Every month our agency has an assignment contest. Photographers who have at least 50 images online can submit his/her work; this then gives the option to either escalate the file to level 5 pricing, or sell the rights of the image for an instant bonus. Each concept submitted must be sold EXCLUSIVELY with Dreamstime.

One day - long time ago - a very shocking piece of news has been broadcasted to the world: spaghetti started to grow in trees. It was so amazing that people wanted to know how they could grow their own spaghetti in this way. One morning, on April 1st, Mrs. Jones looked in the mirror and didn't understand where the moustache on her face came from. Neighbours will never forget that scream.

What do you say? Do you like playing tricks on your friends and family? Sure you do, that's why we invite you to be a part of our new assignment: We like to prank. You have a full month of Fools' Day, so prepare your tricks and start taking pictures.

We want to see the look on their faces when they realize they've been fooled, that reaction that makes every minute spent to arrange the prank worth it. We're absolutely sure you're more creative than us, but just giving you a few tips: put a spider toy on their pillow or draw something on their faces while they're sleeping. The joke with the I've-been-fooled sticky note on their backs seems to be too classical, but there are hundreds of ways of walking with something strange stuck on you. You might as well fool your smoking friends with a cracker cigarette. It's possible they quit smoking after that. Catch on camera their surprised faces!

We would like to see original hoaxes, ones that have never been tried out.

Our Fools' Day theme is more than pranking your friends. Snapshots of the funniest faces will be highly appreciated. Show us the way you're fooling around: put some tomatoes on your eyes, or a banana as your mouth, stick out your tongue, make odd dancing moves. Just entertain us with your facial and body gesturing.

We want to laugh out loud, so you must be damn funny to take our $300 for the first place, $200 for the second place and $100 for the third place. Winners will also get our Dreamstime branded tees, perfect for sticky notes :) .
