5. How many contests are there?
The numbers of contests vary from month to month. Contests are refreshed monthly. The categories are designed to appeal to a variety of interests and lifestyles. For example contest categories range from, "Hot Guys", "Hot Girls", "Cute Babies", "Cool Cars" to "Weird Pix". There also will be special "challenge contests" such as "Best Halloween Costume" that happen during certain times of the year.
6. Are there any limitations as to what types of photos I can submit?
No inappropriate content will be accepted as submissions to any contests. Trademarks, celebrities, content rights protected imagery and images taken without the explicit consent of the subject(s) will not be allowed. We also will not accept pictures with otherwise offensive content. Photos with offensive text or personal information will also be rejected.
There are some basic requirements in order for us to accept user submitted photos. Please make sure that submitted photos have proper lighting so that the images can be easily viewed. Photos which are improperly submitted to incorrect categories will be rejected.
7. How are contest winners chosen?
Pictures are voted on by users in each contest category. Users can rate a photo as many times as they like, but only the last rating of that particular photo will be recorded. APIX portal and mobile application tracks the votes and provides real-time rating information to determine who has the highest rating at that given point and time. At the end of the contest category period, the photos with the highest average ratings are evaluated by a panel of judges, who look at each picture's overall quality and creativity. Then a final winner for the contest is chosen by the panel, and any prizes are awarded. Please continue to check back often and see how your pictures are doing!
