I took that picture!  It was indeed a new PB for my friend Jenny.  Where is my goody bag please?!

the above link to RW Picture of the Month - December 2010 gallery

says  "Sorry! This album is not available."

and is doesn't appear in the dropdown when I try to upload to a shared album

am I doing something wrong, or is everybody having this trouble?

Hi Daz,

Are you going here:

How frustrating - it is coming up fine for myself and the tech team.

If you try the longer way round - ie click on 'My Profile'  and then select 'My Gallery', then click on 'upload images into a shared album' and choose 'RW Picture of the Month - December', does it work? The album will be right at the bottom of the drop down menu.

Let me know how you get on, I'd hate to miss out on your pics!

Alice, it's not working for me either.  I thought I might enter my picture which you used above into the competition...
02/12/2010 at 14:59

yep, tried that link, no luck

my dropdown list is in alphabetical order (starting with "aaa adventure" and ending with "Various stuff") and has no entry beginning with "RW" under the r's

02/12/2010 at 15:08

Definitely not working

02/12/2010 at 15:16
Unfortunately also having problems when trying to upload to a normal gallery system crashes

Same for me, I'm afraid.  I can't go direct to the album from the link in the article and the album isn't in the list of shared albums if I go in from 'my profile'.

Alice - will you let us know when the tech team get it sorted?


03/12/2010 at 11:29
same here!

LOVE that pic - her expression is priceless.
03/12/2010 at 14:02

er... can we hear from somebody who CAN access these piccies - maybe they can tell us what we're doing wrong?

Alice - how may piccies have been uploaded so far - does it appear that lots of people are having no trouble?

06/12/2010 at 12:46
Nope, can't access the gallery, and it's not listed amongst the shared galleries available to upload into.
06/12/2010 at 16:42

Well I'm voting for Melanie then. Have I misunderstood or have RW borrowed the pic without a credit? Do the decent thing team

06/12/2010 at 18:18

The photo is marked as All Rights Reserved, so they really should have asked if they could use it, let alone give credit for it.

It's an excellent picture by the way!

Section G.1

(c) (to the fullest extent possible) you waive any rights you may have under Chapter IV of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (or under any similar or analogous provisions under any other statute, law or regulation) in any information or any materials that you submit to us for posting or including on this website.

Nothing appears to be happening on this, hope it is not a ruse just to get people to upload pictures into their galleries so that magazine can use them in the future.

Tried editing/deleting the pic I uploaded andkeep getting an error message.

Either the  software or host system being used to run this competition and gallery isn't working - in which case RW have had sufficient time to rectify problem or there is a wet haddock under my table.

I didn't submit the picture to Runner's World, so I haven't waived any rights.  I've now found out that a friend of a friend sent it in and I have emailed Alice asking about the use of my photo in these circumstances but received no response!

I hope everyone takes note of that section from the T&Cs - by uploading photos on this site you are waiving all copyright in them and RW can use them in their own promotional material with no credit or royalties to you.  I suggest you don't upload any photos on this site unless you're happy to be working as an unpaid RW photographer! 

Thanks everyone for the positive comments on it anyway.
