onemillionphotographers is a global online gallery project, platform and competition. Just like a real gallery, every submitted image is assigned its own permanent Gallery space, so your submitted work is always on display, and not hidden away in a judge’s shortlist. Each uploaded image occupies its own piece of online photography real estate. The Gallery is open to everyone, whether professional, amateur, student, enthusiast or hobbyist.
Each image has its own Gallery page identifiable by unique searchable location coordinates and available for others to view, “like”, rate or download. Ratings, “likes” and downloads score points in the onemillionphotographers competition, and photographers earn revenues from downloads of their work.
CATEGORIES: Submissions are invited any of the eight image categories: Landscape, People, Nature & Wildlife, Abstract, Travel, Architecture, After Dark and Reportage.
