New Photo Challenge: Fun in the Sun

By Diana K  ·  March 21st, 2014

Fun in the Sun is the theme for our next Photo Challenge. Now that spring is officially here, it’s time to get out there and shoot!


To participate in the Fun in the Sun Photo Challenge, simply upload your image to either the PET Subscriber Gallery or the Elements Village Gallery by April 30th.

Please be sure to place the phrase “Photo-Challenge” exactly as shown (without the quotes) in the Keywords field if uploading to the Elements Village Gallery, or in the Caption field if uploading to the PET Gallery. This is how we identify images intended for the challenge. If you’re having trouble figuring out the process, check out our Contests page, which offers more detailed instructions, as well as screenshots.

Good luck!

    Is there any way to tell if our photo is seen for a challenge?

    Also, for the subscriber showchase, do you scan all of the photos in a gallery or just ones recently uploaded that particular month?

      Hi Dana,

      Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell if a photo is seen for a challenge. However, I personally go through the PET Gallery and the Elements Village Gallery several times to make sure that each photo is looked at. For the Photo Challenge we go back to when the challenge was originally posted. For the Subscriber Showcase we go back 2 months.

      Hope this helps :)
