Some moments are just like magic for photographers, and remain recorded on ther memories far beyond their pictures. This was a very special day for me. When the first golden light beams touched the top of the Fitz Roy, Mountain, in Patagônia, there was a huge contrast with the blue, cold-like atmosphere of the whole rest of the scene. It was something surreal and hypnotic for the lucky viewers.
A tradition in the Belo Horizonte carnival are the trucks pumping water over the heated headed crowds in the streets. The tradition came from a political stance over a dispute with the local government for the liberation of public squares to held festivals and other public cultural events. At Central Station Square, there are fountains that were shut when the masses came to protest over the prohibition with a beach party at the square in a town where there's no beaches. So they hired one of these trucks to have some water over their heads and enjoy themselves, showing the government who ruled over who.
- Рейтинг фотографов по странам и городам строится на основе 2 лучших фотографий автора и их относительной позиции в каждой отдельной номинации. Рейтинг в номинации "Мобильная фотография" учитывается в меньшей степени для формирования рейтинга. В списке показывается одна фотография автора с лучшим рейтингом.
- В рейтинге по номинациям учитывается одна лучшая работа автора набравшая максимальный бал.
- В списке опубликованы только работы которые прошли 2-й этап голосования.
- The rating of photographers by countries and cities is based on the two best photos of the author and their relative position in each separate nomination.

- The rating for the nominations takes into account one of the best photographs of the author who scored the maximum score.
- Only those photos have been published in the list that passed the second stage of voting.
More recently, we have made an improvement and now we have a new feature - "Series uploading." Even now, you can download from 3 to 10 photos in the series, united by a common idea. Voting for the series will take place separately from other series in their nominations. vote principle remains the same as for single photos. At the moment, series uploading is available for nominations: "Children's Photography", "Wild Animals", "Staged Photography" and "Reportage photo". This feature is available for any improved account.
