Monthly Photo Contest Rules now strictly enforced

Several users have complained in the past that it is not fair that some photos submitted to our monthly photo contest were in excess of the maximum filesize or resolution for monthly photo contests.

As a result, we've implemented an automated system that runs tests on all submitted photos. Should any photo not be taken with a Pentax, not be within the allowed resolutions, or be larger than the maximum filesize, it will not be included in the voting poll. While we will make an effort to advise users of disqualification ahead of time, we cannot guarantee this.

Read more here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/monthly-photo-contests/4162-rules-officia...-contests.html

Please also note that we will also be making an effort to disqualify photos that are unrelated or superficially related to the contest theme at hand.

So when I take a picture for a contest with my LX, and it reads the Exif data and excludes the photo taken with a Noritsu Film Scanner, what then?

Or are the monthly photo contests digital-only anyway?

Then the photo is flagged for manual review. Film photos are welcome!
