500px is launching a new contest to recognize and celebrate the 500px Licensing community. A growing, fresh, and contemporary portfolio is often a key to success in commercial photography. With Licensing Rush we’ll be highlighting those photographers who make regular additions to their Licensing collection.

Once signed up, we’ll be looking at all photos submitted and accepted to Licensing between March 1 – 31st. The participating photographers with the most photos accepted within the timeframe will win one of three cash prizes.

1st Place: $300 USD 
2nd Place: $150 USD
3rd Place: $50 USD
