Depositphotos Photography Contest: Authenticity 2.0

No contest submission fee. Just your work, your vision, and your story

The first photography contest from Depositphotos. The theme of the contest is Authenticity 2.0, which explores what authenticity means to photographers as they document candid moments in their everyday life. We're looking to support independent professionals around the world in their artistic pursuits and can't wait to see your submissions.

We are looking to define authenticity through visuals of candid moments in everyday life. Participants explore the notion of authenticity through the eyes of a photographer, showcasing their own signature style or aesthetic. The contest has no categories, just a central theme that focuses on authentic photography.

Where to submit: The contest will run on Instagram. We accept up to 5 image submissions per person.

For the duration of the contest, we will be selecting images from runner-ups and will post them on our Instagram feed. In September, the judging rounds will take place. The final winners will be announced on the contest Instagram account on October 1, 2020.

The contest is already open for entries. Participate today and get a chance to win a mirrorless camera for your future projects.

If you have any questions about the contest please message us on Instagram. Full information about the Depositphotos photography contest can be found on the Depositphotos blog.
