This is going to be such a HUGE contest!!!

If you’ve had critique on a HOTW submission and then fixed up your photo from the feedback, can you enter said photo in HOTM?

Congrats! Nailed it! 100%! Awesome way to end and start a year!!!

i do not believe so "One entry per person, you can't re-enter the same shot if it's already been entered in a previous competition" But would also like clarification

Hmm...I wonder if that's new - because many people have entered winning HOTW photos into HOTM...

Ive seen it multiple times in the past as well, its either noone knows of the rule, or they never took it out of the rules list

You can't enter the same shot twice for HSOTW into the next HSOTW, same for HSOTM, but...... you can certainly put a HSOTW winner (or close) into the HSOTM. Caveat is, if you did not even get polled on HSOTW, then you should not enter the same images into HSOTM.

Also if you get polled but you get crushed in HSOTW, you can fix some elements based on Peters opinion and then submit it for HSOTM

I was blessed last night with a friend who brought his son to my studio and I found common ground and talked to him about him going to start his university life. I just started telling him to believe in himself and to aim high and to settle for anything less than excellence and the young man reacted with eyes that are loaded with hope and anticipation. I guess my mom was praying for me really hard!

Congratulations Mike! This was a HUGE contest with some tough competition. Way to go!

Daryl just topped it off with #100!!!
