Sincere thank you to the Still Life Winner
Jul 14, 2013

After thinking about it overnight I have concluded that the first place price winner in the "Still Life, Vase and a Single Flower"; has done more to point out the problems of 1/2 star voting, multiple identities and challenge hosts do not  enforce the subject guidelines then all of the posts and threads about the cheaters and challenges.

They have successfully illustrated that with possible subjects that don't meet the guidelines, with multiple entries from the same person under different names, winning with an off subject picture that the challenges are not to be taken seriously, and loading the scoring with 1/2 star votes.

The challenges still make good inspiration if your creativity need a push, but as far as winning a DP Challenge being on your resume it isn't worth anything. For those that lost you where beaten eaten at the Boston Marathon by a guy on a bike.

I am going to be positive and say they designed this farce to improve the challenges and have provided the ultimate show of what the owners of DP Review want to repair if this part of the site is to have any value.
