This challenge has been a lot of fun but it is time to wrap things up and reward our hard-working Foapers 🙂

Besides voting, we’ve asked you to comment on pictures; what do you like about them and why you think they should win.

So first of all, we’d like to feature some of our favorite comments. You really spoke up!

This picture is absolutely stunning!! You’ve managed to capture the rays of sunlight in this photo in such an incomparable, alluring way. Looking at this photo makes me feel as though I’m looking at a painting and truly brings me peace just looking at it.

This photo is really worth it to win. It is technically perfect. The angle taken, lightning, composition are awesome. This photo represents your country very well through the social life.

This image is very eye catching and has vibrant colors! The repeated pattern and similar subjects make you wonder how far the line of people continues past the edge of the picture. It also makes me curious “What are they doing?”…”What is the pan in their hands?” I love images that make me ask questions.

Amazing night shot. Magical feeling, just like stepping in movie scene. I can almost hear a sound of outgoing subway and lonely footsteps climbing the stairs. Perfect light and mysterious atmosphere. Congratulations on the nomination and good luck.

Having seen this portrait before, it’s clear that it is a high quality, intense, perfectly composed and impactful portrait. For me the paint shading and his expression relates to struggles we all face internally. This photo links beautifully with Serbia.

We’re coming to you with a brand new type of mission: Best Photo – Country Challenge with $2,000 in rewards! Feel your national spirit and compete with your fellow citizens to get individual and national rewards. This challenge will have 3 stages:

Applying ➡️ Voting ➡️ Commenting

Stage 1 – Applying (closed)

We nominated the best photographers from the most active countries on Foap. They were able to join the special national mission and upload their best photo.


Stage 2: Voting (closed)

If you live in one of the most active countries on Foap, in the app you were able to find the mission called “Choose the Best Photo in… [name of your country]”.

You were able to rate photos out of the 5 stars to help choose a photo that will represent your country.

Rate wisely because if a photo from your country wins in the final stage, not only will the author of the photo get $500, but you will also get a $300 mission available just for your country, giving you a much higher chance of winning and earning more money.

We will choose 1 photo from each country’s mission to participate in the finals. We will take rating, the number of rates and overall quality into consideration.

Stage 3: Commenting (closed)

We asked for your best photo and you delivered! We received over 4000 contributions from the 51 countries we invited to the challenge. It has been an incredible experience learning your stories and culture through pictures. The response was overwhelming and we are so grateful to see you as excited about the challenge as we are!

At this stage, you were able to see pictures from all of the countries in one place and comment on them. Authors of the first 100 comments under the winner’s photo will get real cash!
You can comment on any photo, also from another country, but if the best photo will be from your country, you will get a $300 mission available just for your country, giving you a much higher chance of winning and earning more money.
