Same image twice ...
1

It looks to me as if the same image  (a GBH in the upper left quarter of the frame)  was entered twice in the most recent "A big year - birds 2020" challenge, the one that ends voting in two days from today.

Isn't this a violation of challenge rules?

Shouldn't the host have disqualified one of them before voting started?

It depends on how you view the images. In my experience, if you view them in slideshow mode, it looks like 2 of the same or similar images are entered by the same submitter. If you look at the small size submissions, often it shows one as withdrawn.

Help the host out. Use the complain button, bottom right when you open one or both of the entries.

Plus of course you can vote on one of them and give it half a star as breaking the rules.

Clear violation of the rules.

The host clearly states :

  • if entering 2 shots they should be different species
  • no photograph should be entered into this challenge series more than once

unquote

Maybe it was not intentionally.  because there are 5 days between the entering of the two pictures, maybe the host forgot that he had already posted one before.

The host has to decide here.

Hi thanks, for bringing this up, I missed this one.  if you want to flag a photo for pssible violation I suggest the complain button, as a host I will get a notification drawing my attention to it. sometimes people get confused because a they enter a photo and then they can't see their photo or are looking at the wrong challenge and enter it again 1 of the entries will be removed
