I just downloaded a picture and it doesn't show up. It says I downloaded 4 but only 3 are shown.

Maybe a dumb question, but, if my photo did not win can I enter it again the following week?
Jason Alley August 10, 2012 at 04:08 AM
That's not a dumb question at all, Heather. It's a very good question because yes, you can! Photos do not automatically carry over week to week, but you're more than welcome to resubmit the same photo (or send in new ones) for the following week's contest. Good luck!
