If you are speaking of the Forum-sponsored photo contest I can assure you there hasn't been one since last year nor have any been removed. And only Moderators can remove threads, posts, contests, etc. Even at that, they are sent to a Moderator section titled "Removed Topics;" not permanently deleted. Nothing is permanently deleted. And removing a Forum-sponsored contest would involve notifying the other Moderators and the Administrator.
If you are speaking of a member-sponsored contest it would still take a Moderator to send it to Removed Topics.
If your dog thinks you are the greatest do not seek a second opinion
