  Kalena, I got an EP on the 7th, in Catch-all. But I don't know if they've done all the categories for the 7th. You could go to the "Recent Contest Entries" page and just scroll thru each category and look for yourself...it's tedious, though.

If you see some people start getting them on the 8th, then it's probably a safe bet that BP is thru with the 7th. However, this is not a hard/fast rule because many people reported EPs a few days ago for early December, long after BP had done their initial pass through.

  Betty Ann, I know the feeling. I stopped entering for a while and tried again the last week or so of January but nothing. I know it shouldn't make a difference but it does offer encouragement. A POTD would also be encouraging. I'll give it to the end of Feb. then I'm done. I'm in MA and the snow looks like it's getting lighter now.

  Hi Beth. You mentioned you started entering again the last week of January. Based on this EP thread, I think they're only up to Jan 18th. If you entered new photos after Jan 18th, then you may still get an EP or EPs.

  They are moving fast. I got quite a few EPs over night, with the last one on the 25th.

On the December EP thread, Jim Miotke said that BP was going to improve the timing for the contest. Who knows, maybe we'll see Staff Favs by the middle of the month with Finalists by the 21st..a return to yesterday. :-)

Last Feb. I received an EP for this image for Travel & Place and I resubmitted it last week for January's MT after I had done some adjustments on it in Topaz Detail which I thought improved it and made it look more like what I saw when taking it. It got overlooked this time. Go figure? Any comments are appreciated.

  Patricia, I like the second one better, too. I wish I knew what they liked about the first one that they didn't like in the second one.

  Jill had mentioned to Joannie and me that it was easy to start the new Month's thread for the EPs, Finalists, Winners, and Judges' Favorites.

As February is already seeing some EPs, there are going to be requests to start it immediately. I've decided not to do it. Hopefully, this won't be construed as a negative and removed. It's just a heads up that someone else needs to step up to the plate.

  It appears they have gone back and added things for January EPs that previously were skipped. Four additional suddenly for me, although my favorite still lacks one.

  Their timing is improving quite a bit. Now, if only they'd stop jumping around. Once, they skipped my first five entries and gave an EP for 01/06 - I figured that was it, and didn't return. Checking back all the time is pretty depressing. At least, I did check after receiving an email notification about a comment on one of mine. It had an EP that wasn't there before. That's when I found the new EPs for three of the five ones that were skipped earlier.

  No.
and
Nope.
We can give you very general parameters - through the years the finalists have been posted as early as mid-month (even earlier, once, I think) and as late as a day or so into the next month. More recently, they are quite late in the month but by the end of the month. But you can be assured that they will be selected and posted :)
