New Gamified Panoramio Contest

After hearing all your feedback on the Panoramio Geotagged Photo Contest, we have finally come up with a new version that we hope you will like.

The new version allows non Signed In users to browse in an easy and fast way all the photos submitted to the Contest in the 4 different categories: Scenery, Heritage, Travel and Unusual Location while it allows Signed In users to vote 1 photo of a randomly selected group of 10 photos. After Voting on a photo, a new set of 10 will be displayed and this way you can spend as many time as you want enjoying the cool photos submitted by our Panoramio users.

We wanted to keep the option to discuss with the photographer about a photo you may like. If you want to do so, just click on the large photo of a set and you will be directed to the photo page where you can leave a comment to the photographer.

Many thanks to Bal√°zs for making this possible.

I hope you will like the feature and as always please leave us a comment with your thoughts so we can keep improving Panoramio for you.

P.S.: Before you ask... No, it is not an April’s Fool Joke :)
