It's a shame though the photo comp wasn't driven by a community vote, would have been more craic :(

Congratulations to Sebastian Mazurowski for winning the competition.
My laptop finally died and I cannot find Sebastians user name but I am sure he will be along to claim his prize.

Well done dude. 8-)



The winner was picked by Rob from Maidenhead and I think he made the right choice. Public voting
was prohibited this time because every time we have a competition some one either tries to cheat,
or votes for themselves.This was the reason why we had stopped the competitions for so long.
In order to revive the competitions the Committee decided that allowing the Sponsor to pick the winner
the best and fairest way forward.

Congrats again to Sebastian for winning the competition. Well done dude.

Sure just disqualify the cheaters and allow people to vote for themselves....easy :D

It is not that easy dude.
We would have shitty photos winning. Members bitching over not knowing the rules etc.
Not going to write down all the reasons but I have been running competitions for six years now and I know
what is involved.

Also thinking if the sponsor is donating the prize shouldn't he/she be the one judging the contest? Well done to Sebastian

Well done to Sebastian.
Many thanks to Rob and Maidenhead for their support.


Don't want this thread to turn into a moaning one,but I want to reinforce what Anthony said.We have had too many occasions of all sorts of grief over these comps,they're intended for a bit of fun but there are so many pricks out there who have to ruin everything,you've no idea of what goes on behind the scenes here.We run the comps,and people cheat and sabotage,we don't run the comps and people moan,so we run them with rules to cut down on the grief,and still people moan.can't win.
