Some of our members winning contributions.

Shoot and Have Fun!

FlickrAwards provides an addictive and entertaining place for all levels of photography to share their work and have fun at the same time.

Improve your Photography

After a short time of joining you will be inspired to target and focus your creative skills and shoot pictures in a different way.

Here to Help

Members love to get involved and with a dedicated and friendly community you are in a great place to support your photography skills.

How does FlickrAwards work?

All you need is a Yahoo Flickr™ account which contains your photographs.

Add your photos to contests

There are over 60 topical categories such as Black & White, Wildlife, Landscape and many many more to enter your photographs in to. New members with under 10 wins get to play on an even playing field with other new members before being promoted to the wider community contests.

Once your hooked to FlickrAwards you will be thinking about which categories you can enter when you are shooting your photographs. We get great feedback from the community on how FlickrAwards makes them think before they shoot.

Members vote on the entries

Points are awarded for coming 1st or 2nd place including additional points for the total number of votes your photograph receives. Winning 1st automatically qualifies your photograph to enter a Showdown contest where all previous 1st place photographs battle for bonus points.

Why not take the reverse roll and vote on contests which you have not entered. Improve your photography by challenging yourself to choose your favourites which match the contest entry requirements from the 6 photographs.

The Awards League

Entering and voting on contests gains you points which places you in to the monthly Awards League leaderboard. Did you know that you can also add members to your own mini Awards League? This is great for friends, families and photography clubs who wish to play together.

Your personal score card shows you everything you need to know on how well you are performing for that month. The 6 winners of the month enter the FlickrAwards hall of fame.

Featured Contests

Featured contests run each month which are specific to a topic such as showcasing your best work in 'Masterpiece' or more specifically 'People at Work'. These change on a regular basis with different entry requirements.

Coming soon members will be able to create their very own contests for other members to enter in to.

Not Just a Contest Site

FlickrAwards is a growing social community of recreational, amateur and semi-professional photographers who love photography and enjoy sharing their work. All members are encourage to engage and learn where possible.

New features and upgrades are continually added and the best part is that is works great on mobiles and tablets too.

Shooting to a theme rather than random shots keeps me on my toes.
