Photocompetitor.com is a photo community where every vote cast for a photo has real value. It's the most objective and fair way to evaluate - which means that the majority of points go only to those photographs that actually deserve them.
Please note: this site doesn't offer photo contest, where single photos can be presented. On Photocompetitor.com it is your entire photography portfolio that collects points. So it is you, the photographer, who wins, not a single photograph of yours.
Sale of photos in electronic form
Every user may place his photo for sale and decide by himself as to the price of his photos. He is also able, at all times, to change the price of sale as well as withdraw a given photo from sale. Find out more about the terms and conditions of sale and about the license here.
A single point that you receive by another member of the community voting for your photography portfolio has real value; in the same way you vote for other authors’ photos. Each author can award a given image/photo series with 3, 2, 1 points which can be exchanged for prolonging Premium Membership.
Remember, too, that all of the photos you post on the site are automatically available to others for evaluation.
All photographers can also vote for others with [thumbdown] – such a vote has no value but allows the website moderators to quickly react to photos of poor quality.
Remember to actively evaluate other authors' photos. The more votes you cast, the greater your chances that other authors visit your portfolio and vote for your photos!
Exchanging points for Premium Membership
You can use the earned points to prolong your membership:
1 week – 250 points
4 weeks – 1000 points
12 weeks – 3000 points
52 weeks – 13000 points
Please note: the points earned by you during the free access (Free Membership) don't disappear when you will decide to buy Premium Membership. You can always exchange the points you earn for Premium Membership also.
Renewable weekly limit (only Free Membership)
Over the period of your account validity you may take advantage of: a no limit of points [thumbstar] to vote for other authors' photos and the possibility to upload 30 photos/photo series of your own- it is renewed every week (7 days). This limit is counted down by a meter in your profile.
Please note: Points unused within the weekly limit can't be used within another week!
Every photo uploaded onto Photocompetitor.com is displayed as anonymous for the first 48 hours. Vote to see - you can often see this phrase next to anonymous photos. In order to find out who the author of a given photo is, you have to vote for it by points. Only then will you be able to see who the author is. You can then visit that author's portfolio, as well as look through their photos and vote for them. Simply speaking, after objectively casting a vote there can more interaction between the members of our community.
We introduced this solution because the objective evaluation is crucial - it is important that when evaluating a photo, only the photo at hand is taken into consideration, and not the previous achievements of its author. Thanks to that, you participate in a fair and objective competition.
Anonymity also minimizes the formation of groups with members mutually voting for one another with high numbers of points and always positively evaluating each other's photos, regardless of their quality - a phenomenon disliked by most photographers who value honesty and clear rules.
