Global Billboard Project 

Have a photo you want hundreds of thousands of people to see? 500px and Feature Shoot are partnering up for this latest round of the global photo competition, The Global Billboard Project which connects the public with the work of talented photographers.

The theme for this round of the competition is: ‘Stand Out Shots’! Photos that will grab the attention of busy New Yorkers and stop them in their tracks. Photos submitted should combine boldness, memorability, and eye-catching power.


Photographers of all ages and backgrounds working across all genres and residing in all areas of the world. Entrants must be a member of the 500px global community.


Three photographers will be chosen to have one of their images appear on this billboard in New York (pictured above) for a week each. Each winner will also receive US$500 from 500px; a 500px Pro Membership; guides, gear, software and more!


Submitting to the Global Billboard Awards is easy and should take less than 2 minutes. Please make sure you have the following ready:

  • Either one image, five images or up to ten images from any genre of photography.
  • Size: at least 760 pixels wide (JPEG/JPG/TIFF/PNG format)
