Yes, Konark. But I do not want to point figures to one event. In my view all events are culprits.
Imagine the problem of processing 15K images of the Tamil contest - I shudder to think! Suggestion : No image should be considered eligible for competition till it is uploaded with : * proper description. * suggested/recommended article for image use or for creation. * proper categorisation in Commons. Have volunteers available to help photographers. The photothon should end in an uploading function where volunteers help in these aspects.
