POTD Contest Suspension Guide

Model Mayhem is adopting a new system for our contest suspensions. This article discusses how the new system works.

Images submitted to the POTD and POTD 18+ should always comply with all of Model Mayhem’s Terms of Usesite rulesimage rules, and contest rules.

Images that are disqualified from the contest will be assigned points based on the infraction type. Please note that certain infractions are worth more than others in an attempt to dissuade violations of the rules.

When someone’s points reach a certain level, a specific suspension level from the contests will be issued. These points are cumulative, meaning after each suspension your points will continue to accumulate and your next suspension will be at the next level. Points are also assigned to each person, not each account, so keep this in mind as you participate in the contests.

To avoid disqualifications, and to continue to enjoy suspension-free contests, you are welcome to contact the Model Mayhem team and inquire about any image you may want to submit. You can either Contact a Moderator and link to an image you’ve uploaded to your portfolio, or email the image file to [email protected] – whichever you prefer.
