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 Fragrant Flowers Challenge, we wanted to see your very best flower photos, full of color, texture, patterns, and personality. We enjoyed seeing all of your creative entries, from close-up captures to beautiful backlit portraits.

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