When we joined forces with two world-class companies to bring the ultimate photography adventure to one lucky 500px photographer, we expected some incredible submissions. But with over 30,000 epic photos submitted to the ‘Adventure Seeker‘ Quest, done in partnership with Skylum and Iceland Photo Tours, we had an equally-epic difficult decision to make.

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the 500px Gallery of the top 100 finalists in the ‘Adventure Seeker‘ Quest. But without further ado, we’d like to introduce the winner and two runners-up of our all-expenses-paid Iceland photography challenge.

Our grand prize winner, Valdemaras D., earned the photography trip of a lifetime for two to Iceland with his spectacular shot, below. As our grand prize winner, he also takes home a full Skylum software bundle, including Luminar 3, Aurora HDR 2019, and Photolemur 3, a Daniel Kordan video tutorial, and a year-long 500px Pro subscription!

And don’t miss the jaw-dropping work by our two runners-up, Hayden Scott and Florian Grieger:

Congratulations to our winner and runners-up, and our sincerest thanks to every one of the photographers that submitted their work. Your creativity and drive makes our community better.
