“Apple announces a contest where they don’t properly compensate the winners” would be a more accurate headline....

Do you people talk **** without doing any research at all?

??? Almost all images are edited in some way. Why is that bad for a photography competition? Unless it is a strict journalistic contest I would expect editing.
The intent of the contest is "shot on iPhone", not "shot on iPhone and then edited to death with third-party software".

IMO, all editing should be done on-phone using only Apple-bundled software (like the Camera app). In other words, it should showcase what anybody could (theoretically) produce using just an iPhone.

If you don’t like the terms, don’t play the game. Everyone knew what they were getting into. There was no deception—no bait and switch.

Whining about such a thing is akin to complaining about not getting a paycheck after volunteering.
