Seems cool! I found something wierd though.

Your deadline says end of July, but the first picture choosing rule implies each contest is a week. Which is it?

Also, please spell check, there are lots of little mistakes.

I think I'll try this out if I'm allowed on. My parents have to recieve my report card first though, so until the tenth, I can not say for certain if I'm allowed to participate.
