There was certainly no attempt on the part of the entrant to pass the work off as his own and the rules did not state - as many do - that it should be the entrants photo, so the inclusion was innocent. Think of it this way - we all saw an interesting shot but to avoid a deluge of "Others" work, I think the rule should be part of the site standards.

If you want to display other peoples work it can be done in your gallery with the correct acknowledgements. In ANY competition one expects the contestants to be competing their own work/talents /skills. It should not even have to be specifically stated in the rules. Do we have to state EVERYTHING which would normally be implied. It's cute that he put an acknowledgement on the photo, but this was just a facetious attempt to get around the fact that it's CHEATING. The host should have immediately DQ'd the photo.   There is enough cheating going on here without "honest" cheating now making it's way in.
