Analysis and Verification of Top-Voted Photos

The first determinant of a winning photo is how many votes it receives between November 6 and November 15, 2023 — but it is not the sole determinant. The top 13 highest-voted photos must also be examined to ensure they meet the minimum photo eligibility requirements. Any photo that fails to meet image quality thresholds will be discarded. If this happens, the next most popular photo in line will be considered. This process will continue until there are 13 verified winners.
