    A) I can't believe someone would think that this was acceptable, and then try to defend it.

    B) Every competition I have ever seen has had a rule that says that basically anyone with any connection whatsoever with the competition is not allowed to enter, and I'm very surprised that there appears to have been no such rule here.

    I saw that. Even if his photos were the best you can't win your own competition!

    Did anyone really think that a great many photo industry awards/competitions were not a complete swizz..?

    Sure - and I should know because I've judged some - but they're rarely as obvious as this one.
