I think the contest is a great idea however I feel the judges should have the final say! I also think that all people entering the contest must adhere to the guidelines to the contest and any entries that do not follow the guidelines should not be allowed to enter the contest. I was really disappointed in the best organized studio contest. The winner clearly did not follow the guidelines of the contest rule.
