Top 100 Contestants

Top 100 Contestants in Issue 20

We love this competition the most because you don't have to win first place to win a feature in this competition! The top 100 contestants will be featured in this upcoming issue.

Why should you submit?

We pride ourselves with embracing photography that has shaped our community and culture throughout the years. Growing up with tumblr and seeing a different level of perspective from creatives that didn't fit the norm made us want to showcase it even further. We are a part of an international community of creatives that elevate this type of creative expression and we want you to be a part of that.

Aside from being featured and known as one of the best in your community, we offer cash prizes that help give you the opportunity to continue doing what you love and building your careers further.

Whether you win first place or not, the top 100 contestants will be featured in our next print issue!

We are looking for our next Muse
