    What about tipsters that we've submitted and published in the past? Can we use those? But then ... we can't edit the tags.

    I've always fancied trying to warp film in the microwave before using it, has anyone heard/seen/tried this before or know of where I can get help for a lomo obsession?

    Hi there, I submitted my tipster for this competition a while ago, and its been published, but now I am not sure if I added the metatags correctly as I am new to this site... I thought I had, but now I am not sure - how do I check? My tipster is "Multiple Exposure Self Portraits"

  62. mrmaart
    mrmaart ·

    TO ALL - the rumble ended last Thursday the 18th. All tipsters (published or not published) that have been submitted BEFORE the 18th and which has at least 3 tags including "gup", "gupexperiment" - they will compete for the prices!
    did submit your tipster on time but some of these metadata is missing? please let us know before WEDNESDAY 25th of august! this way we can find your tipster easier...

  63. colleenmaria
    colleenmaria ·

    @mrmaart thanks very much. I submitted my tipster well ahead of the deadline. I thought for sure I had included 'gupexperiment' in the tags, but when I search for that tag, my article doesn't come up. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong. My tipster is "Multiple Exposure Self Portraits". Thanks again.

    @mrmaart

    i resubmitted my tipster, whcih was called "Supersampler meets match-box", the new name is "Supersampler + match-box = Collage". All tags are written. Hope it would be recieved. Sorry for my internet connection, I live in Russia and it sucks over here, i guess than i was submitting my tipster on aug.12th or 13th smth went wrong and u didn't get my article. Maybe my wi-fi lagged. I'm really sorry i just realised it, cos I didn't see my tipster published for a long while. I was out of the city, so I just got online. Thanks for the undersatnding and again - my apologises! Cheers!

    @colleenmaria - no worries. we found your tipster too! the international editors will publish them one by one. that's why it could take some time before they appear online.
