Hi. Are players allowed to submit the same image twice into the same category? In "transportation", Nicole Hubbs currently has two competing images which are essentially the same.
On a similar topic, can the same picture be submitted into different categories and also, can the same one be entered in the same category in different weeks?
I hope this all makes sense?!

Hi Martin,

A player should not submit an image that previously won an award into the same category again. If they do, they should delete the previously awarded images.

It is a little muddier if the images are just similar (e.g. taken from the same shoot and around the same time). A variation in composition, lighting, etc, even if slight, could make a difference in the outcome. I don't know that we want to limit the ability of users to submit variations of an image that isn't exactly the same. Do you want to send along the links to the images you are referencing?

You can submit the same image into different categories.

Let me know if you have any further questions!

I found an image three times in the same category. The only difference is that the image has a different caption name. I guess I am confused as to how that can happen and be allowed to happen. Can someone explain that to me?

Reading this, the same image CAN be entered more than once as long as it is in different categories?
