Considered the best photo game in the world, GuruShots is an online platform that offers a fun and structured way to showcase your images while gaining global exposure for your work.

By taking part in epic challenges against millions of photographers, you can gain instant commentary of over three billion monthly votes and increase your Beginner Rankings to achieve ultimate Guru status (and bragging rights).

GuruShots challenges are voted on by platform gurus and the community at large, and there is a new challenge every day. Winners can receive prizes from GuruShots sponsors such as Adorama, Kodak, Lowepro and Lensbaby.

The “Your Magazine Photo” contest is all about choosing your most post-worthy photo, and there were some amazing entries that could grace the pages of the posts.

Perhaps our favorite shot, and a fantastic editorial image, is Louis Nauche’s silhouetted photograph of a cyclist doing laps on a bicycle (03). We are also very impressed with the stunning black and white rainy street photo of Sergey Demchenko (23) and Iza ŁysoÅ„’s image of a collie jumping in a lavender field (22) is simply magical!

We also loved the haunting image of driftwood on a beach by Lars Lofman (02), and there were wonderful long exposures from Erik Enrico Ersson (01), Zdeněk Janovský (08) and Julien Serarre (21).

The top 20 images were published in Digital Photographer magazine, and we are happy to feature these images below, along with the rest of the top 500 photographs featured in the gallery that follows.
