i have to pay to enter the images? or upgrade as they said on the page?

Although the screen comes up to upgrade, I dont believe it's necessary to enter the contest. It's just a pop up to see if you want to upgrade.

i went to look on old posts and it was the same comment as me, i think it is , i couldn't find anyway around it unless i was just rushing through it all since i was at work. Are you an "upgraded member" ?

In the "How It Works" section, it says: Entry fee: Free for Premium and Pro members. It looks like since I'm a free member, I would have to pay to submit a photo.

not what i mean, I joined the free version and it then went back to enter the a image and it wanted me to upgrade to one of the yearly paying memberships. I know they are going to show my photo all over the place on there website thats a given , if you enter the contest i would expect that, what i dont understand is why i have to pay one of the yearly memberships to enter in the contest to win the camera?

Sorry I have enough accounts without signing up to not win something, but clever way to get members for advertisers and emails for spam.

There is a little link called unsubscribe at the bottom of all emails.

David Love's picture

Yeah that's the thing you click that they ignore. Or sometimes they are nice enough to remove you since they've already sold your information to 3rd parties and advertisers. Have fun.

I will have fun......? Anyway, works every time.
