I opened a Contest named, "Wide Angle" couple of days earlier. It was doing fine and listed in the open contest but all of a sudden disappeared this morning. Can you please look into the issue and let me know what happened. Thanks

Hello Nadeem, if we delisted one of your contests you should have received e-mail about it to your e-mail connected to your Pixoto profile.

The contest can be delisted if it doesn't follow these guidelines:

Theme guidelines:

Must have a concrete and specific theme
May not have a theme that mimics a Pixoto category or subcategory
May not have a theme related to ImageScore, Awards or any other Pixoto quality
Must have a title that reflects the theme
Must have a clear description that describes the theme

Please check your e-mail (spam/junk folder too).

Hi Jesenka, I have just now checked very carefully my email including the spam/junk folder but I don't find any such email notifying me the delisting. Secondly, I don't think I violated any of the theme guidelines that you have mentioned above.
It's highly discouraging for me as I am a very enthusiastic member and take my contest with utter interest and sincerity
I would appreciate if you can let me know the reason for delisting if any; otherwise kindly relist the contest. We have already wasted a couple of days...thanks

Nadeem, I'm sorry for the delay. It was delisted because it didn't have a concrete and specific theme.
You should have received an e-mail about the delisting of contests. Please check your e-mail connected to your Pixoto account.

I checked the email time and again but as I told u earlier as well there was no email. 
secondly, I did describe the theme very clearly. it was about wide-angle pictures. I even mentioned in description about wide-angle pictures up to 50mm focal length. what else more concrete them pixoto need. 
I would appreciate if my contest can be put back on the list. 
I cannot even create the new one as this delisted one is perhaps still considered by the system as an open contest.
please help me out in this regard. but promptly. already wasted a lot of time on it. thanks

Hi Nadeem, the content of the image itself needs to have a concrete and specific theme. The theme cannot be related to the equipment being used only, the photos could then effectively be of anything.
