Hello Jennifer, we do pay out cash award for #1 week photo in a category where there were at least 1000 images submitted in that week.

Is there a way to check on a particular week in November, 2018? Or will I have to sift through all the all-times to count all the Photos from that week?
Or is this all done automatically? If I win #1 in a particular week where there were 1,000 entries in my category, will you just automatically send me a check? Or is there some form I would need to fill out?

Jennifer, you can hover your mouse over #1 weekly award, if it got at least 6000 points, it is eligible for cash award. To get exact number of images, you just divide number of points with 6.
If you are asking about this image: https://www.pixoto.com/images-photogr...
I can see that it got 1830 points, and by dividing it with 6 - 1830/6=305 so there were only 305 images submitted that week and award is not eligible for cash prize.
When award does get at least 6000 points, you will need to claim your cash prize as explained in our rules page: https://www.pixoto.com/photography-co...

"Cash prizes must be claimed within 90 days by completing this form (with link to the form)."

If you go to the Leaderboard and click on "last week" for the category that you are interested, you can change the week on the address bar (at the top of your screen) to match the week you are interested in. I don't know if it will work on the phone app, but that is how it works on a PC. This is the link for "Animals" in the first week of November:  https://www.pixoto.com/images-photography/animals/all/leading/in-week-44-2018 Change the categhory and the week number to suit your needs. Once you get the category and week, scroll to the bottom of the page and it will show you how many entries there are for that week. That week, my image was #1 for animals, but there were only 590 entries... so no money. To be honest, there are rarely 1,000 entries in any of the categories anymore. So, while money may still be on the table, in reality, it is not.
