Aww I hate how sometimes a photo can look great on your camera screen but then on your computer it's like "no that's off".

Trying again tonight!

**Change to the contest**

 

 We had a bit of confusion when posting on GDA, therefore the we are now asking for your best photo of 2012.  Those you have already submitted may submit again, simply send the image in the same message you sent the pervious entry in.

We apologize for the confusion.

Aw shit, my photo is super holiday-y and now I have to sift through all my photos from this year to pick the best one =/ I don't even have time for that! 

 

Can't you hold two contests, a holiday photo one and a 2012 photo one? Don't think it's great how the subject is changed two days before the deadline and after the contest has been running for a long time. Especially since it's an entirely different subject. I don't get why a contest needs to be changed just because a post on GDA a day ago was wrong, which can be edited, whereas people on GDC have been making holiday photos for at least a week and the contest has been running here for much longer. Plus all the submissions will be wonky because half will be holiday and half will be of a completely random subject with no continuity whatsoever because it's a weird theme, "the best photo you took this year". 

 

 

And I took my picture for this yesterday so I can't even submit it. Sorry but I think this is a kind of shitty move to pull.

Before that post I had received 4 entires, after that entry I had received many more,  which 90% were not holiday themed.     If you took your image yesterday I will happily allow you to submit.

If there are major issues with those few who have submitted or had holiday images and want to replace it with another but can't do so with in the short time frame.  Let me know and I will consider an extension.

I understand your frustration and I am sorry for the change.  Unfortunately mistakes happen and we have to work with them.  Best of luck with your submission
