I uploaded a photo on August 15th. It is still not in the contest. I have posted in a forum and I have e-mailed an administrator to ask for help.
As of this evening, I have not gotten a reply, and my animal cake photo is not in the contest.
I appreciate any kind of feed back!
I just had the same experience. I uploaded a photo for the contest last night (August 21st ), got respond from CC as the photo is not exist or something. I thought it might take a while to be posted on the contest photos. I checked again this morning and waiting for hours, still haven't seen my photo in the Animal Cake Contest Photos. I have no idea why.
