Hi Angelo, because you have won awards in the other categories you are not eligible to enter photos in Novices Only. That category is for beginners who have not won awards in any other category.

Without a link to your friends account I can only speculate that the awards that she has won are in the Novice Section (or below a top 5% in the other categories) therefore would not make them ineligible for the Novice Category.

Debbie as long as the awards your friend is winning are all in Novices then they can continue to post there, once you win an award outside of Novices you can no longer post to that category.

BUT I understand I can NO LONGER post in the Novice category, but what happened to all the photos that were allowed to be posted there?? Because they were moving up, but getting no recognition when they were still posted in the Novice category from the first day, but my friend who posted afterward was getting awards against the ones I had already posted there. If I wasn't allowed to participate then why weren't those photos removed from that category? Do you understand my question now?

The photos you submitted to Novices stay in Novices and continue to compete. They may be paused if they are not doing well in competition. You can use the Duel Boost button at the top right corner of the large view of the image to make the image go back into play again.

Wan - have you already won a 5% or better award in another category? If so you have already "graduated" from the novice category.
