I've never seen a word about how to post an entry. Is this a closed DU group or something?

Announcements about any upcoming contest are posted in the Photography group

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1036

Usually, a thread is also posted in GD and The Lounge announcing an upcoming photo contest.

Example: as host for this March contest I posted a thread in Photography group which provided the
links in GD and The Lounge announcing the contest and asking members to keep those
threads kicked so people would see them http://www.democraticunderground.com/103651158

Submission threads are held open for a week or until 30 photos (limit) are submitted. This time, we filled
our 30 slots in less than a week.

We also have Seasonal contests. The next seasonal contest will be Spring and the submission thread
will open for that on June 1st (specified in contest rules of the Photography group).

The winner of this month's contest will host the next contest--April--so watch the Photography group
for an announcement about that in terms of theme and date Submissions will be opened.

We love having new members!
