How do I see the current positions of entries when rating has started?
To see all the photos that have been submitted to a contest and their ranking after the rating period has begun, you must first rate a minimum number of photos, chosen for you at random.
Once you’ve rated the minimum number you can either carry on rating, or opt out of rating any more photos in that contest.
If you choose to carry on rating then you can still opt out at any time later and be shown all the photos including their ranking. But... once you’ve opted out you won’t be able to rate any more photos in that contest.
Please keep in mind that some contests, usually categories within a Photography award, have 'blind' rating. This means that there is no 'opt out' option for you to see where you or the photos you have rated are placed before the results are announced.
