    I don't think we had a western theme for a while now, so since I can't think of a better one, and because I watched two western films over Easter weekend, I thought let's do it.

    Any westerns set in the American Frontier or Mexico in the 19th to early 20th century. Otherwise, go wild (no pun intended). Whether it's a John Wayne or Clint Eastwood flick, Spaghetti Westerns like Django or A Fistful of Dollars, other Euro-Westerns like the Winnetou films, comedies like Blazing Saddles, The Three Amigos or Shanghai Noon, even those with fantastic elements like Back to the Future Part III or The Valley of Gwangi. And of course, don't just limit yourself to movies, TV shows like Gunsmoke or Deadwood, or comics like Blueberry or Jonah Hex are welcome, too.

    Since the theme is pretty broad, I'm gonna give a limit of three entries per user, as to not repeat what happened with the Animation contest over in SF&F. Besides that, as usual, entries may not be larger than 200x200 pixels and/or 1 Mb data. And keep it worksafe, of course.

    ^What about Firefly or Western-themed episodes of Trek ("Spectre of the Gun," "A Fistful of Datas")?

    Those I'd rule out, simply to have at least some limits. Also trying not to give any fodder for loopholes รก la "Outland is just a western in space". The setting and the timeframe is the limitation I've decided on. That, and if it's based on a true story, it must be dramatized, not a documentary.

    But, as I forgot this in the original post, other media like literature and video games are allowed, as well.
