    its a subpar image at best. it shouldn't have placed anywhere in any category even if it was the only submission with no guidelines/rules.

    you wanna know why it placed? so it would be controversial and make the rounds around the internet and again, forgotten about by anyone outside that circle.

    I agree, it was selected 3rd for other reasons than it's technical qualities.

    Here’s what the judges had to say about the photo:

    During the judging process, only the title of each portrait is revealed. It was unclear whether the girl was a human or an android, and this ambiguity made the portrait particularly compelling. Tammi’s portrait offers a provocative comment on human evolution.


    This is extremely lame.

    I've done photos of animals that I call portraits, so, IMO, the whole 'picture of a person' is not the sole definition of a portrait, BUT that's just a plain, crappy image.

    But animals would count under those rules that required a "living sitter." Are androids "living"? Do they dream of electric sheep?
