Okay, I don't understand something. There is an open contest. But you can see the entries already entered. Why?
Shouldn't they be hidden until the contest is over? I understand that I can't vote until I have at least 10 entires. (That's how I take it.) This site is hard to navigate to look for information.
Okay members who pay for membership get the larger version of the original images weeks ahead and can enter them ahead of time. So when a contest starts every day there usually are some early entries there waiting. Then when started you can vote for any entries that are there. Now that is the same time the image is released to the general public to start working on, and people keep entering their images right up to the end, 3days. Then a winner is announced, and displayed the next day on the front page.
Hope that answers the question.
