Hi ! I too have been entering challenges the past few months and it is quite good fun and if you score the challenges you start to get a feel for photographic criticism. It certainly encourages more thought when you take photos.

You also find that there is often a big difference between your liking of a photo you've taken and what others think. Sometimes it is a big downer !

I too saw funny things happening. For example the 2nd and 3rd places in the Drivin' that Train challenge were placed by certain voters (friends) bombarding them with fives. The photos certainly did not deserve such high places.

Funny that you should bring this up as I just came here for my daily visit to the Panasonic Forum after my first visit to the Challenge Discussions Forum where members discuss such matters at length and you can learn all about "sandbagging" !
See these threads:
Soft sandbagging
What should be done with cheats

Anyway don't be discouraged !
