Can you resubmit an image that has a monthly finalist award in the contest as an entry for another month?

  Yes, you can---You can re-enter any image in your Member Center---even past winners.
If you don't make it to Finalist on the re-entry, the good news is you will still see your "first" Finalist badge on the image... they don't take away the Finalist from the first time...
If you win gold on the resubmit, the image will then show the gold medal.

  Hi Christopher,

I entered five second place images in the March contest and I had them removed from the contest to protect them.

I had a member write and tell me about this because I had a second place as a favorite in my favorite image thread in the March contest.

If you have a gold and it get a finalist award and does not go forward to get a first or second you lose the gold award and it remains a finalist.

If you do a finalist award your fine it can go forward.

Your taking a risk doing it with a gold award image.

This is just for your information.

  Just reload them from scratch, don't use the photo number. That way, your old one is still there and your new one will be just like it was never uploaded.

  While I've seen folks resubmit a Finalist, and the resubmit made 2nd Place later on, I've not heard of anyone resubmitting a 2nd Place winner (and the resubmit moves on to 1st or Grand.)
That doesn't mean it can't happen... but I personally tend to think if you get a 2nd or 1st Place, that image is as high up as it is likely to ever go, in BP's contest.

  Christopher I just messed up resubmitting the five second place winner's. I only have six second place's and I am sure I would have lost some of them.

I was lucky to have another member let me know not to do this and for the Better Photo Staff to remove them from the contest.

I may take up Carolyn's idea and submit a couple of them as new entries.

Thank you for your responses.
