The Top50 is chosen by Agora’s Audiovisual Team, which applies a series of criteria to make sure the photos that better represent the concept of the Contest are selected.
The criteria applied to choose the Top50 are the quality of the photo, that both the photo and its content respect and represent the Contest guidelines, and Agora's Audiovisual Team opinion.
Stars are now only used for gaining visibility and increasing your chances of making the Top 50
The Hero is chosen by the community! Agora believes in democracy and we want the community to decide with its Votes which photo represents the Contest theme better.
