Grow With Us!

Thanks to all your great photos, there are 224 photos competing for awards and VotoArt credits in this week’s weekly photography contests, and there are already over 100 qualified for next week. Bigger contests bring more site visitors, bigger prize pools and more exposure, particularly for top photos and photographers. In fact, our contest leaderboard and overall top photographer pages are viewed thousands of times each month.

How Can I Gain More Exposure?

  1. Vote – Simple. With bigger contests, we need quality photographers determining the winners, and active voters are rewarded with position points, which are used to rank top photographers.
  2. Enter Cash Contests – Not only can you potentially win $600 with a single photo, but WonUp Cash Contest champions are some of the most prominently featured photos on and off the VotoArt website. We regularly feature WonUp Cash Contest Champions on social networks. WonUp photos that are defeated have a chance to compete in the Weekly Cash Contest, where they can win VotoArt credits. Lastly, work your way up the top photography leaderboard more quickly, because cash contests award more position points.
  3. Become a Pro Photographer – With our annual gold pro plan, you get 10 credits per month for 12 months (that’s 120 total VotoArt credits), so you can consistently compete for more position points in cash contests. Additionally, all your photos automatically qualify for weekly contests, with a perfect score, and qualifying scores are used as tie-breakers in weekly contests. See where you can improve by studying your full win/loss history of each voting criterion against each opposing photo! Lastly, gold pro photographers earn 3x the position points for all activities that award position points!

Your Photography is Better Than You Think

Are You the Next Big Winner?

You might be surprised! Most people are their own worst critic. People rarely see the true quality of their own photography. It’s easy to glance at someone else’s images and see the appeal, but so easy to look critically at our own photography and scrutinize the perceived flaws.

Eric T’Kindt is just one of many photographers who decided to let the VotoArt photography community be the judge. These photographers who chose to compete were rewarded with a total of $295 in WonUp Cash Contest award money last week. Perhaps more importantly, everyone participating received valuable feedback on their strengths, and possible areas where they can improve.

WonUp Cash Contests offer a head-to-head, 1-on-1 challenge against the current champion. The winner gets $5 and stays to compete against the next challenger. So, you only have to beat one photo to start winning money!

If your photo is defeated, don’t despair! The Weekly Cash Contest is your second chance. On Wednesday, we awarded nearly $250 worth of VotoArt credits, and this coming Wednesday, we’ll be awarding nearly $1,000 in VotoArt credits! Our biggest payout yet!
