Re: Contests

Two reasons,

1) I don't frequent this forum often and therefore never know when you have a competition. I might IF I knew there was one.

I have never received a reminder that a comp is active. I would accept this type of email from the site.

2) I don't do exciting 'big' retouching that often. But would submit if I happened to have something relevant at the time.

Cheers.

Re: Contests

Had no idea these contests were still happening. I've seen the results of past contests scrolling by at the top of the home page, but all the entries I clicked on over the months were a few years old.

I'm also really busy so I'm not sure I'd have time to participate but I certainly didn't know there were still contests being held.

Also, just to clarify, by 'contests' do you mean those 'retouch this photo' requests like the photo of Amber the pretty redhead that keeps circulating? If that answer is 'no' then I've never heard of contests here at all......

Re: Contests

I did not know about the contest. I have never had any emails to notify me? I have also been pretty busy.

Re: Contests

I agree about the emails, my last received is dated 8/22/12 about international rentals. A simple newsletter - monthly maybe - would do wonders.
Though I'm not really active on-line lately.

Re: Contests

I also don't get the alerts for contests anymore. I would enter some if I was reminded, but am also sometimes too busy and at other times not keen on the kind of challenge.

Re: Contests

I have been super busy and not able to browse the site much - I had no idea there were any contests.

Re: Contests

I just did a search in my email and the last one I received was 8/8/2012 and was for International Rentals News.
