How To Enter The Awards
You can submit 10 individual images (Reportage Awards), and 3 Stories (Story Awards), per competition. It’s really easy to enter your images and/or Stories. To do so, simply:
1. Log in to your This is Reportage account
2. Make sure you have already uploaded your images and/or Story (as per the above instructions)
3. Click ‘Your Profile’. ***Make sure you are clicking ‘Your Profile’, not ‘edit portfolio’.***
4. Click ‘Portfolio’.
5. Click the gallery where your images are, or your ‘Stories’ gallery to submit a Story.
6. Over each image/Story thumbnail, there is a submit icon – a little ‘tick’ top-right of each thumbnail. Simply click the submit icon over any image/Story that you wish to enter into the awards. You will get a ‘successfully entered into the current awards’ message, and the submit icon will turn orange, like this:
If you don’t see the ‘tick’ icons, you are either viewing the wrong section (make sure you are clicking ‘Your Profile’, not ‘edit portfolio’ – please see the video above), or it is Judging Week – you cannot submit during Judging Week, but submissions are open for the next Awards as soon as the winners of the previous Collection are announced. You can then submit at any time up to the deadline.
If you change your mind, click the submit icon again to de-select. It is only when the deadline of a competition is reached that we will use the 10 images and/or 3 stories that are currently selected, so feel free to change your mind as much as you like until that deadline. You need to be logged in to do this, and only you can see which images(s)/story you have submitted; this information is not made known to anyone else (including brides/grooms viewing your galleries).
