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. 

With the latest Amazing Architecture Challenge, we wanted to see your best shots of buildings modern and ancient. From the pyramids of Egypt to a modern skyscraper, architecture has been one of the most dynamic art forms throughout history and a favorite subject matter amongst photographers. You certainly showed us your talent and captured some stunning architectural shots.

The 20 highest-ranked images will be published in Digital Photographer magazine and we're pleased to showcase these images below, along with the rest of the top-featured photographs in the gallery that follows.
