I'm often amazed how many of the iPad Air prizes that Dreamstime gives away to designers go completely unclaimed. It looks like the threshold for winning isn't very hard -- looking at prior winners, it looks like the image only needs to be downloaded a handful of times before a winner is selected.

I thought they always gave the prize. Do they sometimes go unclaimed? Arent they just given to a random active photographer who's regularly on the forum or are their specific download targets?

Sorry, I probably wasn't clear. Every 10,000,000 images, Dreamstime offers two prizes; one goes to photographer/illustrator who uploads the milestone image, and the other goes to a buyer who purchases that image. All of the photographer/illustrator prizes appear to be awarded. It's the buyer/designer prizes that are often still listed as TBA (to be announced). Checking out the images, it looks like only a few downloads are needed by qualified buyers to get awarded. I am often surprised how many of those are awaiting buyers to win the prizes.

A new milestone was reached today -- 190 million images.

Also, rereading the prize info, it looks like the photographer/illustrator who uploads the image gets an iPad Air, and the buyer prize is 100 credits (not an iPad Air).

10,000,000 Isn't that Ten Million images? How can anyone get that? Dreamstime has been a disaster for me as I've no way of getting to the $100 threshold for payout.

No, they award a prize if your image is the x millonth image downloaded on DT.
They run this contest every 10 million images. So the 190,000,000th downloaded image gets a prize, the 200,000,000th image, and so on.
