That's at least 2 out of 4 submissions this week that have been stolen from the work of others, surely you can't think we are that dumb...

I can see how getting all four entries rejected on your first try would be pretty frustrating. Let's go back to square one. Read the rules, which apply to every derby.

Don't use other people's work. Don't trace from photos or other pictures. It's called plagiarism, it's intellectual property theft, and it's illegal to sell it. All four of your entries seem to have done this, and it's the one big rule.

There's politics on the derby about this, as you may have already seen. There are questions about variable enforcement. I'd personally like to see a minimum one-month ban from the derby for demonstrable photo or clip art plagiarism to discourage people from gambling on not getting caught.

But yours were, for better or worse, all really obvious, and you got caught. If you didn't know the rule, you do now. Tracing is theft. Please don't. Thanks!

Thanks, I appreciate the response. I'll try harder next time.
