oh, did u manage to send your high res image before 8th may?
that was the last date to submit high resolution image.
I got an email too dated 15th May but no mentione of dateline to submit the hi-res JPEG file (2-20MB).
you got a mail on 15th may??
what did it say? because the result date was 10th may.
what was the content of your email
(btw i think the result date is now postponed to tuesday. but i am not sure. has anyone tried to call them?)
I knew the shortlist of 50 was out so i couldn't be bothered. To my surprised, this mail came in on 15th. Not sure if this is genuine or a spam!

OK, here's the gist.
Spoken to Priya, from whom i got an email.
She said that there will be another email blast by tomorrow mentioning that STB will put up another 1000 images as thumbnails for public to poll. Those whose photos appear in that link will have to submit hi-res images.
Apparently they will need more than the initial 50 photos for their marketing purposes.
Yes, basically they need a larger pool of photos. Let's wait for the next email.
no prizes though if selected but credits will be given for the photos used. They wont tell us individually which photos you need to send. You have to look out for your photos among the 1000 images in the thumbnail...sigh

Hmmmm.... looks like STB very blur and dunno how to run photo contest.
One of my images was in the shortlisted 50 but till today I never got any word from them. And now they want the public to choose from 1000? They cannot decide for themselves? Give the public 1000 photos and public will be even more confused than STB.
This is one big ALAMAK. First the unreasonable terms and conditions, now this...
In fact, I did not even know my image was there until a friend congratulated me. I had earlier glanced through but did not notice then I looked again and yes, it was there.
Anyway thanks to you or someone else for Priya's contact. I just emailed her to ask what is going on. This whole thing seems just to confusedly organised,
Hi I have received the email from STB too. I dont see my photos under the 50 shortlisted. Now they said I am one of the 100 finalist. what a mess ! I sent her email but no reply. Really cannot be trusted.
Ok Finally the results are out
I won the third prize :P (D60+18-105 VR)
Congratulations to all the other winners!
Now I am going to get ready for the next one ...lol
First prize? Looks like a reuse recycle winning photo from past competition.
It gets boring after a while. And so what do you do?
Resubmit to another competition again, NDP09 Come Together. Hope and pray no one will find out.
