Of the 37 challenges open for voting at the moment ONE has a capture date rule, all others have "no restrictions". The one challenge with a capture date rule is "My Best Photo this Week".
The fact that the rules form has a capture date box does not mean every challenge is restricted by date. I think the hosts do not restrict talent with this rule.

I can assure you that Piscasso and Baily are not members of DPR. If you intend to show other peoples work, be sure to make it known.

You have been a member less then three weeks and it shows.

He may be a new member, but from what he typed he gives me an impression of being an old hand at photography. (Which is what this site is about)

I do think the capture date is difficult to enforce which is a pity. If you look at fujimugs.com, the entries are very refreshing.

However the concept of these dates do have a meaning in competitions. For example why does the Academy only consider movies which are shown in a particular time-frame? Why can't last year's winner compete again with the same movie?
