Are ATP members able to view the entries to the competition? There are some awesome photographers and it would be wonderful to be able to see their work.

You will indeed be able to see them all, and you will get to vote for the winners. All this will happen at the conclusion of the contest entry timeframe.

@dave

I submitted three photos and each time this is shown:

There was an error in submitting the image. Please try again.

When I look at the list it shows I submitted one in three different sections (for a total of three pics).

It keeps happening each time (I've done more than three now).

I just tested this and it is working for me. We've also had 10 people successfully submit 70 photos so far, so it's working for some. Let's see if we can figure out what is happening here.

Are you uploading a photo from your hard drive?

What steps are you taking to enter it? Do you click on the "Choose File" button, locate the image, then click the upload button? Or are you using the BB Code option?

I click the browse button and pick one of my photos from our personal photo files, look at the image that is shown and click the submit button.

Only using a desk top computer and not a ipad/"tablet"/iphone.

I'm confused to what you mean.

"According" to the list http://garden.org/apps/photocontest/view/3/ , I've 2 different photos in the Bulbs section and 2 different photos in the Bugs or Birds on Plants.

I see. So you're getting the error message, but the photo was indeed successfully posted?

@mellielong @Marilyn and @Suga - I have done a lot of work trying to fix what might have caused this error. Could you try again and let me know if it's working for you now?

I have not tried it with my desk top Dave. I have only tried from my phone and my iPad. I thought that was probably my problem to be honest. But I will try again but seeing how I'm already "tucked" in and on a heating pad for tonight it will be tomorrow ok. Thanks for all your hard work!!!
