I won a weekly first place but have not received a cash award. How can I tell how many submissions there were in a week to know if the monetary award should be given?

Norma, you can go to the leaderboard for your category and pull up the entries from last week. Scroll through and you will know how many entries there were. If there were enough entries, you have to fill out a form to claim your prize. You can find a link to the form on this page: http://www.pixoto.com/photography-com.... The link is toward the bottom of the section labeled "Weekly Contest Rules". Good luck.

So I have to scroll through 1000 entries? Pixoto doesn't keep track? It is up to the photographer to put in a claim for their prize? The picture in question was back in November before I even knew there were cash prizes. What then?

Hi Norma, just check the points you got when your picture won divide by 6 and that's the number of entries there was. So to qualify you need at least 6000 points for the picture and in first place for the week. I hope this helps. Dave

6,000 points?
I do not understand.
Do you not mean 600 points?
Looking at last weeks leader board for flowers the top image has 715 points and I think there were over 1000 images submitted to that category that week.
Clarification please.

Hello Michael, #1 award in the week will get points in the value of the 6x number of images in category points. So for award to be eligible for cash prize there needs to be at least 1000 images in that category - meaning 1000x6 = 6000 points.

Weekly awards for last week images haven't yet been assigned. What you are seeing is imagescore of top image (715) and it has nothing to do with points assigned to awards. The more images submitted to a category, the higher points are assigned to awards (regardless of imagescore).

I hope this helps.

Thank you for the explanation Jasenka.
Where can one check the number of points allocated?
Kind regards.

Jasenka, I think I have realised where these points are.
They are the number of points allocated to each image when you receive notification of daily, weekly, monthly awards.

Am I correct?

Michael, you can see points allocated to each award if you check imagedetail page and hover the mouse over each award.

Also, as you stated points are specified in the notification sent with awards.

I hope this helps.

Michael. I have also posed a question which I need clarification. Rules state no similar images. Jasenka is now telling me similar means exact? So if an image is not exactly the same it will be allowed. I don't know what your definition is similar , but in my learning similar does NOT mean exact. I am seeing tons of images here being used over and over again where the photographer is only changing the crop a bit or changing the colors, which we all know is beyond easy and they are using these image over and over again. In my book, that means they should be removed. If the rule is the image needs to be exactly the same, the rules should be changed to reflect the change. What say all of you?

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main one, so I created a new conversation to continue the discussion.
