Maestro & Expert 360Cities Contributors
Maestro 360cities Contributors

A MAESTRO badge recognizes a select group of photographers for their exceptional contribution to the 360Cities Panoramic World.

The MAESTRO badge will be displayed right next to the EXPERT badge next to the photographer’s name.

We’ll be updating the MAESTRO list on a regular basis. If you have ambitions of becoming a 360Cities MAESTRO, you can contact one or more of them for inspiration – the easiest way to approach them is via the comments feature on the panorama pages. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the MAESTROs!

360Cities is the place for the most beautiful panoramas from around the world

Once we see that you consistently publish panoramas that meet our technical and quality requirements we'll grant you an expert status. This means that your newly published panoramas will immediately be selected for 360Cities and will appear on our map, search results, nearby places and recent activity list, and will not first have to go through our standard review process. It's our way of recognizing the consistent quality of the panoramas you have been publishing.

Becoming an expert contributor
Most published contributors of 360Cities that signed up before February 2011 are already expert contributors automatically. You can see your expert contributor status in your account dashboard. To become an expert contributor keep publishing panoramas that meet our technical and quality requirements for some time. If we see consistency in your published panoramas, we'll make you an expert contributor. Please do not write to us asking to become an expert contributor. We'll review your account when we see you've been publishing good-quality content.

Losing an expert contributor status
If you start publishing panoramas that do not qualify for our technical or quality requirements you can lose your trusted status. Therefore, once you are an expert contributor, make sure you only publish beautiful panoramas! If you ever lose your expert status, you can gain it back by consistently publishing new good-quality panoramas but it will take some (possibly long) time before you get it back.
