    I have tried to register to upload photos, but it hasn’t sent me an activation email!!

  • Ellen Guzauski

    Hi. I currently do not reside in the UK – however, I have dual citizenship in Ireland. Can I still enter?

  • Maciek

    When winners will be notified?

  • Kev Morris

    I missed the part where you need to put your first and last name on the file..erm, where is this done on the original file thats on Hard Drive? can I edit it here now I have uploaded already to the competition?

  • Stephen Apochi

    I tried your nikon power of colours gallery, but says username & password were incorrect.

  • WDC staff

    thank you for your comments.
    Zayn – no the photograph doesn’t have to be taken with a Nikon so snap away!

    I’m afraid we don’t accept any entries outside of the UK (please refer to our rules). And unfortunately you do have to be over 18 to enter Charlotte, but we list all competitions in our news pages so look out there for upcoming competitions that may accept entries for under 18’s, or perhaps your mum or dad could have a try!

    Andi – photos can be edited and each person can send up to 10 photos.

    Hope that helps.

  • Andi

    Do you allow photos to be edited whith photoshop or any other program? and how many photos can a person send?

  • Charlotte

    Do you do any kids/teenagers competitions? Im 15 and would have loved to entered this competition but then read the terms and conditions and saw you had to be over 18 🙁 so was wondering if you did any othe contests for u18’s?

  • Jay

    how about foreign entries like asia. is it ok??

  • Zayn

    Does the photograph has to be taken with a Nikon camera only ?

  • Estelle Hicks-Bennett

    Hi Rob

    Thank you for pointing out about the T&Cs – they are now showing. You are quite right – over 18’s only – so sorry!

  • Rob Ellis

    Any T+C’s, such as minimum age, as I know all the others seem to be 18+, and I have one of my fav. photos that would fit the competition perfectly, but I’m 15 :'( Think Ill jump for joy if theres no age limit, but I’m guessing there will be? 🙂

  • Phil

    is there a limit of photos per person?
