Have today been awarded a 2nd place in the week - yay!! (Wedding category) but my image is in first place? Not sure why I didn't win the category any ideas? (Roy Hawkins- couple in the snow on path) Thanks.

Roy, your image continues to be matched in duels with other images, even after you have received your weekly awards and points. In your case, your image has done better than the first place finisher, and if it continues to do well in duels you will be the beneficiary of the resulting higher monthly points when they are calculated and awarded.

Hi Roy the timing of when awards are allocated is here

http://www.pixoto.com/photography-com...

for weekly awards your pic needs to be leading midnight GMT on the Wednesday following the week you entered the pic in. Sounds like it was in 2nd place when the awards where given but kept winning and rose to first place after that.

Hope that makes it a bit clearer for you.
