RANK SYSTEM

What is it and what is it for?

Our ranking system is used to determine the rank and quality of photographers based on the various awards they receive over a given period. The global rank shows the ranking of the best photographers since the launch of the website.

How does it work?

All submitted pictures are checked by our editor daily and the best pictures are selected for Official Selection. Every day the our editor selects a Picture of the DAY that is published on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter. The best pictures from the previous week will be awarded as a Picture of the WEEK and the best pictures from the previous month will be awarded as a Picture of the MONTH. Of course, the other prizes is continuously awarded as a Photographer of the week or month.

How many points will I earn for the photos in my portfolio?

You get points for each awarded picture as follows:
  • Official Selection (Editor Choice): 0.2 points
  • Picture of the DAY: 2 points
  • Picture of the WEEK: 5 points
  • Picture of the MONTH: 10 points
  • Picture of the YEAR: 20 points

  • Photographer of the WEEK: 10 points
  • Photographer of the MONTH: 20 points
  • Photographer of the YEAR: 30 points

Do you find it complicated? Don't worry, our algorithm reliably recalculates and keeps the rank up to day. The points are not credited automatically but are recalculated continuously, so the rank will not increase immediately after the award.
