Apart from some self gratification cheaters might be aiming for in these challenges, I think another possible motive for their cheating could be that the cheaters know that some legitimate non cheating members do take these challenges seriously even though DPR make it very clear they do not intend members to take the challenges too seriously and instead as just an opportunity to have some fun.

The cheaters are basically just trying to thwart the legitimate attempts of non cheating members to win a challenge.

Yes, that seems to be the case.

Given the obvious flaws in the voting system, I treat the challenges as just a bit of fun in the full knowledge that cheating is going on.

Yes.

For me, if my entry ends up with an average star rating within 1 star of the "winner" regardless of how many entries are between it and mine then I think to myself that my image is not too bad.

A reasonable way of looking at the outcome of several cases of the voting, although it is a bit sad, isn't it.
