Limit the number of photos submitted to a contest and definitely remove all similar ones. One of the latest contest, one person entered 160 photos and majority similar ones.. This put in disadvantage to others.

I looked to this contest, and as new member I agree with this topic, It is not normal to put such a number of entries.
Or the person who is the moderator of this contest have to remove the surplus number of entries, otherwize the pixoto board must halted this.
It will otherwise have a bad impact on future contests as this situation will be remain.

Hello Luz, community contest moderators are free to limit the number of entries to their contests (by stating so in either description of contest or in additional rules). If moderator didn't limit the number of entries, each user can enter as many images as they like.

We do have a rule that very similar images are not allowed - please check rules here: https://www.pixoto.com/photography-co...

So if you see very similar images, please do report them (please note that images older then 6 months from reporting time will not be moderated for very similar images rule).

I hope this helps.
