Yes. You can also use lego digital designer as well. The same rules apply as other digital programs. You will still need a white background on at least one image.

Thanks,

Do I have to have a white margin on every side of the pic or is this view ok?

I have a pic with margins on every side but I don't want to upload it to flickr - I don't like to have too much pics there showing the same motive.


That one image with a white background is fine.

This sounds confusing for the judges. I would keep all images for single entries on one flickr account.

Thanks,

Is the Medieval Militia category limited to foot-soldier training, or does cavalry training work, too? Thanks.

Cavalry, archery, or infantry training (or combination thereof) are acceptable.

Thanks,

I currently have 6 entries that I can not approve...and I am approving as fast as I possibly can on all entries. If you aren't seeing your entry pop up...then I have attempted to contact you if you are violating an entry rule.

Right now those 6 are all missing a white background photo. That is a requirement.To explain why it is again (and I am trying to explain it over and over in the nicest and most understanding way) there are 2 reasons for the white background:

1) We need to be able to see the details you are building. Some of us have eyes that do not like dark upon dark upon dark. We try super hard to see what you built.
2) Now for you the most important reason may just be this: it speeds up judging and reporting the winners. Every winner has to be digitally edited to remove your background. If it is white, well that just makes everything faster.



Also, please remember...brickshelf is the slowest way to enter this contest. I have one entry I am waiting for it to be approved on brickshelf before I can approve it.

I am approving entries...if you don't see your entry, then I have contacted you either here, or at Flickr. Please check those.

At this moment, I have again and remaining issues with the not having a white background image. It is a requirement. (see above)

I have others with image issues. Please recheck the image rules if you are not seeing your entry. If I haven't contacted you or put you on the naughty list...the admins are talking about your issue(s)

Good day and welcome to the last day to enter.

I have contacted every single person on the naughty list or one that has not been approved. Please check your flickr mail.

In the consideration of trying to get judging done as quickly as possible, you have until January 4th to get yourself off the naughty list and entered into the contest.

Holy busy batman! I have approved over 50 entries today alone...and there are like a little over 8 hours to go.

I'm checking in about once an hour today.

Heads up...my power is blinking. If you need me for the end of this contest...I don't know if I will have power and internet to help you. Sorry but mother nature kind of in charge..

It has been approved but not in the vignette category. Is that where you wanted it? You have it in the Classic Castle category. I did not change that.

Thanks for checking it :D
Sorry, my fault.
Of course good old Leo belongs to the Legends vignette category - he doesn't have any real connection to a Lego theme!

Cheers
