I have entered into insect camouflage a picture of a grasshopper stalking a butterfly and this has been disqualified - I have asked the moderator why but not had a response.
Would like my picture back in the challenge and an explanation as to why it was disqualified.

Iain, this is a problem a lot of us have had. Unfortunately, the moderators of the Community Challenges can run their challenges however they see fit and Pixoto doesn't interfere.

Take heart, I once received an email that I had a photo disqualified from a challenge, and then a few days later I received an email saying that same photo had won an award in that same challenge! I know, weird...........

Best advice I have is to never enter a challenge created by that person again :-)

its only a community challenge, not a pixoto one, so as Lenore says the moderators tend to do what they like....including picking their own shots as winners.Again I agree with Lenore, don't enter one of their challenges again.

Hello Iain, I'm sorry but Community challenge is moderated by user who made challenge.
