"Snow Covered Landscape" Challenge

How can I find out why an image (entitled "Antartic Blue") I submitted to the "Snow" challange was disqualified? I read the rules (before submission and after disqualification notice) and can't see that I have broken any. The link with the disqualification notice just came up with "ERROR".

I can't see on the website anywhere to make an "appeal".

any ideas please?  Thanks

Well, your year 2011 boat/water picture isn't really what I would call a 'Snow covered landscape':

If that was not the reason for disqualification, it could have been this here:

"-Snow Covered Landscape- (In Full Colours Only). Submit a well composed, well exposed photograph of the above. Please exclude humans from the shot".

I would think that only someone at the challenge can help you. However, as stated above, your boat photo is not a landscape and it contains people.

Post your question in the Challenges Discussion forum, as linked by Lensmate/Martin.

I think you can also message the challenge host directly to ask.

No, there's no reason to contact him. See the description:

Hi Thanks for your reply. Yes, I see it now....but I missed it before. My mistake was reading the "FULL RULES" which made no mention of humans.

Thanks once again

Regards
