The organizers of the event or collection will send you a notification regarding submission acceptance either through site Notifications, email, or both.
If you are waiting to hear about your submission acceptance, there are some things you can do to help the process:
1. Make sure your submission is Submitted
If you have not clicked Submit in your submission before the deadline, it is considered incomplete.
- Clicking Submit indicates to organizers that all required fields are completed and the submission is ready to be considered.
- If you clicked Submit, then later clicked Edit to make changes, be sure to click Submit again. Submissions left in an Edit state after the deadline may not get evaluated.
2. Check the completion deadline for submissions
Submissions are usually reviewed after the submission deadline date has passed. You can see the deadline for each of your submissions in your Dashboard.
3. Check the submission contact
Did the submission form ask for the name and email address of a contact person? If so, all communication about the submission will be sent to that email address. Is the email address spelled correctly?
- If you specified someone other than yourself as the contact, check with that person to see if they received any submission messages.
4. Check your junk mail filters or folders
Sometimes accept or decline emails get identified as junk mail and hidden from your Inbox.
- Check any junk mail or "clutter" folders you may have for the message.
- To help messages get to you, be sure to add "omnipress.com" as well as the association's email domain to your "safe senders" list. If you're not sure how to do this, your IT department should be able to help.
5. Check your Notifications
If you think you may have missed an email, communication about your submission may also be sent through the Notifications system.
- You can read all your messages in this site at any time by signing in and clicking Notifications.
Contact the organizers directly
If you need more information about submission acceptance right away, event or collection organizers should be your first point of contact.
- Try checking the event's website for contact information.
In general, site Technical Support staff will not know if your submission has been accepted.
