Default Bananas Quarterly Issue 3 Photo Contest

Time for another one, folks! I'd like to see your best photographs on the subject of BANANAS, please. There will be four winners, and the prize is that you'll see your photo published in Issue 3 of Bananas Quarterly!

Here are the rules:

1. One photo per entrant, please
2. The subject should be bananas - how you interpret this is up to you
3. Post your submission in this thread
3a. You don't have to post high-res to the thread, but please have a high-res copy (300 ppi min.) on hand in case you win
4. Our judges will pick four winners and announce them here
5. The contest closes on September 12 at midnight Ecuador time (which I believe is EST, but I could be wrong.)

Best of luck, all! I look forward to seeing all your lovely entries!
