Just a friendly reminder, there is only 3 weeks left to enter Michael The Maven's 2012 Photography Contest!
While we have received many entries, we are no where close to what we had with 3 weeks left to enter last years. Some of the categories only have a few dozen entries (this is shocking to me! Enter every category you can....its free!)
Been getting some questions about judging and when we can expect to see results. It will typically take me a few full days to go through all the entries, I then post "Nominees" for each category, usually within 1-2 weeks of the end date. From there, I try to get it down to about 30 semi-finalists for each category and from there 12-15 finalists. At that point they are turned over to the judges who typically spend about a week on them. I am going to make every effort to have all the judging completed around Dec 15, but it may take more or less time, depending.
As for the promotional part of the contest, we hope to have all those winners announced and prizes shipped by Nov. 21. We are only seeing a handful of entries on Twitter, Instagram and on Blog entries, and as such, those entries have a very good chance of being selected for prizes. Just a tip ;)
