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 Street Photography Challenge, we wanted you to hit the streets and push your creative eye. Street photography is about capturing candid moments and spontaneous snippets of everyday life. You submitted some truly captivating photos, whether it was documenting a place, a city, or expressing your own point of view.

As always, the winning images didn't disappoint, displaying all the life and color of life on the street. We recommend scrolling through all of the images to see how all top photographers interpreted this brief.

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