Get Featured on ISO and Win Cool Prizes!

Want to be featured on 500px ISO AND possibly win a prize while you’re at it?

A couple of times every month, we’ll announce a new photo challenge theme and give you a week or two to submit your entries. Sometimes we’ll even add a 500px Prime component and ask you submit your images to our licensing marketplace where they can begin making you money.

Our favorite photos are displayed in a winners post (like this one), and the overall winner will receive that week’s prize and some serious bragging rights.

This week’s lucky random winner is Sarah Allegra. Congrats Sarah, we’ve upgraded your account to Awesome for the next two months on the house!

Fashion Photography Contest Winner

A week and a half ago, in honor of New York Fashion Week, we launched a week-long contest to see what kinds of fashion photos our community could come up with! The rules: Upload between 1 and 3 new fashion photos to your 500px account. The prize: A brand new Fuji Instax Wide 300 camera with a pack of film donated by our good friends at Photojojo.

With only a week to submit images, it was a race to see who could go out and shoot some street style, editorial, BTS, runway, or any other kinds of fashion photography they saw fit. Here are 25 of our favorites from the almost 200 submitted:

As great as all the submissions were — and you can see all of them in the contest gallery here — somebody had to take home the Fuji Instax Wide 300 from Photojojo… And the winner is…

Drum Roll Please…

O by Cristian Todea!

We picked this photo because of the incredible use of textures. Everything she’s wearing, even the clutch, is black, but each piece brings something different to the photo — from the shearling, to the denim, to the studs in her earrings.

A big thanks to Cristian for taking and uploading three of our favorite photos of the entire contest! To see more of his work, or if you’re a fashion photography fan at all, be sure to follow him on 500px!

And if you didn’t win, don’t sweat it! We’ll announce another contest very soon. In the meantime, check out last week’s Fashion Forward series for more awesome fashion photography, or click here to see 37 of the happiest animals on earth.
