Step 3
Pay the 22 USD participation fee

Pay through PayPal secure servers. You don't need a PayPal account. 1000for1 is an independent competition that has no sponsor and does not resell your images, therefore a small subscription fee is required to offer such great prizes and run the competition.

1000for1 is run by photographers for photographers this is why this contest is run according to the Artists’ Bill of Rights: there will be no other uses of the submitted pictures other than the ones strictly related to running the contest. A gallery of the winning pictures along with the shortlisted ones will be published on this site. Please note that that we will fully credit each picture which is published.

  • September 21: competition opens, submit your photos!

  • January 31, 23:59 GMT OR as soon as 1000 participants are reached: submissions close

    Do you know that the average photography competition has way more than 1000 contestants? By limiting the number of entrants you have a higher chance of winning the competition. 

  • February 15: finalists announced

Your photographs will be judged in two rounds: first our staff will select a series of photographs and then the judges will nominate the winner, chosen among the finalists
