Getting the results

The results of our Greece Photo Contest are announced around Christmas every year. Once participations close in the end of October, we need about two months time to get the results.
A couple of weeks after the contest ends, members are asked to decide which of their pictures they wish to participate. They can select these pictures according to comments and ratings or they can just select their favorite pictures among all photos that they have uploaded in their account from the beginning of 2016.
Then, the team of Greeka.com will choose the top 100 among all the selected pictures of the members. After that, an invitation will be sent to members in order to choose their top pictures among these 100 that were selected by Greeka.
Note: Not all members may participate in the voting process. Only active members can vote. We define the activity of members differently every year. This is to prevent some members from creating multiple accounts in order to vote for their own pictures.

What kind of photos to upload

All kind of photos: from landscapes and portraits to black and white. We will not accept photo compositions (patchwork) made with photo editors. But you can edit your photos as for levels, saturation, HDR, etc

Why are you organizing an annual contest?

Just for fun! We think it is very interesting to share holiday photos.

Contest Rules and conditions


  • After the contest ends, members will be asked to choose which photos they want to participate, among all the photos that they uploaded this year. They can choose these photos with various criteria, for example depending on which photos had most ratings or comments, which are their favorite or which photos may have most possibilities to win. After that, the team of Greeka.com will choose the top 100 among the selected photos of the members. Then, a mail will be sent to members to choose their favorite among the top 100 photos that Greeka selected.
    Not all members may participate in the voting process. Only active members can vote. We define the activity of members differently every year. This is to prevent some members from creating multiple accounts in order to vote for their own pictures.
  • There are no limited or maximum submissions. You can upload as many photos as you wish.
  • Do not watermark or place any other distinguishing mark (i.e. name, copyright) on the photo, unless this mark is really small.
  • Each member can receive a single award.
  • You must be the copyright holder of the photograph in order to take part in the contest.
  • Uploading photos in our website does not mean that you loose the copyright. You are always the copyright holder of the photo. Greeka can use the photos uploaded in the members section for no other reason than promoting this photo contest in newsletters or social media, but still it will be evident that this photo belongs to the member who uploaded it.
  • Last minute rules and restrictions may come up without prior notice if we think it is necessary.
  • Greeka.com takes care of all the details as for making the hotel reservation for the winner and booking the ferry tickets. Once a booking is confirmed, there can be no cancellations or changes.
