Some Unused Images

In the past, some photos have almost made it into our Caption Competition League (previously email-only), but then not used for one reason or another.
Here are some reasons why some of these pictures were deemed unsuitable.

If you have images you think could be good for future caption compos, it might be worth bearing this in mind. Otherwise just enjoy…

REASONS WHY SOME PHOTOS WERE NOT USED IN CAPTION COMPETITIONS…

1. Already captioned

Sometimes an image is funny because it is itself a caption.

Others already have their own captions that are perfect as they are.

2. Too Drunk

Drunk photos can be a great source of captionable material, however after a while they all tend to look the same, giving rise to the same types of captions.

3. Too Surreal

Some of the best images (in my humble opinion) are silly and/or surreal. Frequently they are uncaptionable though.

Now is that bizarre or what?

4. Too boring

‘Boring’ might be too harsh. These are perfectly fine photographs in themselves, but there’s only so much can be said about images where one or two or three people are simply looking at the camera.

5. Too ‘General’

Photos with a lot going on are usually hard to captionise.

6. Too Leading

Often an image can at first seem perfect, but once you think about it, there is just one -or one type of caption that can or would end up on there. …We need images that inspire an array of captions.

7. Too Scarey/ Depressing
Do I really need to explain why these were not used?

8. Too Exciting or Funny

Sometimes images would be just spoilt by saying anything.

9. Too Easy

‘Nuff said.

So if you have a photo that you think would work well in a caption competition, why not send it here?
You can earn an extra point in the Caption League for each photo that is used.
