Spotted this yesterday in southern Indiana. It's definitely a spreader...

For any new challenge, it will be very clearly stated that people can only submit their own pictures. Should be fairly obvious, but these days one has to play safe.

The entry that got the most votes was invalid. So we do the voting again. That is the only fair way. If people haven't changed their minds there is no action necessary. for those who cast their votes for the disqualified entry, you can either do nothing, or find another candidate to vote for.
Totally agree with the above. All I am suggesting is to put this text in place of what is posted in red now

The NG Management does not want similar incidents to occur in the future and we remind any member that copyright to intellectual property, under which photography belongs, is a valuable asset and should be treated accordingly. We will not, however, do any policing of entries and suchlike, but rely on the integrity of our members.

Sorry for all the problems I have caused.

Let's close the case. I'm convinced we won't meet a similar dilemma next time.

That's the essense of the issue.
If your photograph is just a duplication of another photograph, I'd say not so much.
If you present someone else's piece of art in a creative new perspective as part of a different composition, thereby adding something inspired that wasn't there before, I think you can justify calling that new creativity your art.
And even if the technical quality of the image is less than perfect, the art is in the conception itself, the rest is just technique.
I think this is a good discussion to have. And ultimately, more important than the original challenge subject.
