And winning entries may be used in connection with the Contest and promotion of the Contest for a period of 24 months from the date winners are notified.
When will the winners be notified?

Can I mail-in my submission?
Sorry, we do not accept mail-in submissions. Please register on this website and upload you entries online.
What is the People's Choice?
The People's Choice is fully independent from the entries selected by our judges and winners are selected exclusively by the votes of visitors on the Site which are based entirely on their
personal discretion. These votes do not influence the Judges; the winners for the other categories are determined exclusively by the Judges. Votes from Site visitors influence only the
People's Choice section.
How do I vote for People's Choice?
In order to vote you need to provide a valid email address, and only one vote per email address is possible. If after voting the first time,
you decide to vote for another image, the first image you voted for will lose that vote. You will see a message reading "Thanks for voting!" and the entry will be highlighted by a BLUE BOX
after your vote has been cast.
How many times can I vote?
One vote per person. We ask that all voters be fair about placing their votes and remember that we track via
email address and other information for the final vote scores after the contest deadline.
