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.
From long-exposure landscapes to delicate droplets, raging rivers, and photogenic puddles, with the Water World Challenge, we wanted you to get creative and aim for quality! Water has no single shape, speed, or look, which meant that you needed to be as fluid as your liquid subject to get "the shot."
The winning images didn't disappoint, and we enjoyed seeing everything from crashing waves to serene falls. We recommend scrolling through all of the images to see how all the top photographers interpreted the brief.
The 20 highest-ranked images will be published in Photography Week Magazine, and we're pleased to showcase these images below, along with the rest of the top featured photographs in the gallery that follows.
