Re: Cheats never prosper... WPOY winner disqualified

indeed

having attended the museum for presentations following the 2008 awards I was amazed by the overall standard shown.

it's a shame they haven't decided to make the award to the runner up though - effectively that person is the one 'robbed' by the course of events.

I can understand how someone might get caught up in a technical infringement (cloning out a mars bar wrapper in the corner of an image for example) but this is something else entirely.

as you say - sad.... (goes back to working on his yeti image which is coming on really well....)

who was really only after the photographer

However, I don't see why the runner up could not be awarded the first prize. After all, all the photographs were judged under the same conditions i.e. blind with the photographers remaining anonymous.
