I don't know who votes on these things but seriously, only the bike rider should have gotten a top-three for this sports theme.  And the ratings for others were terrible - there's a photo of a kid playing hockey that looks dark and the composition is also nothing exciting, yet it got a higher rating than mine from what I can see (also hockey - but has action and such)

Am I bitter?  Kind of.  Why?  Not because I thought I should win, but because this particular contest had so much potential (and some people did have great shots) to bring out great sports shots but instead was brought to some stupid poses and terrible sports ideas (two of which won)

That is my rant - if I offended on of the two people who won that didn't take the bike photo, sorry, but I'm calling it like I see it, so too bad

can you post us a link to what you are talking about?.. or the page where the results are.

the first three are winners - two of which I've already stated I strongly disagree with

Just peruse through and I believe most will disagree with the picks

Dreamstime should have the guts to pick the winners themselves and stop with the voting nonsense. 

Anytime the general population gets to vote a popularity vs. quality factor will enter into the equation.

The downside is a bad rating might affect buyer behavior.  Because the file is priced higher because of it's "exclusive contest status" the buyer might choose to go with a proven performer versus an expensive unknown.
