This week one of the worlds bet known and exclusive online art galleries 1X published two of my photos. “A New Life” from my traveling in the Rodopa mountains and “Inhabitants of The North” from my trip to Norway. The two pictures was also selected in the “Popular” section. All photos on 1X are selected by a team of professional gallery curators, editors and photographers. Some of the curators have experience from institutions such as Sotheby’s and Tate Modern Art. Thousands of photos are examined and evaluated every day. Only photos of the highest quality are published. The first stage consists of votes by users of the site. The images that have 60 or more votes go on to the second stage where they are examined by the curators.The evaluations are based on a number of different criteria. Upholding these standards is not enough however. The photo must also bring something new to the gallery.
Here’s what site owners say – “All photos on 1x are selected by a team of professional gallery curators. Just like in a real photo gallery. Our curators have experience from well-known institutions such as Sotheby’s and Tate Modern Art. Yes, standards are high, but don’t let that discourage you. We believe that everyone has an inner photographer, just waiting to be discovered.
For a non professional photographer it is a privilage to take part on a platform where 5% of all submitted photos are published!
