Voting and Awards

  • Updated 5 years ago
If you are voting for the best image of a day, week or month then fair play would suggest that your images are matched against other images from the same period to be able judge which is the best but they are not, images that are being voted on for the best of last week are being matched against images from month's ago that have already won awards for that period, how is that fair play or a fair voting system? it's pathetic.

Hello Graham, images are competing to be on leaderboard for category of all images, not just ones that are submitted that day.

I hope this helps.

No it doesn't Jasenka, how can an image be the best of the day if it's not competing against images that have been submitted that day but from month's ago it beggars belief and is not my idea of fair play.

I think that is a great point. Your right Graham. It only seems fair that you should be dueling against other images submitted that day. That way everyone is dueling the same photos not someones photos from two years ago.

Graham,Pixoto is not perfect, I often point things out to them, but if you are so unhappy with how they run things I confess to being puzzled as to why you continue to post here.

I like the site, but the way it's run is a joke. It claims to have things that it hasn't. I know nothing is perfect but claiming one thing and doing something totally different is unfair.

If your going to have awards for the best of day, week etc then it should be that period only not images that have already been voted on and won awards, it makes a mockery of what it's supposed to be doing.

There is some logic there after all if i was going to enter a competition i would not expect to be competing against last years winning entry ? only the new ones this time round !

Gee Ralph when I enter a photography I don't expect to be competeing against a painting but that particular inequity doesn't seem to bother you " painters " at all. I wonder why that is?

Perhaps if you actually enter you should read the rules first where it clearly states it is acceptable in all categories !

Again Painter Ralph you tell only HALF the story. A Not surprisingly considering that you're a painter you tell the half most favorable to your position.

Dear Graham White :

Shouldn't everybody's images be judged against competition only from the same category? Why should a " painter with a camera " win any award for any image that was posted in any category other than Digital Art?

I admire your tenacity Paul, and I am sure you are a fantastic photographer but it's obvious Pixoto is not the right fit for you. I mean that in the most polite way. I don't mean to offend you.

Sonya Hutchison :

Put you mind at ease Ma'am I know exactly the extent of my talent or lack thereof depending on your viewpoint so you couldn't possibly offend me in that regard or any other most probably. You don't seriously think I post my work ONLY at Pixoto do you? As for leaving Pixoto I don't think that will be happening and as long as I'm here and pay the same good American Greenbacks as the " painters with a camera " do I'll advocate tirelessly that everybody be judged fairly. You'll probably not believe this Ma;am but it's about me in only the most minor way it's about having a fair system for everybody. Take that as you wish.

Sonya Hutchison :

Actually Ma'am I don't hate Pixoto I enjoy it for the most part. They have an excellent idea that just needs to be tweeked a bit. I'm simply trying to get them to see that it's in their own best interests to give the " painters with a camera " their own category / genre. It also just happens to be in the " painters with a camera;s " best interest but they are way too blind to see it. Please explain to me how it's a bad thing to have your " art " judged against your peers in the same genre. I think that would give the " painters with a camera " a much better idea of exactly how good they are. Wouldn't that also help with marketing ?

To judge Kanye West's music against Dinna Krall's as jazz is patently unfair to both artists. The reverse is also true.

Paul is your ego so big that you actually think Pixoto will change the rules for everyone else to suit just the one of you ?

What a Prat !

Actually Painter Ralph I think Pixoto will do it ultimately because it's the right and fair thing to do and because it's good for business.
