Levels

Levels turn creativity from a passion to livelihood.

New levels unlock perks that give you more exposure to unlock rewards that help make you a Pro.

How leveling works

Photos are nominated on Snapwire Community. Once you become a Shooter or above, you'll earn points when your shots are nominated, marked as Premium or purchased by buyers. The higher your level, the more you can submit.
