Thanks for being patient with the latest installment of our Weekly Contest, folks! This week, we’ll announce a new photo theme to challenge you to get out and shoot. You’ll have until June 13th, Sunday to submit your photo as an entry. You may already have an existing photo that fits the theme, or you can take this as a challenge to shoot and upload a brand new photo. If we like your photo, you’ll be featured here on 500px ISO!

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to submit your best Close-up shots. We’ve gotten more than 1,200 entries! Thanks to everyone who got up close and personal—and creative—with their subjects, and submitted their entries! Below are the 500px team’s 30 favorite Close-up shots.

Browse more shots from last week’s Close-up photo challenge.

Next week’s theme: Symmetry/b>

1. Select a photo that fits this theme. Upload the image to your 500px profile, or pick an existing photo.
2. Add the tag 500pxSymmetry.

From portraits to landscapes, the theme is open to your own interpretation. So grab your gear, start shooting, and tagging now! Deadline is July 13th at 11:59PM Pacific Time.

As always, we held a random draw giveaway for all those who enter the challenge. Anyone who enters the contest will have the chance to win two months of Awesome membership. This week’s lucky winner is Constantin Fellermann! Congrats, Constantin, we’ll be contacting you and upgrading your account to Awesome shortly.

We can’t wait to see your photos! Good luck, everyone!
