I do understand that point. But to appear to accuse a photographer of fraud on a public forum without any proof? I completely disagree with the
approach of the OP.
I don't know Davide Lopresti and I don't follow the competition circuit, having only ever entered a handful over the years. I have no idea of the
submission opening and closing times of the competions in question. If the OP is solely pointing the finger at competition organisers not vetting
finalists as per their stated competition rules then there certainly is an issue with them and their application of rules agreed upon.
My issue with the OP is the annonomous mud slinging. If they are sure of something, they could provide proof and have the courage of his/her
convictions to do so in person. There is no clear proof other than inferrence that the entrant acted without conscience.
