Okay, so I'm too stupid to be able to use the DPC search function.

Honestly, I have never had decent results with it and I'm an out & out genius with Google.

Anyway.......

Where can I find the rules & regs governing Archival challenges, especially where the time frame is concerned?

I want to know if I can shoot now for an Archival challenge listed.

Hi Jeb - There are no rules other than what is stated in the submission form (next to the checkbox).

"I submit that my entry was based on photograph(s) taken with a digital camera on or between Jan. 1st 2002 and Nov. 23rd 2021."

Otherwise, the challenge rules in play are what is stated, in most cases, the Standard Ruleset (more here).

I often shoot for archival challenges. Sometimes it's easier than looking back through so many photos!!

" . . . on or between Jan. 1st 2002 and Nov. 23 2021" - makes absolutely no sense to me.

Archival is archival. Basically, 1) you took it; 2) you've never used it in a challenge here before; 3) you still have the original file; 4) your editing fits the announced challenge rule set. At least that has always been my understanding.

Thanks, people!

I wasn't sure but it seemed that it was okay for me to enter one that just happened to correlate with a challenge description.

Cool!

Jan 1st 2002 is set based on DPChallenge history (startup year). The end date is a moving target and would be whatever the most current date is obviously. I think your bullet points 2 and 3 are also next to the checkbox on submission (I just didn't list the entire paragraph).

I've entered new shots in a few archival challenges.

+ 1000

I enter "new" shots in almost all of the Archival challenges.

Got it. I mis-read 2002 as 2022 :(

I'd offer a ride to your optometrist for a new prescription but Nebraska's not an easy reach for me :-)

I'd diagnose it as dyslexia. I have experience...

I'm an agnostic, dyslexic insomniac. I lie awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.
