New Feature : The Photographer Certificates

Announcement  by the 1x management
Edited and published by Yvette Depaepe, the 9th of February


This week we are launching a new 1x feature : The Photographer Certificates.

A message including a 'Photographer Certificate', has  already been sent out to every photographer that has had at least one photo awarded.
It represents a personal 'diploma' style certificate, and  looks like this :



It can be used to show friends and followers your wonderfully great achievement and could also be attached to your CV for business promotion purposes.


Where can you find it ?
Go to your settings and click on 'Certificates'



The certificate is generated for printing in 300dpi resolution.
It also contains a QR code that can be used to validate its authenticity.

The date on your certificate is the date you had your first photo awarded.
Photos that were previously 'published' before the new version of 1x was released are equal to awarded and counts as that.

On the same page, you also will see your publish/award image certificates. 
Please note that not all photos historically has publish/award certificates.



Keep an eye on your e-mail and in the Certificates pages because in the near future
we will add more photographer certificates for different achievements on 1x.



I have sent two emails to the mailbox of 1X, but I haven't received any reply. I don't know why I don't have this certificate. I can be awarded according to the rules.

Thanks for your appreciation, Linili!
I understand that you're releasing this certificate to whoever got just 1 award or 100 with no distinction. Looks pretty unfair to my eyes, because a regular multi awarded contributor has a significant impact to this community that an occasional contributor has not. This certificate looks like a smart marketing action to making 1X word spreaded over all the web more than a deserved acknowledgement to the important artists. Just my 2 cents.
Dear Paolo, your comment is not fair to many les successful 1x photographers. But you have to be more patient before publish such criticism. Please read Yvette article to the end and then write a comment. I repeat it here: "Keep an eye on your e-mail and in the Certificates pages because in the near future we will add more photographer certificates for different achievements on 1x"
Dear Miro, not sure if that final part of the text was there already at the time I read. However, I keep my though safe and I welcome this fair improvement.
Dear Paolo, that final part of the text was there when I wrote and published this article. Sorry ... !!!
Thanks Yvette for using my photo for the banner, no certificate as I'm still a free member.
Sorry that I didn't mail you about the banner, Jim ! Your photo was just perfect to announce this feature ;-)
