“Aim for the Moon. If you miss, you may hit a star.”

Moonshot encourages players to take on a variety of photography objectives in the form of dynamic community challenges, quests, and competitions.
Once all photos have been submitted, Moonshot players vote on their favorite (or most applicable) entry for each challenge. When the event ends, the winners are chosen based on accumulated community votes! Individual votes award small amounts of XP while challenge victories award large amounts!
How Moonshot Works
Snap and Submit
To encourage authenticity and fairness, Moonshot only allows for the submission of legitimate photos taken from within the Moonshot app. Competition should always be fair and accessible.
Create a challenge
Users can submit a photo with one hashtag, which will then begin or enter a 3-day community photography competition. Share your experiences and encourage others to participate!
Challenges include competition elements, and votes are integral to the Moonshot experience! You can upvote your favorite photos and even use badges to support them!
Every action in Moonshot will award you experience points. Submissions, participation, votes, victories, even defeats! Your Moonshot camera is your weapon, level up to unlock powerful new abilities and features!
Conquer the Leaderboards
Submitted photos automatically compete with other challenge submissions and are ranked in real-time based on community voting! Moonshot features photos based exclusively on community popularity!
Become a Moonstar
Only the top 10 players in the Moonshot community are given the "Moonstar" title. Gather XP by submitting photos, voting in competitions, and winning challenges to earn it!
Security and Privacy
We do not track or share user data in any way!
No third-party analytics or monetization of user information. Ever.
Moonshot will never use ads! Instead, we will introduce optional skills and camera themes that can be purchased using mooncoins, a premium currency which can be earned slowly through gameplay or purchased directly using in-App Purchases!
