  Lorri, I'm not sure how long you've been gone from EP. Several years ago BP was pretty consistent in handing out EPs within a few days after the contest day.

But over the last few months, they've gone several weeks without awarding any EPs, and then in a 2-3 day period they catch up and do about 10-15 days.

Last month, Jim M said that BP was working hard to award EPs faster, including the Staff Favs and Finalists/Winners. And BP has already gone thru all days in Feb. And recently, folks have reported more EPs in Feb so it looks like they're taking a 2nd run thru the images.

Long story short...they are getting to EPs faster now (at least for Feb and initially, for March).

As for whether there are fewer EPs. There are far fewer contest entries now as compared to a few years ago, so the number of EPs are lower as well. And the EP rate fluctuates. I've gone thru a sampling of photos to see which ones got an EP and which ones didn't. Several years ago, I remember seeing months when the rate was 80% (which means virtually all contest entries got an EP), to as low as 25% (one in four got an EP).

I checked the EP rate for March 1st, from Midnight to 12PM (12 hour period), and the rate was 38% (42 EPs out of 110 entered). That's lower than normal, although maybe 40% is the new norm?

  My goodness, Joannie, wonder what's going on there! No changes like this in my gallery as far as I can see. Too bad, LOL. Also, not doing well so far with EPs. Missed the first three days of the month, and since then have only two EPs, with the last one on the 9th.

  Checking in late. I've only submitted one entry on 3/4 and it was skipped. I've been submitting more people portraits and BP doesn't seem to like them :( Since I am newer with people pics, does anyone know where to get some good feedback or critique?

I remember someone commenting before but can't find the thread...even though I am submitting entries on different two of them were "logged in" as the same date. Does anyone know why this is or how to correct? Thanks.

  GOOD NEWS - found in SnapShot# 670...

"Contest news: 1) Once again, it's OK to resubmit. If a photo didn't place, and you'd like to try again, then feel free to go for it! 2) The judges are now selecting more Editor's Picks, and best yet, the EP's are being chosen sooner."

  I have cut way back on entering photos and I really wish I hadn't renewed my gallery for another year. I entered two for March and both were skipped. No reason to be encouraged.

  Are they through for March? I was looking at the EP's and there are some fabulous photos this month and lots of EP's. I haven't been anywhere to photograph and have not done much for a few months. I can see that I have some catch up work to do. Good luck to everyone.

  Yes Harriet, they are through with their FIRST pass of March contest entries. However, as has happened in the last few months, I expect there will be at least one more pass where they will pick more EP.

March 28 - Basking - Travel & Place
March 29 - DID NOT ENTER
March 30 - DID NOT ENTER
March 31 - Cresting an Impression - Monthly Theme

  I just started back on 3/29 and I have eps for 3/29,30,31 & 4/1.
I see the reasons I left for are still here! I also see the sight is experiencing bandwidth problems that keep the photos from populating the page for several minutes.

  21 of 31 for me, but I'm still hoping for a couple of pickups later on if they go back through. I'm thrilled with what I got, but I see a couple that I think should have an EP.

  Joannie, they will probably reassess some skipped images and grant a few more EPs in the second pass. I am an optimist and see two potential golds out of two EPs. Best of luck.

  I wonder if, although the CA category changes don't go into effect until the April entries, entering anything else under the CA category is already a no-go.

So now do I re-enter my skipped entry under a different category in the future or just assume that the Judges are right about my photography skills?

  I did get that email - I thought that was the best reversal decision they've made.

It's probably no good, but it was so dramatic that I was intrigued enough to enter it.

  Hey Kathy, I like it. But most importantly, do you like it? Don't let the omission (or inclusion) of an EP be the barometer for whether a photo is good or bad. We've all seen resubmitted photos that didn't have an EP initially, go all the way to 1st place and Grand Prize.

It's certainly not applicable for the new Man-made category. But People would be an option. And I'm going off memory, but I think "Elements" also accounts for abstracts. And maybe this is an abstract...would be curious what others thought too.

  Bob, just navigate to the Forum page and click "all new responses." You might want to bookmark this link:

http://www.betterphoto.com/QnACat.asp?catID=251

Usually, the EP thread is towards the top of the page, because it's pretty active. And this URL is quid reference if you wish to see any of the active forum topics.
