Getting the results

The results of our Greece Photo Contest are announced around Christmas every year. Once participation close to 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 2019.
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.
