From the trenches of a photo contest

As noted before, the annual photo contest presents a few challenges. In addition to the 15+ mail crates (storage can be tricky) and the unlabeled entries (the rule exists for a valid reason, believeyoume), the envelopes' size can pose a predicament.

Perhaps you're thinking, "Oh, what is she complaining about now?" I'm not so much complaining as befuddled.

If the largest accepted print size is 8 inches by 10 inches, why do participants send their entries in flattened boxes that measure 15x21"? The logic escapes me. Why not use a 9x12" envelope?

Such are the thoughts of an editor faced with handling and evaluating the entries in these five crates and 12 more in another office!
