2008 Pavel Jerdanowitch Painting Contest Results

The Loser of the 2008 contest is Olga Krolik.

Olga is a designer from Belarus.

Her picture was selected the worst by our voters. Every visitor to the contest's mainpage was offered to vote and about two thousand did so this year. The "Untitled" by Olga Krolik achived badness of 0.53. Badness is the fraction of the voters which selected the painting as the worst. Each voter was shown five randomly selected paintings. Therefore the average badness is 0.2. The maximum possible badness is one and the minimum possible badness is zero.
