By sharing your photos online, you can test how good your camera skills are. The photos you share will be your entry for the Global Leaderboards. Polish those photography skills and upload your photos to compete with other Pokemon photographers around the world!

There's no information yet if having highly ranked photos will award you with anything. But, just having bragging rights would still be great!
