The Photocompetitor.com photo sharing website has been created by photographers for photographers. Being members of other internet photo sharing communities ourselves, we noticed that they lack an element of competition and the thrill of it. We came to the conclusion that evaluation of photos with insignificant votes/points that can be distributed without restraint, slowly distorts the concept of photography social networking.
On Photocompetitor.com photographers evaluate each other's photos only through valuable points. Why? Because it's the most objective and fair way to evaluate - you consider every vote before actually casting it, and each member of the community votes sensibly. Which means that the majority of points go only to those photographs that actually deserve them. A unique system for the exchange of earned points that we've introduced (point voting) ensures that you receive measurable profits in exchange for the earned points.
This site doesn't offer photography competitions, where single photos can be presented. On Photocompetitor.com it is actually your entire photography portfolio that collects points. So it is you as the photographer who wins, not individual photos of yours.
For the first 48 hours photos uploaded onto Photocompetitor.com are displayed as anonymous, so that when evaluating a photo, only the photo at hand is taken into consideration, and not the previous achievements of a photographer. Thanks to that, photographers participate in a fair and objective competition, with minimum involvement of moderators. You can post photos of up to 1.5Mb, which ensures appropriate quality of their presentation on the monitor screen.
Our marketing activities are aimed at encouraging photographers from around the world to join us, as we're looking for diversity, originality, the right atmosphere, history and good technical quality. That is why you can be sure that there'll be a variety of interesting images from many countries around the world for you to see on the site.
Here, it's the quality that counts, not the quantity. Remember, too, that all of the photos you post on the site are automatically available to others for evaluation. So before you decide to publish any photograph on the website, think about what qualities it possesses. In particular cases, photos of little artistic value, those on insufficient technical level or of commemorative nature will be moderated.
