Let me know if there's a fix!

Level 8

Same here, using chrome on a Surface Pro.  Only tried the UK link.

Level 3

Yep the link is just refreshing constantly.  Tried on Chrome on my Android phone and on my Chromebook.

@JuanC I'm using Chrome on an HP Pavilion. I've reopened the browser without success, email link still reloading, and I've tried the one in the article, which is doing the same.

Level 2

Using Edge on Windows 10 and the page for the UK keeps refreshing. Can't enter the contest =(

Level 3

Hopefully, this will mean fewer people enter.

Level 3

Same here UK page keeps refreshing in android chrome.

Level 2

Same for me - Google Chrome Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit) on Win10.  Same behaviour in IE Edge.

Emsil link infinitely refreshing on Android phone from Gmail app.

This is going to be good, we'll see a lot of their potential as photographers

Level 4
@MoritzT No, same issue here.
Level 7

Awesome, just entered!

Level 9

@JuanC Of course, always only for 1st world countries. But great news.

Level 5

Yep, same issue here, page infinitely loops and unusable on both Chrome and Edge desktop browsers for the UK link.

I am also having the issue.  The page continuously refreshes so I can't use it!!

Level 4
For Mac users, Safari works, so switch browsers and do it that way. Am now registered. Good luck.
Level 1

thought i'd clicked on a malware link!!! I suggest testing this first next time

 

Level 3

continually refreshing on chromebook pixel with chrome, pixel C with chrome and android with chrome. Might have been an idea to rest the page first. Suggest emailing again when there is a useable link!

Level 3

I'm using a Google Pixel XL with Chrome and the link is looping for me too...

Level 3

UK link in refresh link but also flashes the message "This contest has concluded..." Before refresh.

In case that helps those working on the issue.

Level 7

Good luck to everyone :) 

It's okay with me to let Italy be a Nordic country, if we can get just a bit of the same temperature here in Denmark, as you have in Italy :)

@LucioV

Level 3

Hi,

i would like to know for the Local Guides Photo Competition  does the phones have to be taken at the country you live in,

i live in the uk but have many photos from around the world, i like to contribute towards the competition, does it count.

Thank you 

 

Level 3
Thanks @Psamuwry that Safari tip worked; duly registered!
Sorry @MoritzT the shorter URL has no effect; registration page constantly refreshes.
So this is a Chrome browser issue then.
 
Level 8

Thato awesome! Best of luck to all the locall guides entering! :) 

Well, I'd enter but both my laptop (using firefox and edge) and my android mobile just throw up refresh loops. Tried both through the email and the links on this page.

 

(edit to add:) When you use a refresh blocker it works perfectly fine

Level 3

To fix refresh loop in Chrome install "Auto Refresh Blocker" extension. It helped me. Good luck.

Level 7

Also unable to enter :(

Level 8

auto refresher didnt work on that page either
