  • Persio

    It is also trying to charge me, said the first was free, but it still charges on the checkout… :/

    • Persio

      Ok, now it did accept my submission for free.

  • Zarif

    Can we use WATERMARK?

  • AshWind

    I’m getting the same as other people. If you upload two it while it says one will be free it lists it as two charges ($17 something). Even with only one upload it still says it charges.

    I cant seem to upload any photos!? when i drag them into the browser window when prompted the image just shows in the browser… Im using Chrome, anyone else having this issue?

    • AshWind

      They kind of worded it poorly, you have to make an account and upload the photos. Then when you go to the submit page it will show your uploaded pictures in a box below it. You drag them from that box to the submittion box.

  • Chris Duke

    Still charging people

    Hi everyone, there seems to be a configuration issue with Viewbug that prevents free submissions. we are working with ViewBug to fix that. I will keep everyone posted.

  • Tom Jakob Brablec

    “Submissions will be judged based on the creativity, originality and in accordance to the contest theme.” What’s the theme?
    Also, if I were to shoot some B&Ws on film and scan them, would I still be eligible to enter?

    • http://www.diyphotography.net/ udi tirosh

      Hi @facebook-1378187418:disqus , The theme is monochrome, other than that it is free style
      and yes, scanned B&W is awesome!

      • Tom Jakob Brablec

        Oh, good. Thank you! :)

    Are there any rules regarding photoshop/photo manipulation? I want to submit a photoshopped surreal image.

    • http://www.diyphotography.net/ udi tirosh

      heya, yes. you can only manipulate the photo for black and white conversion.

  • Jay Heinze

    It didn’t prompt me to put in a cord or anything?

    • http://www.diyphotography.net/ udi tirosh

      it will on the final stage of checkout.
      (or it does not need a code if you only have one image)
