Hi Leila,

it probably depends on what you call "excluded from the competition". In 
my experience, in most cases juries in the first step handle all the 
submitted pictures and filter out pictures which have zero chance of 
winning. This also includes pictures which are not eligible. Whether one 
should then remove the WLM template from the pistures, I think, it is up 
to the country organizers (and if you decide that the templates should 
be removed, a dedicated category is the best choice).
