The points will not be considered for the MOW or any other such award on Techulator. It will just be added as a bonus to your account for uploading your picture. However, it can help you to improve your overall rank.
For giving such awards, we look at the overall value of the contributions by the member. There are several non-contribution ways to earn extra points and we would consider them as well but overall we are looking for useful content. If you earn lot of points by posting photos, referring people etc and another person earns almost same points by posting articles/answers, he has higher chances of winning the awards.
