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. 

GuruShots' 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 'Mostly White' contest encouraged GuruShots shooters to explore the impact and simplicity of the color white in their photography, from high-key imagery to nature shots.

There were some truly stunning images received from across the world, from the Philippines to Finland, and saw stunning seascapes, magical macros and even a fantastic farmyard! 

The 20 highest ranked images were published in Photography Week, and we send our congratulations to the winners. We're pleased to showcase these images below, with the rest of the top 500 featured photographs in the gallery that follows.
