How Challenges & Voting Work

Every day, we post at least one new challenge. These challenges are designed to determine the best photographs of a certain category or topic. Sometimes challenges are sponsored by companies who are seeking specific, authentic photos to fill an image need. However, challenge topics are always based on what customers want and need. The Creative Brief is written to help clarify what customers need; therefore, photos that follow the Brief are more likely to win and to be purchased. Photos flagged as "Off Topic," "Inappropriate" or "Stolen" can be removed from the challenge after reviewed.

How Challenges Work:

Open - For each challenge, a photographer will be permitted to enter one photo during the 'Open' period. A photographer can also change, edit, or remove their entry during this time.

Voting - Once voting begins, the challenge is closed for entry. Anyone in the Twenty20 Community can flag and/or vote on the entries. When voting, entries are shown one by one in an order that gives each photo the same number of chances to be voted on. Voting typically lasts 48 hours.

Closed - When the challenge ends, honors are given to photos in the Top 20, Top 10%, and the Top 20%. All photos in the Top 20% are added directly to Twenty20 collections, which are featured to customers. The Twenty20 Editorial Team then selects the overall winner based on quality and relevance to the Creative Brief. This winner, called the Editor's Pick, gets featured in the app's Highlights Feed and receives 100% of the listed prize. (Please note: The Editor's Pick is not picked based on the photo's rank in the challenge.)

 

How to Enter Challenges:

To enter a challenge in the app: 

  • Tap on the trophy icon in the bottom navigation bar
  • Under the OPEN tab, select the Challenge you want to enter
  • After carefully reading the Creative Brief and Photo Requirements, click on the "OK, GOT IT" button
  • Click the 'SUBMIT PHOTO' button to add your entry
  • Select a photo from your Twenty20 Gallery or any other photo album on your phone

 

When voting opens, you can check back to see your personalized, real-time stats!

  • The number of votes your entry has received is shown to the left of the progress bar (Votes and likes are different)
  • The progress bar shows your rank in the challenge. Your rank is based on the number of total votes you receive for your entry. The more votes, the higher your rank.
  • Note: An entry's rank can take longer to calculate and show in your stats than the total votes.
