Thank you very much for the only reply to something important.
Yes, I am sure that a better title would have been "limited colour"

We could have avoided submissions with too much attention on the "monochrome" and thus focusing on the composition .

True, but a headline is simply a headline, and rules are rules:

5. I'll be generous in my interpretation of monochrome (see examples)

I could not have been clearer in my rules - and the golden rule of any photo competition is to read the rules. Your last line makes sense until you think about it more: a good photograph doesn't concentrate on one aspect of photography, but embraces a number of factors. Subject, composition, lighting, processing... regardless of the title, the bottom line should always be the same, and as stated in my narrative:

IMPORTANT: this is a photography competition - its not simply a matter of seeing a great subject, its delivering a great photograph of a great subject!

I can't be doing with photo competitions where the winner is simply a sentsational subject but not really a good photograph. If people don't read the rules, then their entry may well not be their most appropriate option.
