  8. Jay Says:

    can you submit a watermarked photo or do they require submissions to have no watermark?

    tnx! ^^

    • wcloudxkumo Says:

      Don’t think you can put watermark on it. So far, all the chosen finalist and winners have no watermark on them.

      So I guess they want a clean one.

  9. Sandykun Says:
