I think there-in lays the source of the problem.......Because it is ultimately up to the Judges to decide the winner, folks simply cant be bothered to trawl through the 1000's of entries to vote, as they know that their vote dont mean a jot in the final outcome.
I have always believed that the whole "user vote"/"show your appreciation" thing is a to make the judges job easier and less time consuming. Think about it, all they have to do is see which shots got the most votes and short list those for the final selection process.
Someone could enter a great shot right at the start of the competition that accumalates a lot of votes over the course of it...yet someone who enters a shot of equal standard may enter a few days before the closing date and get less or none......judges look through the highest voted and the guy/gal who entered right at the end gets overlooked.....
I may be wrong...but thats the way I've always seen it...
