Responsibility for enforcing challenge rules

The recently completed challenge "Boats" included a rule that clearly stated "Submissions must be full color".

Two entries, that placed joint 22nd, were black and white.

While these entries did not score well enough to change the outcome, they are very clearly in breach of the rules. Some people voting for them apparently did not realise this.

These entries should have been disqualified before ever reaching the voting stage. I assume the challenge host is responsible for this. What is the proper process for notifying the challenge host about this - is it through private message?

How do you think this was allowed to happen?

This is just the first challenge I have decided to "investigate". Who knows what other problems I will find if I start digging!!
