Hi

Can somebody out there enlighten me as to why a couple of my pictures http://www.ephotozine.com/user/lizmutimer-127920/gallery/photo/sweet-oregano-26427268
and
http://www.ephotozine.com/user/lizmutimer-127920/gallery/photo/bow-river-26901976
which have awards on them, are not showing on my awarded photos tab?
Am I being silly and should have ticked a box somewhere?

Would be grateful for some help. Thank you.

Liz

The awarded Photos tab only includes Editors Choice, Highly Commended, Guest Editors Award and User Awards ... Not Readers Choice awards

Liz, Just to clarify the above answers.

When your image is viewed and voted on by 30 members, It automatically gets the magic " Readers Choice " thing.

Its an automated thing and not to be confused with the more considered awards, Like those bestowed by the Editor, Guest Editor etc.....Wink

So basically 30 members or more looked at the image, But at least 30 gave it a vote and or a comment, Unfortunately that is not always indicative of an images quality, Because its automated by the number 30, Rather than by distinction of photographic prowess, Use it as a very very basic guide as to what gets a second look, Keep trying to get the all important EC/HC or GE award, As these are the ones that appear in your awarded area.

Good luck....Grin
