Do I get a prize for taking one of the photos used in the banner?

I often wondered where the designers got some of those images from!

"The overall winner will be the photograph with the most reader votes"

Is this regardless of what the average of those reader votes is? And does this not favour pictures that have been sitting on the galleries for a while already, at the expense of pictures submitted (or even taken!) for the competition? Or is that in fact part of the game? Seems to be somewhat open to "photo-trolling" wherein someone might put up a deliberately bad photo and invite votes and criticism in order to attain "the most reader votes".

Just a thought...


(there are some superb shots in the competition gallery that have never had a vote. One is from 2004 I think! I'm going to give it a score now)
