What are VotoArt Photography Contests?

At VotoArt, it doesn't matter if you're a professional photographer, or someone who loves taking photos with their iPhone. We have free contests for photographers who just enjoy sharing their photos and getting valuable feedback from the community, and we have cash contests for shutterbugs and pros looking to make some money with their photography.

There are also 2 ways for your photography to compete. WonUp contests put your photo head-to-head with the current champion, scheduled contests give your photo a chance to compete against other recent category-specific submissions. WonUp entries automatically go into scheduled contest qualifying when they are defeated.

You photographer peers are the contest judges, they will vote in 1-on-1 square offs determining which photo is better in:

  • GENERAL IMPRESSION
  • COLOR & LIGHTING
  • COMPOSITION & FOCUS
