Selection Process

In the end we will count the votes on each image and announce the top 10 most popular works and artists. That is why we ask not to bring your photos from current albums because they may have already been "Liked". Images that don't respect the above rules will not be counted.


Not uploaded from harddisk


A few participants uploaded photos from other currently existing albums. Though we don't remove images, these works will not be counted in the contest.


Since this event solely relies on the number of "likes" on the images, we cannot recognize if an image has been "liked" before therefore we cannot accept images which are shared from a currently existing album.


This is how to check if your image has this problem:
  1. If under your image it says that it is "Also uploaded to" another event or it says the name of an album, it means that this image is carrying "likes" from another occasion so we cannot accept it in this competition.
  2. If the upload date of an image is earlier than when the contest started (3rd August 2010), it means that the image is not uploaded directly from hard disk for this competition.


1. Remove your image from the event album (click Remove This Photo from the right bottom of the image).
2. Upload the photos directly from your hard disk (see How to put your photo above)

More than 3 images

A few people have uploaded more than 3 images. Though we don't remove images, higher number of works can mean the artist cannot make up their mind for their best work. Chances are high that your votes will spread around several images. And also the event album will be too big for typical visitors to see, so some other artists will be lost in the middle of a pile of photos and that is not fair.
  1. Missing to read the rules or maybe forgetting them! ;)
  2. Some people encounter problems when uploading images to facebook and they may try to upload images several times. It cause the images to appear several times under their name.
There are more than 3 images posted from a specific person
Remove the extra images. If they are duplicated, it means your votes are spread between the images. Please locate and remove the duplicated images.

Non-minimalism works

The photo cannot be considered minimalistic in any sense. Though we don't remove images, these works will not be counted in the contest.
The artists may have their own interpretation of minimalism which might be different from others.
As a rule of thumb a picture with the following properties has a high chance of not being minimalist:
  • high number of objects (1 or 2 is minimal)
  • high details (not being low resolution or blurry, many minimalistic images are pretty simple)
  • takes long to explore and watch (minimal images are easy to watch)
It is not really easy to say what is not minimalism, but see the definition to have an idea.
Take a look at this page: It introduces minimalism along with lots of examples.


The aim of this event is to introduce the most popular works and their respective artists. The result will be announced after the selection round is over. The winning images and the names will appear on this page and will be announced in a message to participants.

The most popular works (those which gained most "likes" will be announced here together with the name of their artist.
Why no money?
This event is more of a recognition and popularity. We are a loosely group of enthusiasts around the world and there is no central account for paying prizes. This website, group and all the people behind it don't get paid for this job so there is no mundane way to prize the winners.
However, many people participate just for the joy of sharing their perspective to others and find friends who are interested in their style.
