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 Perfectly Photogenic Challenge, we asked you to explore the realm of visual appeal for a chance to have your shots published in a world-class magazine! Everyone and everything has the ability to be photogenic; to enhance the ‘attractiveness’ of your subject matter, you needed to pay close attention to angles, lighting, and most importantly – to keep things natural.
The winning images didn't disappoint, and we enjoyed seeing the incredibly diverse portraits of all ages. We recommend scrolling through the images to see how all the top photographers interpreted the brief.
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.
