Cheaters never win......or do they?

I am a member of the official fuji web site, They run a monthly competition on a themed basis which i and a thousand or so other people enter every month.
I was looking through some of the photographs this morning and i discovered that someone had actually entered a photograph that has come from the Windows Xp sample pics folder!
I cannot believe the audacity of some people, the sad thing is that they probably wont be the only one to have entered an image not taken by themselves.
The disappointing thing is that fuji are supposed to vet the images and yet allowed this one thru.
The entry has caused a lot of people to get a bit upset and a few find it hilarious, which i suppose it is in a way. I am waiting for the end of the comp with interest as I really hope this picture doesnt get placed! lol It will cause an uproar! and on top of that i dont even think it fits the theme of weather.
Would put a link up for all but i think you have to be a member to access it.

Fiona

Re: Cheaters never win......or do they?

As you know Fiona, I used to judge the AOL monthly competition. I had a couple of occasions where people entered shots that looked great.... only to then get an email saying 'that picture was in the sample set with my Olympus camera' or whatever and we'd have to hastily remove it from the winning top ten!

Some people sadly have no shame whatsoever. I wonder if their friends know how lacking in integrity they are.... asuuming the saddos have any friends!

In the camera club I used to belong to <spit> we had a member who entered the club competition with a photo I had seen only three days before at another venue.... It was at a Joe Cornish evening where the master landscaper was showing his wonderful pictures! I ask you, what kind of a numpty tries to cheat by entering a picture by a famous photographer and things out of all the experienced photographers who are going to see it in the competition, nobody is going to recognise it! Well, sadly the answer is: A committee member!

The worst thing was the club chairman refused to take decisive action other than to allow me to to reject the picture from the competition. That was the beginning of the end of my membership at the club as I felt it had lost all integrity.

If the saying was true that 'Those that can do and those that can't teach!' then I guess it must be equally true that 'Those who can, do and those that can't, cheat!'

Sad world but that's how it goes I guess.
Cheers,
Rob

Just right, the offender should've been ejected from the club IMO
