Lets Define it!
With this term we refer to a website specially designed and programmed (web developed) to successfully start and run a photo competition where people can add their photos. At the end of the competition the website gives the photo competition winners list to the administrators.
Why is so important now and not some years ago?
The last few years due to the fact that is more easy for all people to shoot a nice photo on their photo camera or mobile phone (since megapixels have been increased on small personal photo machines) and also because digital photography has entered our lifes, enabling nearly anyone to have his photos on his computer / internet / facebook minutes after the shooting, an online digital photo competition for the general public is a good way to establish your brand in the market.
How we differ from other companies?
The answer is simple. We know what needs to be done, we were the 1st who did it from Cyprus on an International huge scale with great success. Not one time but fours times until now, with the approval of all the recognized International Photography Organizations.
Our company is the 1st company in Cyprus that has designed, developed and used successfully a photo competition web based software in 4 International Photo Competitions until now, under the auspices / patronage of FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique), RPS (Royal Photographic Society), PSA (Photographic Society of America), UPI (United Photographers International) and ISF (Image Sans Frontieres). These competitions were organized by the Cyprus Photographic Society under the support of the Cyprus Tourism Organization and The Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture.
