I'm waiting for the day (well, not "waiting", I intend to enter the contest), but anticipating the day that contests can be 200k as challenges are. 100k is just not sufficient to portray any kind of quality work.

That might be a valid point. A person already entered can see things others have done, or something they might have overlooked, and keep changing until they have all the ideas of others combined into their image.

But, also, if you wait to the very end to post an entry, you can still 'borrow' others' ideas. It's a problem, either way. I think I will wait till near the deadline. I was going to improve the full lenghth portrait, already had, when new posts suggested a more close-up version. Now, not certain which way to go.

Another forum (Innographx) I belong to just had a contest. No entries were 'published' until the voting began. All entries were then assigned numbers. You voted with a number and it was done. Very 'clean'. No tweaking of entries,no borrowing, etc.

But from what I saw of the colorizing discussions, this site does not have that capability. BUT, the moderator at INNO used a free image posting site to post entries for the voting. Didn't someone here do that with the previous contest??

Keep entires hidden until voting.
Assign numbers instead of names.
Publish entries in a gallery for easy viewing.
Allow all "registered" members to vote.

All those are excellent ideas.

I think Vikki would be honoured if someone tried to copy or use some of her techniques, however, many can follow but few can lead. I changed my image at least 20 times in the first contest and look where it got me.

Sometimes people might not go back and check for changes.
