Why We Have the Photo Competition.

The Photo Contest is a way to bring the community together and share what they love. We allow photographers and non photographers who have keen interest in pictures, from all over the world to share their work, and inspire others. By sharing our best shots, we can congratulate those who are doing an amazing job and encourage others to continue.

Because It’s all about Tourism, Culture and Photography.

The Romarox Tourism Photo Competition is unique because it’s all about the tourism and photos. It’s not about one photographers’ popularity vs. another’s or the ability to rally social media for votes. It’s not about your financial ability to pay for more entries to flood the photo pool.

Completely Fair and Fraud-proof

The Photo Competition entry is charged at fee. You can enter up to 21 photos into 7 different categories. The voting on each photo is judged on its own merit after it has met the submisstion rules and also by the public votes. Every photo is given equal opportunity to be voted on. It is displayed the same number of times to the voters as any other, so every photo is in the running.

You are the Judge

And the best part… You choose the winners. You are the judge. Everyone gets to vote. When the contest starts, we show you a group of photos and you choose your favorite of the bunch. We’ll keep displaying random groups of photos from the same category for as long as you want. You vote only once on each photo.
