Hello!

I just submitted Candid XI and noticed that despite it being archival it is requesting that we have shot the image after Jan 30th 2023. I'm sure it's just a typo and won't change anything but it might confuse someone :)

Looking forward to it!

EDIT - Actually it did flag the dates of my entry as invalid after the submission, so for now I've put Jan 31st but it was not.

That is a known issue that pops up now and then when uploading. Just change the date to make it happy. If your entry receives a validation request, the correct date will be verified from your original image.

Happened to me when uploading to "Delicate", even though my image and it's EXIF showed it was shot within the entry period.

That's true when submitting on the first day for sure, but usually for archival they put the date as January 1st 2002 as the earliest but here it's still 2023. I'm sure you're right that it won't be an issue though :) Good luck!

The date bug also shows up on the last day -- I think there's something in the code which references "Universal Time" rather than "server time" (there's a 5-hour difference).

But in this case the start date is indeed a mistake, possibly correctable ...

We forgot to change the eligibility date to 2002 when we posted it. I have changed that now.
