From today, WLM India team will start the review process of the photographs submitted in the competition.
There was a delay of 6 days in initiating the review process because the judging tool which we use, had some major issues and was not allowing us to log in the tool. The developers had rolled out few fixes and the tool is working now.
Like previous years, the organizers will review first 2-3 rounds to filter out images with obvious issues like out of scope, presence of watermarks or timestamp, bad tilt, blurry images, over-processed images etc and then forward the filtered images to the jury members who will take another 2-3 rounds to finish the review and declare results. As we have started a week late to review, we might finish a week late compared to previous years.
