I know that your answer was tongue in cheek, but it does bring up a 
serious question.  Should one submitter be able to submit more than one 
image for a round or should we limit it to only one?  If we allow every 
artist several submissions per round, then the same artist could 
conceivably win all the prizes.

Thoughts?

If that were the case then surely she or he would deserve the placing?

  Another possibility is that people can submit several images but win
only one prize. Even if another image of his gets enough votes to get
a second prize, it's not counted in the top-3. (Instead, it could be
mentioned in a separate list of honorable mentions or whatever.)

  Just an idea.

To me it seems artificial to impose limits.  You want to get the best 
possible submissions each time.  I think that the anonymity feature will 
help though.

Well, I think if someone was actually so good as to be able to make the 3 
best images, maybe they should win all 3.  What are the chances?

However, that could lead to a 'lock out' over a long period of time.  So I'd 
be tempted to say "sure" but then for every winning image, you have to take 
that round 'off', minus one.  Meaning, if you won with one image, you could 
submit the next round.  If you won with three images, you'd have to take off 
2 months in a row.  Someone else needs a chance!

Just brainstorming

  That doesn't sound very fair to me. It's like you get banned, penalized
for being too good.
