Best photo of 2016 competition question

Hi Adam, If I understand it correctly, after January 31 you will close the contest to submissions, and then the photos entered in the contest will be open for commenting and the one with the most comments wins. I just entered a photo and noticed that my thread has shown up in the Post your Photos forum and people can comment on it now. Am I right in assuming the comments photos receive between now and January 31 do not count toward a winner? Thank you!

I do find this a little confusing also. The Best Photo of 2016 is showing up in different threads, so it's most difficult to keep track. It's taken over the Post Your Photos, & crowding out those images submitted that are not for the "Best Photo". Perhaps something like this should have it's own thread???

The comments are intended to be organic, so anything posted now will count for the competition. At the end of the month, the "best of" prefix will simply be disabled.

Those browsing the forum should treat these submissions just like any other photo in PYP, since that's exactly what they are

Thanks for the explanation. My feeling is there isn't much cohesion to the competition as photos can very quickly end up on page two of Post Your Photos on a busy day. It would make more sense to have it as a "sticky" at the top of Post Your Photos so all the entries are together. Anyway, great prizes thanks for running the comp.

That's why I've set up a special gallery just for contest pics:

Post Your Photos! Grid View - PentaxForums.com

You're welcome to browse it now, but it will be promoted more once the contest closes. The order of the photos is random

No, but be considerate of fellow users. I'd recommend 900-1200px for the long edge of your photo.
