The lowdown on our new weekly contests

Since the very beginning Agora has always launched a new photo Contest every Friday to make up a bustling annual calendar of 52 universal concepts, with the exception of unique Contest’s such as #TheWorldWeWant, #StayHome and the #BestPhotoOf2020.

However, the Agora Team now believes it’s time to take things up a notch and vary the dynamic of our contests to make sure there’s always plenty for you to get your teeth stuck into.

That’s why today we’ve launched our first ever edition of the #BestOfTheWeek photo Contests. See how they differ from Agora’s usual contests now and submit your photos in your bid to be part of the world’s best photo’s of the week.
