Contests still running after date "Winners Announced"

Hi Jasenka

Is my assumption correct that in case contests are still running after date "Winners Announced" that this is caused  by the low participation in Pixoto in general? 
Not enough people are voting, so it is hard to reach the "Votes Allocated" number I guess.

As an example: https://www.pixoto.com/contests/vacation-place-to-visit 
Votes Allocated is 6755 and Votes Cast is currently 4082. So I assume the contest remains running until it has reached Votes Allocated.

Thanks

Hi Ad, the contest will remain in the voting stage until "Cast Votes" is equal or more than "Allocated Votes", even if that pass "Winners Announced" date. When that happens contest will close and winners will be announced.

Would be cool to have an option to only see contest photos in the voting system. Sometimes they don't pop up much and you get bored by all the horribly blurry photos in the "Leaderboard" that come up.

Hello Mel, seeing only contest images would give user too much power over contests and could lead to cheating.
