Why does it bother you?

I actually like the idea that all the entries are shown only at the end. Because this way no one will be looking at other people's work instead of looking at their own first. Seeing other people's work first might affect your motivation and creativity, in other words, it influences you. And well, who doesn't like surprises anyway? :)

There was once a drawing contest at LF2 facebook group where there were like approximately 10 people willing to participate. The first entry was so good, that only one other person bothered to post another entry. So we had a voting phase between 2 entries... This is not what is meant in a contest. What's important, in my point of view, is that everybody participates if they can, regardless of their skills. This way we can actually have fun seeing people's creativity (because concept matters), instead of a voting phase between 2 or 3 awesome entries but no variety because all the others got intimidated.

If you like you can show your entry right away, but that's your choice like bashscrazy pointed out...
So unless you don't care about how your entry might influence others, it's a viable choice. (though it spoils the surprise)

I don't understand what you want. Should all the entries be anon, or should all the entries not be anon? If it comes to such a poll, I prefer that all be anon. But in either case, you'd really not be given a choice. :/

I understand you may feel that way, but what I am trying to explain here is that you should try to look inside yourself (that's what gives your work a characteristic feeling) instead of being influenced by others. But seems like the simple fact that the thread is empty is already influencing you...? Please don't mind the thread and competition, winning is not what's at stake here, winning is just a bonus.

I am not ignoring your argument... please forgive me if I misunderstood you...
