Are there issues with the submission dates? For example I am trying to submit a photo for the "masters study", that was taken yesterday... and I get an error message that the submission is outside the required dates (shows Jan 1 2013 - Dec 31 2013 as the required submission dates).

Make sure you're entering the right challenge. It sounds like you clicked on Best of 2013 by mistake?

Drake is probably having the same problems I've been having.

I submitted a ticket yesterday, and supplemented it with two more notes today concerning problems with the Masters Study
and that error message.
If the ticket didn't get through here is what it/they said:

(sigh) you must be getting tired of hearing from me. latest? Just now I went back in to that image to add the shooting details and change the title. After filling in all the information, This is the message that cropped up once more when I hit the update button:

The date you have entered is outside the challenge dates. Please submit a different photograph that was taken during the challenge dates.

interesting! When I checked just now, I see my entry was accepted and is in place. Still, during the only two times I tried to submit it, it gave the error messages below and appeared to be refused.

Is there magic in the system?

Checked that I was in the correct challenge... and I was. On another challenge for the best of 2013, it shows entry dates of Jan 1 2014 thru Dec 31 2014.... I will try to enter the Masters study again later, maybe the glitch will be solved by then.

i'm having the same problem when trying to change my title. i get the wrong submission date error message.

sent a ticket yesterday

Thanks... will try again tomorrow.

Same problem for me. Best of 2013 requires a date in January, 2014, while Masters only accepts dates in 2013. Seems like these are reversed.

I tried to enter and realized it was a member challenge. Even though I was a member all of 2013 and the first 9 days of 2014 when the photos could be taken I couldn't enter. :p

Langdon has been informed of the problem ... resolution awaits his action. There is no need to submit additional tickets at this time.

In the past, the dates have been adjusted (e.g. extended) to allow everyone to submit their image. Sorry for the confusion.

As an experiment, you might try uploading your entry using the "Classic Uploader" link instead of the "new improved" upload system ... "something is up" since clearly some people have been able to submit entries ...

I entered using a date of 12/20/13 for the Masters challenge with the real date taken in the notes section. I figure I'll change it when the glitch gets fixed. There will be an announcement when it's fixed, correct?

Of course, I'm sure everyone would feel much better about it if SC generally promised not to DQ anyone on a date issue (provided it was taken during 2013 anyway)...

The submission process is automated, we're not. None of us would vote to DQ an entry taken during the intended dates.

It's fixed. Or at least it was for me.

Thank you to the person with the magic fingers who did the repair.
