Canon 5 Competition

I find competitions in Australia so funny and dodgy, not that i am taking anything away from the finalists of the Canon 5 Competion, however the four images that i entered 3 of them where the top 3 viewed images on the site and the 4th was 6th. Ok i did do some advertsing on the images through facebook.
.
Have a look at the images below

I know this may sound like sour grapes but i believe everyone should be given a fair playing field. You think i would of learnt my lesson from last year, when there was multiple winners with the same name.
.
Tell me your thoughts I would be really interested, and its not only my work have a look at the canon five group you will see what i mean, the calibre of work is way higher then the judges have choosen.

Further more
This is a break down on percentages of the Canon 5 competion
We will take that there is 1 in 700 chance that you will get into the finals
If we increase the odds and say that the person gets, 2 images into the finals
basically it worked out this way 1/700 * 1/700 = 1 in 490,000 chance of happening.
.
Lets look at the second equation
We will take that there is 1 in 6000 chance that you will get into the finals for the first year
If we increase the odds and say that the person gets, 2 images into the finals for two years
basically it worked out this way 1/6000 * 1/6000 = 1 in 36,000,000 chance of happening.
.
And its not happening once or twice it happens over and over again in this competition
