    3. I’m stumped by the quality and the great lengths one goes to, to create such wonderful snapshots! I have a long way to go and quite frankly it scares me! Thank you Karl for this unique platform.

      Hi , I hope you are doing well : )

      Quick question. Can we submit photos for weekly challenges that have passed already? As I am a new member I want to post photos starting from week 1 to practice my skills. Also I can’t find where the upload form is. Could you please guide me through this process ?

      Thank you and have a lovely week end !

      1. Hi, no I’m afraid you can’t but you can find the current weekly challenge in your home page and follow the link to the blog post where you will find the upload link. You may also be interested in our current Brief challenge too.
