You don't get points when the award is from a "Challenge" contest. You only get the points in the regular contest.

What is regular contest & "Challenge"? I have not clear idea about this. Please write a few lines more.

Whenever you submit a photo, meaning uploading one, the photo automatically joins the regular contest. You can see your scores change per your wins and losses. The awards you garner here receive points except when the photo is submitted in the Uncategorized Category.

To enter a "Challenge", you needed to click on the "Contest" bar at the top of the Pixoto page. It takes you to the "Pixoto Contest Page" where you can submit any of your photos to a particular Challenge. The awards here don't get any points.

Also, photos that win an award ("Best of....") in the Uncategorized category do not get points.
