In terms of timing, we don't insist that the image is taken between the day the magazine goes on sale and the deadline, as in many cases, the challenge is time or season-senstive, and overseas readers - who make up a high percentage of Digital Camera's readers - don't have the same seasons and/or calendar of events as we have in the UK (the Air Shows mission, which will be published in our upcoming issue, is a good example of this).
There's also an issue of policing it: in theory, we could check the exif data for every entry to check when they were taken, but with hundreds of images to judge every month, this would be very time-consuming, and in many cases the data may not even be available, so there'd be no way of checking. In an ideal world, it would be great if it was treated as a 'Mission' in the literal sense, but we realise that this isn't always feasible (it might, for example, be pouring with rain on the day of an air show, for example).
I hope that helps clear things up, but I'd welcome any thoughts or comments.
Hi Paul thanks for your response, indeed the issues raised are based on sound reasoning and i understand what you are saying, However
Mission of the Month!!!!
you have to be joking
, I think a more apt title would be apropriate, Like Themed Photo of the month
Live each day as your last, one day you will be right.
