About WINNING Fotos

At WINNINGfotos, our philosophy is to inspire deeper customer connections. This permeates into everything we do, from how we designed our core technology to how we create custom apps.

WINNINGfotos was founded by technology entrepreneurs, who are experts in big data, who believed they could create a system of artificial intelligence for identifying, organizing, selecting and gaining insight from photos that has not existed before.

Since our launch, brands around the world use our platform to emotionally connect with their audience, using the photos taken by their own community. Our solutions provide engagement, content and insights from mobile phone photos sourced from any audience, customers, and employees.
