In my country corruption is almost epidemic, people don’t respect rules or laws. I put my faith in cgsociety prestige and entered this contest.
Watching the last comments made to the published finalists, I ask you to retire all my 26 entries with my finalist too, because I DON’T want to be part of this dirty contest, you can delete my account too.

Man, It’s really sad you quit the contest by yourself. I didn’t foreseen people’s reaction with my complaints about the 6th rule… Cheaters should have quited, not you.

Best wishes to all
