  • This means that, if everything went smoothly, we should have the awards of January 23rd, and this for 55 minutes.... Can somebody tell me why they’re not being distributed...?
    I have nothing against experiments to try to improve the system, although it would have to work properly.

  • Looking at the top ten daily awards for Animals on January 23rd, only one has shifted positions. I'd say the delay in assigning daily awards seems to be working much better.

  • Annual Awards: Schedule Announced Middle of March.
    There is already a link published for it somewhere? I am a bit confused with the schedules and links available...(I meant, for the annual awards of 2019, obviously to be published/announced during 2020)

    Also, talking about contests and etc.: users are still waiting replies for WEEKS about what happened to this contest> https://www.pixoto.com/contests/portraits-in-the-studio#COMMENTS

    Photos were disqualified with a terribly bad excuse, the winner has three similar entries (guidelines on submissions are clear to DON ́T use photos that are similar - Contest Rules: 
    • 1. No Watermarks
    •  
    • 2. No Very Similar Images
    ) and they were not disqualified (well, one received Judge Award).

      Gabriel - "Picture number 1, number 4 and number 12: exactly the same model, same place, same composition, extremely similar BG." - as much as I can see they are same models but pose/scene is not the same (not to mention that even clothes are different). Regarding #4 and #12 (actually #16) again please check our rules for very similar images - https://www.pixoto.com/photography-co... specifically this part: "...The only exceptions are that you may have a duplicate of a color photo in the black and white category ..." so they don't violate our rules.

      Regarding disqualifications - I don't do disqualification - I will ask person that handle contests to recheck questions in comment section for that contest.

      I would also like you to stick to the topic - which is in this case Awards. Any different issues should be in its own topic. Thank you for understanding.
    • Jasenka: thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, as you see AGAIN, I ́m not the only one complaining about this topic [even not being the Awards topic]. 

      I am sorry that apparently you were the only one trying to give consistent replies so you had to read and lose your time doing it on a topic about Annual awards and not about that contest in particular. Let ́s agree that if it was solved and clearly replied as it was supposed to be on that contest, things would be different.

      But well, again, as you as a Pixoto official rep insists it ́s not a similar picture, even with other members pointing that any serious platform would review it [the B/W rule is pretty clear, but honestly? Use the "Cloth" argument on a studio portrait that is not even focused on putting the clothes/fashion as main focus? Vague/furtive excuse, no?]

      "Sometimes", users in general happens to have a good argument or even the reason. Paul Drajem, Pat Regan, Kelley Hurwitz Ahr and who knows I am not on this list too? :) "Sometimes".

      Thanks for your reply, unfortunately and clearly it wasn ́t sufficient as it insists on pointing exactly on what all the users are asking for clarification and reviews. I will use the Exit Door again and stop wasting your time and Pixoto team again. Apparently Pixoto is always right, while other users with 1, 10 or maybe 40 years on the industry don ́t know anything. Feel I ́m clearly not welcome as I pointed things keeps on running on a direction they shouldn ́t be and other users are on the same tune as I am, while the website itself insists to be reluctant no matter what we say :)

      Sadly gone again, see you around somewhere. o/ Maybe I try it again after another year or two..
