to take your picture. The concept was introduced to us by Tinylock and it’s a way for us to enjoy ourselves by capturing the world through our lenses, sharing it with our friends and appreciating the unique ways we each interpret the challenges.

If you have any questions feel free to pop in IRC or send Nettle a message. We look forward to seeing you soon!


  1. Okies, well I now need more help… how is it that I can figure anything out except this darn website.. >< /sigh..
    Ive been trying to post pictures.. and it keeps giving me this message

    "We can't add that to the group because it's either already in the group, is in too many groups, or doesn't follow the rules of this group."

    any suggestions?

    • Wow.. Nevermind..
      Just figured out that I have to upload it to both my stream and the group immediately… it seems to be the only way it will allow me to upload to the group..

      Sorry for all the hubbub..thanks for the patience..

        • Waiit… that is what I was doing before and it was giving me the error… until the last one i loaded i said load to my stream AND group and that is the only way I could post to group.. >< It would make more sense to do it from my stream but alas I am apparently Flickr-unabled and my data-collector/processor does not compute.. lol
          whatevs.. I figured it out to a point where I can load I shall be happy with that :) <3 Just gotta get some pics up in time this time lol

  2. Eri, you didn’t get my Yahoo email? :( grrrr…I’ve sent you at least 5 emails. We voted to make our group private in case we posted personal pics, that’s why you can’t find us. Message me here on the guild website with your Flickr name and I’ll send your invitation asap. You’ll get the invitation in your Flickr message box.

  3. :(… yea so depressed and dissapointed that i have no access and cant find anyone or get access to this or get any emails or anything :( i dunno wtf.. i find flickr rather dumb in that I cant request to be part of the group rather i am just told i dont have permission to view this page.. I search nettle cant find her .. search the group cant find it.. dunno how to reach anyone and just grrr. l

    now that thats off my chest.. yay for neat pictures my imagination is definately showing off all the creativity i assume my wonderful guildies have :)
