Keith: This just substantiates my belief that "contests" are extremely flawed, if not somewhat "rigged". The photographer could have, and should have checked the facts when he new his image was in the final stages of "judgement".

In this instance, content and context cannot or should not be separated.

Completely agree. And the judges should have done their job better.

NJGarden: The winning image is very powerful. I do understand that we have to be aware of death and suffering that happen in the world. And it pains me when i see images of children dying.. However, to me, it seems wrong to submit that photo for competition. I am not trying to impose my personal opinion on somebody else, but I don't think gaining fame or profiting in any other way from those moments of anguish and despair is the right thing to do. I may be mistaken, but I am just sharing my personal feelings here.

Leichhardt, I am not accusing anyone. I am just sharing my opinion.
