Hello folks

Is it acceptable to enter a photo into a competition that already features in your gallery?

Many thanks

I don't see why not. Do you think comments on it in the gallery might influence judging?

Cheers. I don't think that comments would affect judging as no judge would trawl a gallery surely?!

Even if they did, comments are personal so a glowing set of comments in the gallery may bear no sway with a judge who dislikes the offering, and of course vice versa.

Indeed. A judge that did that must have too much time on their hands!

Cheers John

No problem, by all means enter the picture. The only exception for being free to enter any image is for the monthly competitions, where the shot must be made in the current month.
Best regards, John

I've occasionally used a picture in competitions and also in the Gallery and no one has ever complained , or even noticed. As has been said above, there is no rule covering this.

PS: I must do more comments in the Forum as I'm pushing for my 3,000th post, a flee bite compared to some of my friends on here. Congrats on your first 500.

Thank you David.

I am genuinely in awe of the collective experiences on this site.
