Billed as the world's greatest photo game, GuruShots is an online platform that provides a fun, structured way to showcase your images while gaining global exposure for your work. 

By competing in epic challenges against millions of photographers, you can get instant feedback from over three billion monthly votes and increase your ranking from Newbie to achieve the ultimate status (and bragging rights) of Guru. 

Challenges are voted on by the platform's Gurus and the wider community, and there’s a fresh challenge every day. Winners can receive prizes from GuruShots' sponsors such as Adorama, Kodak, Lowepro and Lensbaby. 

The 'Striking Shots' challenge was simple: it tasked photographers to submit the most striking and impressive work they had taken to date! The winners, and a selection of commended images, were published in Digital Photographer (opens in new tab) magazine and we're pleased to share the top 102 photographs here.
