Hi folks,

I love entering this competition and getting absolutely hammered in it....makes me try harder. !! :-D

That said, just wondering, do the final results of each competition get posted in order of overall ratings...... i.e. from left to right we have first, second, third place....but does the order run sequentially from 4th place onward until the end of the list of entrants...or is it only 1,2,and 3rd only??

Just curious.

Hi Damo, best I can tell the listed order of the final results is sequential by score from 1 to the end.

Cheers,
Steve

Since we are on the subject, I'm curious how many votes, on average, get cast for POTW competitions? For example, does a winner usually get more than 20 votes? Less?

Just wondering how many people who don't enter the contests vote.

My apologies for being slightly late on parade with this!

The images for completed contests are displayed on the page in rank order.

Vote number vary depending on the subject etc. The winning entries often receive over 1000 votes!

All the best
