Hey, folks -- several of you have written because you are unsure whether your photo has made it into the contest. Here's some guidance for you.

1.) Check your contest tags to make sure they are:

Boston.com contest August2010 pets

That 4th tag isn't "pets at play" -- it's simply "pets".

2.) Make sure that there are at least 5 photos in your Flickr account. That's the minimum number Flickr requires before it will add your account to its search index.

3.) Make sure your privacy settings allow Flickr to add your account to its search index. On this page, UNcheck all 3 boxes:

http://www.flickr.com/account/prefs/optout

4.) Check this page, which is a search on the contest tags, to see if your photo is here. (You can see the tags in the search box.)

http://www.flickr.com/search/?z=m&w=all&q=boston.com+contest+august2010+pets&m=tags

5.) If your photo is there, but it's not in one of our full-screen galleries yet, don't worry -- it will get there. We build those galleries manually.

6.) If you have followed Nos. 1, 2, and 3 above, and still don't see your photo on the Flickr search page in No. 4, then write to us at raw@boston.com, include a link to your photo on Flickr, and we'll check it out.

NOTE: Next month, we're going to try using an in-house photo upload tool built by one of our developers for the monthly contest. That means no Flickr! I'll be interested in hearing what you think about it.

Again, thanks for taking part.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
