    Geoff says

    Get your act together Nikon!
    You invite people to enter your competition and it takes ages to find the entry form. The customers kindly give you lots of good marketing info then you don't let them upload their photos to enter the competition.
    I have spend ages trying to upload my entries but the Nikon server obviously can't cope. Extremely poor website - next to useless. A very dissatisfied cutsomer.


    Photography News says

    Update from Nikon:

    'As of the afternoon of November 30 (Tuesday), the entry deadline, an overwhelming number of entries being submitted via the Internet from all over the world have overloaded the photo contest entry system, sometimes preventing access to entry pages.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused those attempting to submit entries in the Nikon Photo Contest International 2010-2011.

    As a result, Nikon Corporation has decided to respond to the incredible number of entries in the Nikon Photo Contest International 2010-2011 by extending the entry deadline.

    Nikon Photo Contest International 2010-2011 web site will be updated in the near future, and as needed thereafter, to provide information on the status of the online entry system (access capability) as well as with details regarding the new entry deadline.'
