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.
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.
The 'Dominant Black' was all about the impact of black – a powerful color that attracts the eyes and can play an important role in creating drama and impact. The winners, and the top 20 ranked images, were published in Photography Week (opens in new tab), and we're pleased to share all 500 top-ranked photos here.(opens in new tab) (opens in new tab) (opens in new tab)
