more equitable distribution of prizes

There is a need to unbundle some image categories like Landscape and Nature Up close into sub categories for the purpose of awards as these are vast areas , where large number of pictures are posted. So many deserving pictures are neglected in the crowd. For example what happens in Nature Up Close is that most of the times a macro pictures of water bubbles on some natural objects get selected as No. 1 to 5, Does not this discourage many more deserving shots in the large category of Nature Up Close.
Some good photographers regularly getting top prizes in a category become a little greedy to post a large number of same type pictures on the same day, cornering most of the prizes. They can always redistribute their entries and give others a chance for the prizes. Otherwise they become squatters in a space sending a signal that it would be futile effort to submit your entries .
Many categories like Abstract, Instagram, Illustration, have only a few entries, but they have a number prizes everyday. Here also some members get extra advantage if their forte is one of these spaces. I feel there is some element of inequity in prize distribution system that needs to be ironed out to encourage creativity and larger participation, which , I believe, Pixoto wants to promote.
