Hi Im new to pixoto so just a question about awards. Are weekly awards given for the top 10% and 20% photos in a category each week? I had some photos that seemed to fall into that bucket last week (bit hard to tell as Im not sure where you can see the number of photos submitted) but didnt attract an award per the notifications today.

Josh - awards are given to the top 20% of images in each category each week BUT awards for last week are assigned on Wednesday night of this week. So you still have a shot...

I am a little confused? I thought the week ran from Sunday to the following Saturday. Jason's statement above makes it sound like the week actually runs from Sunday through the following Wednesday? So does that mean we compete for weekly awards for 11 days not 7 days? Thanks

It still collects votes after Saturday for folk who post a shot say on the Saturday.

Yes, I know they continue to compete forever but I thought that was for monthly and annual awards. Is there a clear cutoff for the competition within certain periods? If it is a weekly award, seems like it should be within a certain week. The little badge you get refers the week of and the beginning date of the week, but what is the ending date of that week, that is what I am wondering :))

Ending of the week is Saturday. But Pat is right - we allow more votes to accumulate until Wednesday before we assign awards.

I think I get it :) So the week of the contest is entering anytime during the week in question. If you enter it on the first day Sunday, you will be receiving votes that count toward the weekly award for basically 11 days. However if you enter it on the last day of the week, Saturday, you will continue getting votes that count toward the week for 4 days. This actually makes sense to me (scary) because you don't want members to stop posting because the end of the week is approaching, it will hamper the duels. I can see that there is really no advantage or disadvantage to when you post an image. If it is going to do well, it will do so certainly within a day or two. Extra days or fewer days won't make a difference. Thanks for the clarification Jason.

You only get money if your photo won 1st place award for a week, in category (not for Instagram & mobile, and novices category) that has more then 1000 photos in the week award is issued.
