Sorry folks, but you are correct. I just tried to vote for my own photo, and sure enough, it LOOKS like you can, but a pop-up pops up, and it won't register the vote!

If there are enough voters in any given challenge, it wouldn't matter whether one can vote for own work or not, but since it's not possible, nobody is tempted.

Chaulk it up to a newbie asking a question! I will never be on-par with most of the photographers here (which is rather upsetting), so winning a challenge won't happen anyway...

Wrong attitude! Always regard the voting horizon as a Great Unknown, because there is absolutely no telling what will happen. No same people always vote. No theme is equally interesting. No voters are equally competent for any two themes. No voter is careful and/or attentive in the same way twice. No sandbagger percentage is same.

Nothing is constant in the ever changing abysmal depths of voters' ... expertise...

So, just keep having fun, and remember the very influential "lottery effect"...
