  1. I submitted some pictures because my photographer was so awesome that I feel she needs to recognized. However, I may have accidentally but my name I a place where hers should have gone. I first thought I was filling out a referral and submitted it only to realize it all should have been about her. Also, I may have submitted incorrectly. Oh well- Best of luck!

    • I see it C. Stanley. I’ll fix on my end. Thanks for letting me know…

  2. Hello! I submitted 5 pictures a few minutes ago, and I failed to realize that the files did not have my studio name on them before sending. Does that disqualify me, or do I need to resend them?

    • Not a problem. Fixed on my end. Thanks for submitting…

  3. Just sent an email your way regarding my last minute submission. I got it in under the wire but had a hiccup with the export sequence not properly naming the files that didn’t catch my attention after submission.

  4. I am from the U.S., but have moved to New Zealand where I am the first high school senior photographer here!

    Am I able to apply for this contest even though I am out of the country?
