How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

NEW YEAR SYSTEM UPGRADES: DigameXtra has extended the daily submissions deadline to 6pm to accommodate businesses that have “tarde” hours. I have also upgraded the blog to now accept photos of up to 4Mb file size, to accommodate those less tech savvy readers who cannot figure out how to shrink photo file sizes. However, if you are able to do so, please limit photos to 2Mb file size.

Scam Alert: Fake UN Official Busted For Fraud, Soliciting Funds. National Police has arrested a woman of Nigerian origin in Denia for the alleged crime of fraud. The arrested was posing as the President of UN-Women in Spain and the Spanish National Committee of UN Women on the Internet, even going so far as to take part in conferences and interviews with media agencies.
The African woman was in charge of offering courses in Judicial Expertise through which she adopted a false official character.
In addition, she was in charge of fundraising for the development of supposed projects related to the institution she was pretending to represent.
The police investigation began in mid-2018 when UN Women reported that a woman was posing as their president and had been requesting funds online for fake projects. At the same time, UN-Women maintained contact with the investigated to request that she cease and desist in her illegal activities, although the now detained refused.
