General question about the new look monthly competitions

Hi all,

I was wondering what EPZ is doing regarding the new format monthly competitions, in terms of how they show the winner and shortlisted entries.

I've been looking for any indication of who the winner is for the September and October 2018 competitions, but can't see anything - the old set-up very clearly showed exactly who won and who was shortlisted. This new way seems like a backwards step to me.

Thanks

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your feedback - now you've pointed it out, it does make sense to publish the results in the forum (seems obvious now you have said it, an oversight on our part).

We do publish a news item to highlight the winners but we will, from now on, share a link to the results in the specific competition once it has ended.

Here's a link to the Sept and Oct comp results:

September Winners

October Winner

Thanks again,

Thanks Nikita. Smile

I take it you'll no longer be showing the shortlisted entries from now on?

Regards,
Andy.

We can add these back in - no problem at all. Smile

I think the old way of listing the comps and entering was far better and easier

I am now thinking about the re new of Plus membership

The Monthly Comps were Straightforward but now I don,t know who won ,or if there is a comp.
The daily one well I have never found out if anybody has won
Please please go back
if it was not broken why mend it

Hi Jim,

Photo Month winners are now published at the top of the Photo Month forum here to make the press releases easier to find: https://www.ephotozine.com/forums/photo-month-forum-354

Winners are usually chosen weekly however depending on how the weeks fall, there may be a slight delay. The final January Photo Month winner will be published shortly.

Regarding monthly competitions, the running of these is dependant on a sponsor. When there is a monthly competition running, it will be clearly stated as such in the forums and there will be plenty of promotion across the site allowing you to find and enter it.

Thanks
