I am by no means a professional photographer... I have never studied photography. I understand You cannot post in the Novice's Only section if you have won awards!

I consider myself a novice!

Looking at some of the photos in the Novice section I'd say they were professional!

A very good novice apparently ;)

We really want the Novice Only category to be a place you can graduate from. The criteria that we are using is if you have won a 5% or better award in one of the other major categories (excluding photoshop art and mobile).

Hi Jason,
does that mean that you can submit an awarded Mobile photo in the Novices category? What is the logic excluding Photoshop and Mobile categories???

If you have won 5% or better awards in OTHER categories then you will not be able to submit to Novice Only. Does that make sense?
