    Hi! I have a problem, i want to be in this competition, but I don't know how to do it! I mean there are two rules that I don't understand: * Make sure that they are relevant to the (sub-category) themes, and upload them to the correct sub-category! * You could submit a maximum of 10 photos only per sub-category, and an overall maximum submission of 20 photos. CATEGORIES? SUBCATEGORIES? 10-20? WHERE TO UPLOAD IT? WHERE ARE THE CATEGORIES AND SUBC.? :S Please, please help me! (beatles).

    Sub-theme 1 is: Show Us Your Energy Around You
    and you can submit ten entries/photos in this page.
    We still need to wait for the second Sub-them,e after 15 days I guess. :)

    we can submit 100 photos now ??

    and "submissions must be at least 1220px" - I don't know the resolution of all my pics, but i have all the negatives, so I can provide higher resolutions of them if necessary.
    Will this 1220px rule be observed when chosing the winners ?

    @all: if you have already submitted images for the competition at a smaller size, it is ok, they will be counted in the judging. If you happen to win, we will ask you to re-scan your images to fit our requierments. Just FYI, the reason we want such large images is that we need this measurement to insure we can include them in the exhibition So, from now on, please submit images that fit the size requierments!

    @troyhunter - when you look at your own photos on your LomoHome it has a drop down menu on the right side of the page which lets you select a competition to submit this photo to... alternatively, go to the competition page and below the article is a horizontal display with al your photos, just select them there.

    I don't think I have 100 photos that best fit this theme, although I'm always surprised to see what catches the LSI eye. I would love to go to Brazil though. My passport is ready and I have the time. If nothing else, then of course I would like to win one of those wonderful LC-A cameras. I don't own one as of yet. :))
