I have spent several hours trying to upload my 5 photos to the NH Dream Vacation Contest.
First I ran into problems because some of my photo files were too large so I had to reduce them and reload.
Then 3 of my photos were on my desk top computer and 2 were on my laptop. Although they are networked I couldn’t get them to all upload to the same entry form. The entries have to be submitted all at once. I finally gave up that battle, copied the 2 from the laptop to disk and reloaded them on the desktop so they would all be in the same place.
So you’d think it would be easy from there, right? Well putting them in the entry form was easy but then I hit submit and nothing happened. When I hit submit a 2nd time I got a message, validating form. Well It’s now been 15 minutes and it’s still “validating form”. Maybe they are getting a lot of traffic. I wish it had a progress bar so I’d have some idea if it’s doing anything or just frozen.

If it ever uploads they will probably be under Recently Submitted.
I finally canceled out and reloaded all of them This time they went right in and I got a message that “All photos have to be approved. My pictures will appear shortly” So at least I know they got there this time. I’m not sure what “shortly” means but I’ll keep checking and let you know.
Speaking of checking, I haven’t seen anything on the Cog Railway pictures either. Maybe I didn’t make the cut or maybe they are just behind.
The 5 I am trying to submit are:
