In the event that the contest sponsors are unable to reach a winner with in 14 days, that selected entry may be disqualified and an alternate winner will be selected from among all remaining eligible entries. Only one prize will be awarded per contest winner, household, family, group or organization.
Winning Multiple Contests
You may only win one prize per contest and you may not enter the consecutive photo contest if you have already won a prize in the previous contest. For example if the judges pick your photo as 1st place winner and 3rd place winner you will be awarded 1st place, third place will go to the 4th place photograph. We often ask top prize winners if they would like to help judge the next contest, this gives winners a way to participate while giving the chance to win in the next contest to another photographer.

Amatuer and professional photographers are allowed to entered our photo contests (we often can’t tell the difference by looking at the photos so it’s impossible to restrict professionals from entering). We feel that our contest rules often deter professional photographers from entering and “giving away” their work.
