Yes about using one's own image on the front page of the contest, but I believe the only option is to use an image you import from the outside, so there is no click-through to the image in your gallery. That's why I started to consider making the image an entry. Thanks for your quick response and info!
The only time it was really bad was when a lady entered her own stuff. Then kicked everyone else out, then made it into a jury only, won then gloated she won her own contest. As long as you don't break your own rules. Or you are a judge to your own picture, I don't think anyone would notice.
Why not? It would be a bit cheesy if it's a judged contest with you as the sole judge, but otherwise a vote of your peers seems fine. There's no cash involved and very little fame, so I guess contests are mainly exposure and diversion.
Completely agree with Janine. We are here to make sales .. and we make sales by promoting ourselves. Add it. If you win, so much the better ... and if you do, promote the win everywhere you can think of !!!! This is the business side of the fun stuff we get to do, and the business side is important!!!!
