Where do hidden photos get shown?
Hidden photos you enter into contests can get displayed within the contest you’ve entered, especially if you’ve done well. In most judged only contest (such as our Photography Awards) your hidden photo will only be shown if you are given an award by the judge.
If the contest has a public Crowd vote then your photo will be rated on as normal and also displayed on the contest page if applicable. Your hidden photo’s result will ONLY be displayed within the context of the contest and not across the rest of the site. For example, hidden photos that do well will not get shown on the awards page of your profile or on the Best photos page.
