Want to be featured on 500px ISO? Today, we’ll announce a new photo challenge theme. You’ll have until next Monday 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 new photo.

This Week’s Self-Portraits Contest Winners
Last week, we asked you to turn the lens on yourself and challenged you to shoot a self-portrait. Whether you call it self-portrait or selfie, the theme really struck a chord with you, because we’ve received more than 300 entries. We were really inspired by the many different poses and locations you used in the self-portraits you’ve tagged and entered on 500px—we especially enjoyed seeing night sky self-portraits. Thanks to everyone who submitted and got creative with their shots! To view the rest of the photo submissions, you can visit the contest gallery.
