Thanks for posting this (and giving us yet another opportunity to plug the
event! :)

The reason for this is that the copyright will be added directly on the
image by us for the versions posted on the web for all to view, but the
images seen by the judges (for obvious reasons) must not have a name
burned into it, and published images will have photograph credit printed
as appropriate for the magazine (often rotated 90 degrees and offset
into the inner margin of the page).

I'm forwarding this to the showcase discussion list.  It's too late to
really do anything about this for this year's run, but maybe can make it
onto our online FAQ or next year's guidelines.
