    I think they do take every shot submitted. There are hundreds of pages in some of the categories. I put 2 up and they were both accepted even though one is pretty average. I think only the good ones make it onto the bbc interactive tv slideshow. I don't know anyone who's had one refused yet.

    Matt.

    some nice shots entered chaps.

    The way they work it is that the ones rated highest are the shortlisted shots that get judged...

    i raised this issue, only the first vote is counted from a particular IP, but if loads of people on AOL vote for you, your knackered, cos only the first will count. And if someone doesnt like you, they can vote 1 or 2 and your average plummets :thumbsdow
