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 'Dream Destinations' challenge tasked members with heading back to the days of adventure and exploration, from planned vacations to impromptu trips across the world. The winners, and a selection of commended images, were published in Digital Photographer (opens in new tab), and we're pleased to share all 424 photos here.
