  3. 16x20 print competition rigged says:

    I just want to make people aware of the things I witnessed in the 16×20 bride and groom print competition.  First of all, I dont think its fair to have judges submit prints if they are in the same category they are judging.  I witnessed Susan Stripling degrade everyones print in the grading and when it was time for her grading, she stood up but she made sure her friend judges would give a good grade.  Her one picture was given a final grade of 85 and Jesh de Rox was honest with his grade and the other judges over powered him with having a rejudge on her print.  She then got a 90 after that.  She was given 5 extra points!  And the Debbs prints was also rejudged.  How unfair to know your score ahead of time and then have it changed.  I think this print competition is so rigged and I am going to put so much energy into making sure everyone that submitted prints knows what happened because there was so many beautiful prints that were way better then hers!  And she made sure that they would not have a higher score.  I will never submit pictures again because of this.  If you are going to have judges, then they should be people with no connections!

    There needs to be an investigation.  She won two awards and also she was the judge. Go figure!
