For Pixoto staff...will you be posting a schedule for releasing "Best of 2012" photo selections, as you did last year, as well as awarding best category togs for the past year?

FYI - We are still struggling to run awards for the largest categories and are substituting smaller ones into the schedule as the need arises. Our goal is to make sure that all categories are run prior to the end of January.

I apologize for the confusion and delay.

Thank you for the update Jason! I'm sure the staff is working hard on the task. It's something to look forward to once you stress less about it. That goes for Pixoto too in general!

So looks like the big 4 categories will be run last: People, Animal, Landscape, and Nature. Buildings will probably run earlier, I think it's smaller than those big 4.
My guess is, City & News will run today!

We've had to change the schedule around due to some challenges with the larger categories. I apologize for the confusion.

Any update on progress here? It would be much appreciated.

Maybe a little information (a list is fine) on which categories have already been awarded and the probably dates for the remaining categories.

28 January and a number of categories such as People, Children, Animals, Nature up Close, Transportation, Landscapes, etc. remain without the annual awards.

Sorry for the delay on this. We are still struggling to be able to assign categories with more than 100,000 images. To date we have assigned:
Abstract
Animals - Cats
Animals - Dogs
Artistic Objects
Babies & Children
Backgrounds
Buildings & Architecture
City, Street and Park
Digital Art
Food & Drink
Holidays
News & Events
Novices Only
Nudes & Boudoir
Products & Objects
Professional People
Sports & Fitness
Transportation
Travel Locations
Wedding

Tomorrow we will assign: Instagram and mobile. The following day we will try Nature up close. The remaining three categories: Landscapes, Animals, and People will be assigned on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of the first week of February. This should give us adequate time put systems in place capable of running awards for those categories.

I'm sorry for the changing schedule.

I checked and did see where I won awards in the Transportation category; however, I never received the corresponding email to that effect.

Jason, you'd stated earlier that the best of 2012 accolades would be assigned this week as the site required an update to display them, is this still on track, and when can we expect this to occur?

We did a release list night that should allow us to run them - but couldn't today because they would colide with weeklies. We'll try again tomorrow.

The Pixoto Team is ominously quiet - no responses to anything for almost a whole day...

Oh dear!

Animals and People it is. And the duplicate awards for Nature up Close have been removed from profile pages - but still remain on the leaderboard pages... :(
