    • leave messages for possibly interested people, such as people who created a FP
  3. announce the results, contact the winners
  4. organise various archives
  5. scrutinise votes and detect fraud, respond to allegations of voting fraud
  6. try to ensure the competition is as 'fair' as possible and that all eligible entries are presented equally (e.g. randomise image order)
