Step 3
Pay the 24 USD entry fee

Pay through PayPal secure servers. You don't need a PayPal account and we do not store any credit card number. 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.

This year’s winner can choose either $3000 or any of these cameras:

either a Nikon D850, a Sony a7rIII or a Canon 5D mark IV

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.
