Subject or artistic merit
6

It seems that in many challenges folks give high scores (even challenge winning scores) based on the subject rather than any artistic merit the photo may exhibit.

Shouldn't photos entered into challenges be judged on their artistic merits rather than simply the prettiness of the subject?
