Fotoferia is the largest platform for author photography in Poland. Its members are a huge number of photographers both from the country and from all over the world. It has titles that members acquire according to merit and quality of the photography they offer. My membership on the site is from 28.08.2020. From my participation, I understand the tastes and trends in a country where photography is at a high level. Photography schools and schools have great traditions. And today, two years later, I received the highest title/status “ART”. With this title, I also acquired all the positives of the site, which I can use for free. During this time, I have 125 published photographs, 13 of which are in the so-called “High Gallery” in which selected shots from the curators of the platform are published. In 2020, my “Truth of Life” shot became the photo of the day, of the week, of the month. They haven’t announced the photo of the year for 2020 yet, but this shot might have a shot at winning.
These are the levels in the platform:
This status is being given when the sum of recommended analyses and photographs in the Low Gallery reaches 5 or 100 points. The “recommended analysis” means it’s been recommended by 3 Users with the ‘Photographer’ status at least. Adept can rate the photos but can note vote in Inferia.
This status is being given when the sum of recommended analyses and photographs in the Low Gallery reaches 20. The “recommended analysis” means it’s been recommended by 3 Users with the ‘Photographer’ status at least. Amateur can rate the photos and vote in Inferia.

PRO and ART
The ‘PRO’ and ‘ART’ statuses are given by the Portal’s Administration, considering the successes in the club’s contests, club’s activity, documented activity on the Portal, high level of presented photographs and representing the Portal outside of it. The User with ‘PRO’ and ‘ART’ status can use all options available on the Portal without any additional charges, they can run the educating chat in appointed time and they also can be part of jurors in contests organized by the Portal. For status PRO you need at least 2 photos in High Gallery and you have to be an active User.
ART is the best status on the portal.
