BIBPC the Third


I’m so excited for the return of BIBPC. (To tell you the truth, I started writing this at the beginning of July) I know a lot of you guys know about BIBPC, but in case you don’t, here’s what it is.

BIBPC (Boring Into Beautiful Photography Contest) is a contest where photographers under 20 (I’d like to make this a challenge for younger bloggers) can compete with each other. You will be organized into teams and given a category to take a photo of. When you have taken the photo you can post it on your blog or, if you do not have a blog, I will get up a way that you can submit your photo, no email required.  I will look at each photo and grade it on quality, creativeness, how hard it would have been to get, and how well you stuck to the category.

If you want to enter.

Comment saying what two teams you would prefer to be on. I may not be able to get everyone onto their most wanted team. Also, it would be helpful to say if you have a DSLR camera, a digital camera, or a phone/iPod.



  1. Look for post to say which team you are on and what the category is. That post will be on August 6th.
  2. Take a picture for the category I posted. It can be taken three years ago or that day, as long as it is taken by you.
  3. Post your picture on your blog and if you want, tag it ‘BIBPC photo’ (only if you have a WordPress blog) then send me a link to your post.
  4. After four days I will post the team’s points and the next category. BIBPC should end around September 5th. There will be 7 categories.

How to Get Bonus Points For Your Team:

  • Make your subject start with the letter B. ~ 2 points
  • Write a little bit about how you got the photo. ~ 1 point

And now, presenting… THE TEAMS!

Team SmoothieTeam PopsicleTeam Ice CreamTeam Lemonade


And now, for the big question: WILL YOU ENTER? XD


We looked at a two million dollar motorhome. We are TOTALLY buying that. XD 😛 No, I’m kidding. We are not millionaires. 😀

  1. I’ve never done this before, but have known about it. I would love to give it a go! My preferred teams would be ice cream and smoothie 🙂 .
    I have my smartphone for my pictures, and it’s possible that I would want to use a pic from my old iPod touch or my Mom’s phone.
    Also, do you have to post the picture the day that you give the category, or can you post it within the four days before you post the results? I’m wondering because I’m going on vacation and should be coming back on the sixth.
    Looking forward to it!! 😀


      1. MEGANMEGANMEGAN!!! Hiii!! I’d LOVE to do BIBPC again! Sorry I’m so excited XD
        Team Ice cream or smoothie are my top picks!!


  2. I want to enter sooooooo bad, but I’m leaving for North Carolina to stay with my aunt and uncle for a dance program on the sixth. I’ll be back the twelfth, I think, and I’ll take lots of pictures while I’m down there. I might miss a category of two, but I SHOULD be able to shimmy it in there somewhere. I’ll join!! Team Ice Cream and Team Smoothie are my top choices!! I’m so excited you’re hosting this again!!!! ~Bella
    (Half that comment was me wrestling with my own mind. XD.)


  3. WOO HOO FOR BIBPC!!! 😀 😀 😀
    I’m so excited! I didn’t know you were going to do it this soon! 😀 😀 😀

    I’d like to be on Team Smoothie or Lemonade please. 🙂 I’ll be using either a Canon Powershot or a Canon Rebel for my pictures. Most likely the Canon Rebel.

    YAAAY! I’m SO EXCITED! Thanks for doing this, Megan!

    P.S. I just wanted to let you know that August 6th I have a theater competition (so pumped! 😀 ) and the 7th I have a family reunion. I probably will still be able to get a photo in, but I just wanted to let you know in case. 🙂


  4. Hey Megan.. even though I think I know what you’re going to say, I need to ask. I know you can’t edit it…but does putting it on the ‘closeup’ setting count as ‘editing’??? :/ 😦 Because before, my camera would focus that good on things without the setting, but now that setting really just…helps. :/ Like my camera (it’s digital, btw.) won’t FOCUS on the things. If I can’t, I understand, just thought I should ask! 😉 Wow, looks like you have lots of people entering!


  5. Oh my! I have never entered anything like this but I have decided to take a risk! I am really excited for this.
    I would prefer to be on either team Ice cream or team Lemonade ,please. I will probably use an Ipod to take the pictures. I do have some questions in regard to BIBPC. Are we allowed to edit and add color to the pictures or would you prefer them to be natural lighting? Are these only doll pictures or can we take pictures of anything as long as it is along the lines of the category?
    I am so excited to get started!

  6. I would love to enter again! My team preferences are Team Lemonade and Team Smoothie, although you can put me anywhere. 😉 I have a digital camera: a Nikon D330.
