Next Week’s Photo Challenge Contest Theme: Luxury Travel, sponsored by 500px Prime and Think Tank Photo
With the holidays just around the corner, we have one thing on the brain: Vacations! Whether it’s a cold-weather retreat in the mountains or a sunny tropical island getaway, we’re always on the lookout for inspirational photos that portray people living it up in the world’s most beautiful destinations! In fact, our editors over at 500px Prime, our commercial licensing platform, have been getting tons of buyer requests for this specific theme.

So 500px Prime would like to challenge you to go out, create, and upload photos that fit this theme: Luxury Travel—everything from glamping in the wilderness to a champagne toast by the beach to soaking up the rays on a yacht. Bonus points if you add people in your shot!

And since it’s the holidays, we’re going to sweeten the pot for you by throwing in an epic prize! Read on.


For this contest, we’re teaming up with our favorite camera bag company—Think Tank Photo. One winner of the photo that best captures Luxury Travel will win this awesome 4-wheeled roller bag: the Airport Roller Derby—perfect for your next photo-op getaway.
