Was I supposed to get prize money?

I have a photo that supposedly won prize money during the week of 11-13-11. It was first in it's sub-category and when I put my mouse over my name in the top, right corner, it said claim prize money. I filled out the form, and it said money would be sent via Paypal at the end of the month. I never received it. Was there a mistake in that you only win prize money for getting first in the main category, and it wasn't supposed to send me the "claim your prize" thing?

I never got a 'claim your prize' message... How did you get that? My shot won 1st place in travel two weeks ago. I filled in the form through the award explanation page, but it wasn't really clear. The form stated payment through paypaycom.. never heard of that, but it turned out that the form meant paypal... ;) But, after submitting the form I didn't get confirmation or anything so I am a bit confused... And with me many others as is getting clear by all the questions asked here....

This week there is a change I win again. But I am still confused about the way claiming the prizes..

If you win 1st place in the main category (not subcategory), you will receive an email from us indicating you have won a cash prize. You will be directed to a form where you can fill out your payment details and we payout once per month meaning there can be a delay depending on when you win.

The prize claim option in the profile drop at the top right of the site was a bug and should not have appeared at all for anyone.

Payments can be made by PayPal or check.

Does this help?

I already did a week ago. Now I won two more first places. But didn't receive a mail stating I won cash prizes and how to claim it. I filled in the form again just now

Congratulations! It takes between 30 and 60 days to receive your payment.

I filled out one of those too a while back & figured it was a goof. Glad to know I was once again right! ;)

Annemarie - I didn't really get a message, it was just a "claim prize" button when I put my mouse at the top right corner where my name was. But turns out that was a bug on the site.

Justin - Ok, that answered my question! Mine got first in the sub-category, not main one. So the "claim prize" shouldn't have appeared. Thanks so much!!
