Thanks for this list. Gives me lots to look forward to. At top of each category could you show the Grande total of entries in it, and tag the number each photo is of that category?

Hi Rita, that is something we can do in the future, but we are doing a major upgrade right now and it will have to wait until that is complete. Your best bet for the time being would be to choose the year and category from the leaderboard page and scroll down through all the images.

Scott, I really hope you can come up with a way to show how many photos there are in each category for the year without having to scroll through them all. It takes forever on the larger categories!!!

Jennifer, if you would like to see how many images there are in each category for the year if yearly awards have already been assigned, all you need to do is divide points for #1 place yearly award for that category. As an example: 2018 yearly awards have already been assigned for Food and Drink and #1 yearly award got 20022 points. So if you divide 20022/6= 3337 meaning there are 3337 images in the Food and Drink category at the time yearly awards were assigned.

I hope this helps.

I already counted that one. Haha. The ones I am lacking are the really big categories. See my list above. I was just trying to get the totals for people who might be interested to know in advance if they would be getting an award. (Me included!)

and even missed the biggest I guess :-) 
Flowers: 35,211

Thanks for your efforts

@Scott: showing number of pictures in a category for the day/week/month/year would be a nice additional feature indeed

Tentative as in leaving some flexibility in the schedule, but for the most part it should be accurate.

I know it takes  Pixoto ages to respond and actually get things done - the fact that the dates for 2018 awards are only now being listed - and even then as tentative - does seem to confirm this as we're now almost 1/2 way through 2019.

We had a massive infrastructure change and were not about to release the awards in the middle of it. We are working ambitiously to respond faster and more efficiently as well as improve the overall system. Thank you for your patience.

Have you people not noticed that the annual awards ARE being given? They just gave out PUBLIC HOLIDAYS today. This was the tenth category to be given out. I’m thrilled!

There was an issue with that category that prevented getting it out on time.  I am not exactly sure what the underlying issue was as it will require a deeper investigation.  Nothing serious, but still needs to be addressed.  We now need to get a few releases out before we run any more annual rewards.

Are you any closer to getting the issue resolved? Have a new timeline on the remaining categories? Thanks.

Well, ideally, I would like to get the contest replacement out first and then wait a week for things to stabilize. You are mostly interested in landscapes or animals as well?

I was wondering if you were getting close. You had stated possibly a couple of weeks to get it done.
I would mostly just like to see the annual awards completed for everybody and not left hanging with just these two to go.

Hi Jennifer, we had to get the contest changes out.  I will commit to doing one this week and the last one the following week.

Karen, the annual stickers can't be awarded until they finish awards in all the categories. We are still anxiously awaiting annual awards in animals. I believe all the others may have been awarded. Oh, Scott, I was so hoping that things would be better this year. It's almost August. Could we please focus on winding down 2018 so that we can move on. It is very discouraging that it takes most of the year to see the awards from the previous year.

Hey guys, we ran into a few issues which are now fixed, but want to make sure everything is running smoothly before we send out so many email notifications. We will target next week for the new send date for 1/2 of the remaining categories. We sent out Monthly awards today.

Hi Scott.
Above you stated :
"Hey guys, we ran into a few issues which are now fixed, but want to make sure everything is running smoothly before we send out so many email notifications. We will target next week for the new send date for 1/2 of the remaining categories. We sent out Monthly awards today."

That was 14 days ago: Did I miss an update?
Thx

Two weeks ago we asked; When Will the 2018 Animals and Photogs of the Year Be Awarded, Please?

The original ‘tentative’ for Animals was 6/13/19. Minor delays were then stated, and the last notice I can find is;

“Scott Murphy (Official Rep) 1 month ago
Hi Jennifer, we had to get the contest changes out. I will commit to doing one this week and the last one the following week.”

May your loyal members have a firm date commitment?

What makes Pixoto a prime choice out of the myriad of other photo sites is the major awards for head to head competition. This is the point of continued enthusiasm; the reason we duel and continue paying for Pro.

Could we know if automation for the yearlies is a part of all the many site updates?

Could you assign a person this week to focus on manually calculating these all important yearly awards?

We would all be grateful and satisfied!
Thank you
