GuruShots is an online platform that gives photographers the opportunity to showcase their work to a global audience in a uniquely fun way. Known as the 'world's greatest photo game', you can compete in regular challenges against millions of other photographers to see how your work compares.
With instant feedback from over three billion monthly votes, photographers can work their way up from being a Newbie to the impressive ranking of Guru. This means that every shot truly counts!
The GuruShots (opens in new tab) challenges are voted on by the platform's Gurus and the wider community. With a fresh challenge everyday, there's plenty of opportunity to win prizes from GuruShots' sponsors, including Adorama, Kodak, Lowepro and Lensbaby.
The 'At the Beach' contest challenged GuruShots' users to grab their camera, head out to the shoreline and encapsulate everything that they love (or hate!) about being at the beach with a single photo.
The results were truly impressive, drawing in some incredible images from across the world. From Israel to India, this latest GuruShots contest featured sun-soaked vistas, striking portraits, aerial vistas and more.
The 20 highest ranking photographs were published in Digital Photographer (opens in new tab), and we send our congratulations to the winners. We're pleased to showcase the top 20 shots below, with the rest of the top 500 featured photographs in the gallery that follows.
