Hello, my name is Gabriel and I´m an Argentinian photographer. First of all, sorry for my English, it´s basic. This morning, one of my pictures was rejected because of the fact that I completed the location name in this form: city - airport name (argentinian authorities identification code). The point is the following: some smalls aiports in Argentina don´t have IATA or ICAO code, for this reason, I usually complete the airport information using the argentinian authorities identification code. Using this proccedure, I could upload a lot of photos, and accepted this information, when included in its list the folowing airport: General Rodriguez - Ildefonso Durana (GEZ), where "GEZ" is the argentinian identification code. In this case, my rejected photo, used the same name structure: Canals - Club de Planeadores Canals (CNS).

I can´t understand why, in the past, I could upload a lot of photos using this procedure and now the photos was rejected.

Somebody can help me?

Thanks and best regards from Argentina.

Hi, if you click on one of the help links on the upload page, you will find the rules for location info:

Use the format:
Cityname followed by space dash space, the airport name, and between brackets the IATA/FAA code, space slash space, and the ICAO code, e.g. "Amsterdam - Schiphol (AMS / EHAM)". Do not add the word "Airport" or "Airfield".

Local airport identifiers (as in Argentina) should thus not be used.
