Experience with submissions to JDPN

Hello Orchid Friends,

last January I (and probably most of you as well) got an e-mail
forwarded by JDPN soliciting images for a “Contemporary jewelry
book”. I sent my images, but got no reply. Two weeks later I
contacted the person in charge, asking if she received my email, but
again got no reply. I was just wondering if this is the usual
proceedings - do you only get a reply if they want your entry? Would
sure be nice to at least receive “thanks, but no, thanks” note. What
is your experience with submissions?

best regards,
