  1. Cannot wait to see what people come up with! Will all the entries be open for viewing once the show is completed?

  2. I’m probably missing something super obvious - where do we send the entry fee?

    1. I knew I would forget something! I've updated the page to include my paypal info.

  3. Which class would a unicorn in renaissance costume go in and same for something Narnian themed or Elvish?

    1. It's really hard to say without seeing the photo. These prompts are really open ended. If you're clever enough, you could probably make it work in multiple spots.

  4. Help me... I am lost here. I filled out an entry form. Do I do that for each entry? I would like to enter a few photos but clearly seem to be computer illiterate. How do I proceed?

    1. You only need to fill out the entry form once. Photos are uploaded individually to the Smug Mug album using the log in information included in this post. If you have questions, I strongly recommend joining the PPP Facebook group.

  5. Thanks so much for your reply_ much appreciated! :) I won't do Facebook, so it's probably better for me not to participate. Happy Showing!

  6. Something is wrong.
    4. outdoor performance disappeared ??
    Is there a chance to upload the pictures again?

    1. The Outdoor Performance album was accidentally deleted by one of the entrants. We've created a new album and will extend the entry deadline to let people re-upload their entries. Please do it as soon as possible.

  7. Thank you Jennifer!

    Hopefully all participants will notice.
