1x Member Awards

Dear 1x members,

As most of you know, we recently switched to a new award system (you can read more about it here). One of the new features of the new system is that the old levels have been replaced by stars in various colors. By gathering Award points, you will unlock stars on your score page.

Another piece of news was that we increased the number of points for photo comments to no less than 5 points per comment, so make sure to comment photos.

Besides the ordinary stars, there are also three special stars; bronze, silver and gold. 

These stars are awarded by the crew two times each year, during midsummer and midwinter (the two longest and shortest nights in Sweden) to members who have excelled both in their photographic work, but also in their contributions to the 1x community. This is our way to give you a special thank you!

It's now time for the first edition of the 1x Member Awards and the first special stars will be awarded. And the winners are...

Thanks so much!!!! We are very honoured!!!! all the best!!!

during Midsummer and Midwinter (the two longest nights in Sweden) ?? One is the shortest and the other the longest! With that said, Congrat's to the award-winners! must, by far, be the site with the greatest photos and the greatest photographers!
Thanks for your attention to Swedish seasonal shifts ;-) It's now corrected. And thanks for your nice words regarding 1x and all its wonderful photographers.
Congrats to all, especially to the extremely talented Thomas. I was really surprised !
Thanks Hans Martin!
Wow, Thomas! In addition to the awards themselves, you have an impressive new career underway (It was fun to watch). Congratulations to all the winners. I enjoyed seeing the list; what a great way to learn about new work. Look forward to seeing what the team comes up with for silver and gold. How about a name (Oscars, Emmys, Ralfies...)
Great ! Looking forward to be awarded with a Ralfie.
We will definitely consider giving out Ralfies.

crew is honoring crew?
Hi Leon, joining the crew is an excellent way to contribute to this community. The people in the crew spend hours and hours making this site function without getting paid so this is a great way to recognize their work.
How does one join the crew? Is there an application process or do you have to be invited?
Thomas - you are a natural stage presenter. Thanks guys!
Thank you Andre!
Nicely done Thomas. You did a great job with the video!
