Just a quick update- We are still downloading and going through all the images. It is going to take some time, but we expect the first set of nominees to be Sports and they should be up on Thursday. Also aiming for Abstracts or Macro to be up on Saturday, and then have the other sets up every 3-4 days after. Once we have all the nominees picked it should be a pretty straight forward process.
I know a lot of you are anxious to see the entries, we are working as fast as we can, but we also want to do a good job and respect every image submitted. This means I personally have to look at and inspect close to 7,000 images, so yes, we are going to break it up over a couple weeks, but I think we should be through the whole process before the end of Jan (though I could be wrong).
