  Got one for the 5th. I was really spaced out the first week of May or so and kept forgetting and then playing catch-up, so this was actually my first May upload.

  Just checked out there and my May 31 entry has received an EP. This is the only entry that I had all month so I am thrilled. Also, I have gotten emails that 5 of my previous winners have been chosen in round 3 of the "All-time Favorites". :)

  Did anyone get an EP on their May 31, 2016 contest entry? which is being shown as June 1, 2016 entry in the 'My Previous Entries' page.
Could it be that the system is not picking these entries for the May contest for viewing of judges, and the judges might only see these next month!!

  Thanks for the confirmation, Lindley. Ok, so I know now that someone at least took a look at my favroite entry of the month and just didn't like it which is fine. Its good to know that the last day entries are considered in the contest.

  I'm not sure they are finished with May. As I mentioned in another thread, my May 31st entry doesn't have an EP, however I've noticed in the past that my EPs seem to come later than many others for the same day's entries. Or maybe they just didn't like it ... Or maybe there will be a round two ... Remains to be seen ...
Good luck everyone!

  Strange: one that I entered on May 14th NOW has an EP....after all the others after that have had them for a couple weeks(?). And it looks like June's EPs stalled out a few days back. And the All-Time Finalists are now being picked, at the same time!

I'm so excited!! I've never gotten 2nd place before, but I did in May. I was getting a little discouraged because I've been submitting photos faithfully this spring, & to my delight the judges liked my Watermelon Granita photo enough to give it a 2nd place! Sorry, I don't mean to toot my own horn here, just wanted to share my excitement.
