I just answered here http://www.pixoto.com/challenges/pier...

I think it's because you entered similar images, not only once but twice ...
and if it was me i will consider it as 4 times and disqualify all of them ...

Description: Please, no similar shots by same contributor!

I disqualify 2 pictures:
http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
reason: similar image, flip horizontally

http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
reason: digital art

I belive that description and rules of the contest are clear. Best regards :)

Why You alloved to submit more than 10 images per phograf each category per day or to the challenges? Its very frustratid to take part when sombody allwed to submit 20-30 often similar photos.Counted once att one and same ghotograf had submit more than a half of all pictures.

Anitta Lieko, this was my first challenge. Next time I'm going to avoid some situation.

I am more sadistic with those kind of people!

i just add few words in "additional comment" like that they get the automatic added Pixoto's posting rules in this "additional comment" and it let me disqualify ALL similar pictures, watermarked, cropped with the uncropped, and so

i do not have to choose the picture they want to keep if they put 2 similar, i disqualify both of them! may be next time they will care...

rules for next contest:
- limit the number of photos for each participant, all other photos will be disqualified
- black and white version of the same photo will be disqualified or color photograph will be disqualified, if it was added to after BW
- photos of the same object with different backgrounds will be disqualified
- different "crop" of the same shot will be disqualified
- Digital Art will be disqualified
- photos that do not belong to contest of the content will be disqualified

I believe that such rules should apply to all the challenges.

I apologize for grammatical errors. however, I hope that the content of the proposal is understandable

on the other hand, why shall we expect tightening of rules? in the challenge Bridging the Landscape the winning photos are also piers, highway, path, huts on stilts etc.
