I have reported images in the Holidays category over and over again, and the images remain. One even slipped over the 6 month point in the last few weeks. I'm starting to think I've been blocked from reporting or something! (totally kidding about that...I hope...but I have reported some over and over and over again...)

Take this image for example...

And as we are approaching the end of the year, this really should be fixed, as it's unfair for those who actually follow the rules when competing in the category.

And on another note, I have said it before, but I'll say it again...the 6 month rule for re-categorization is completely unfair and unreasonable, considering you give out year awards. So you won't move an image from a category because it's 6 months old, but you're perfectly ok with punishing the people who have abides by the rules and may have had a higher placement if those images were properly moved?

If it sounds like I'm ranting, it's because I am. Outside of being a fun photo contest, Pixoto is also selling stock images and art prints, as well as allowing photographers to be contacted for work. Photos that win awards in the wrong category are allowed a higher listing in the stock and art photo listings, as well as a higher listing in the photographer's "top players" listings.

I sympathise, but I don't think the image categories and definitions help sometimes.

In many places a holiday actually means vacation and as this is a global site, English may not always be a first language. If i were to look up 'holiday' in my dictionary i would come up with this:


1 (often holidays) an extended period of leisure and recreation, especially one spent away from home or in travelling which fits the image you refer to

Also, the image you referred to was an award winner. I don't know why Pixoto do not vet all daily awards if this is such an issue and ignore the remainder (as everyone aspires to win awards) - all subsequent awards are then properly categorised by default

Oh, and give better image category definitions and headings with more prominence (a drop down description when you select a category for submission would be a timely reminder for folks)

Hello Lisa, I'm sorry you are frustrated. I did ask report team to go through Holiday category, and I will ask again.
