I promise you this one is going to be challenging. Don't panic when you'll see there are 10 themes suggested for this assignment, you'll also have two full, crazy months to participate.

What we've thought, in our early years, that would be simply magical and unreachable, now it's for real. Our dream came true. 25 is a beautiful number and it's even more beautiful as it represents our new milestone. You already know that we celebrate every milestone, but this one is simply amazing - 25 million images online out of 45 million submitted. How about that?

You guys did it and it's all your merit. We are very proud and grateful to have the most loyal, wonderful, helpful and friendly community in this competitive world of stock photography. And we're not just saying it, we're proving it with a special assignment with a special prize: $6,100 - the highest license ever sold by an image on Dreamstime.

Prepare your cameras to be the best hunters, because our contest is a scavenger hunt kind of contest.

We've mixed some unusual themes for our "map" to get from you something funny, something nice, something crazy, something spice. And guess what, you can submit your images more quickly and easily if you use our Dreamstime Photography Companion mobile app. Haven't already downloaded it on your iPhones or Android phones? Check it here.


Here's our list of themes that you must hunt:

1. Favorite word - SELFIE. We all do it. So please try and convince us with a duck face, acting silly or as a diva. Don't act alone, bring your friends for a hell of a selfie. A little bit of (Oscar) history repeating.

2. We love FOOD - You think everybody else has had enough of food pics? We haven't. So take some snaps of your food plate each time you go to a restaurant and we'll reward you.

3. Let's PARTY - Like there's no tomorrow. Catch your friends' good vibe with your mobile phone and show us via our new app.

4. How about a GREAT ESCAPE? - If you like to travel, then you've witnessed mother nature's greatest landscapes, legendary ruins and unknown places. Just send us the proof.

5. Are you CRAZY? - Word ordinary or normal is prohibited here. We want to see outrageous, insane and out of the box images.

6. INTENSE COMPETITION - Do you think you can show us what angry or passionate about something one can be? Let's see some blood running through one's veins. Just wait to see our scores.

7. GIVE ME SHELTER - We're also looking for your emotional side. Every man should have a place called home and everyone should try to help those in need. Picture that.

8. BUSINESS - If you think we've seen all the possible business related images, well you're wrong. How would you shoot them from another point of view?

9. WOMEN - Yes, we know it's the most complex theme of them all, but it's also the most beautiful one. We challenge you.

10. SUSTAINABLE LIVING - Green living is the buzzword these days. You just can’t eat a tasty tomato grown up from a concrete backyard. Try to embrace nature, go blue and go green.


How do you get our $6,100:

You can submit maximum 25 images totally
Each image will be awarded points from 1 to 5
We count the best one for each category; if you submit more images to a certain category, the one with the biggest score will be counted
Then we sum up the points
If you submit with our Dreamstime app, you need to insert our special keyword: roaring25 when uploading.

So, take a deep breath and start uploading your best images, show us your treasures, collect points and win no less than $6,100.

How did we come up with $6,100? Shouldn't it be $25,000? :-)

Question... it may be obvious when we submit but how are images determined for which categories they go into? A businesswoman eating food at the Eiffel Tower crosses over four different categories, it may be hard to choose in some cases?

:) The score will be counted for a single category, no matter which one of them.

Yes, but if an image is qualified to be in four different categories, is there a way to assign it to a specific category?

I'm wondering how an image goes into a category.

I don't understand anything from this assignment... We must make 10 images for each topic or create one image features each 10 of the topics or flying pink pandas?...

I may be a bit of a noob here, but having uploaded images for contests and assignments, I'll throw in a piece of advice.

Many images speak to several themes. These... ...are not contest worthy. These are the artistic equivalent of a gallery image. Art of this caliber, while artistic in every sense of the word, does not demonstrate artistic focus. You need to find images that, while they may offer a plethora of themes, SCREAM of a SINGULAR, UNIQUE, and otherwise OVERSTATED message, enhanced by any others. That Singular Message is the category basis. Enter the photo in the category that best fits the message, and reflect on how the photo SPEAKS to YOU. It will be weighed on it's own merits later, and some contests offer feedback forums for you to see how received that message is by other people. That's how you develop your eye, and your vision. Your eye is about seeingcomposing the image, your vision is how you seecompose the message.

I hope this helps a few of you.

Not necessity, not desire - no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything - health, food, a place to live, entertainment - they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.

Fun times! Are you thinking about randomizing the order or creating a voting system to randomize things? 2 months is a long time, and this could create a lot of images - a significant disadvantage to uploading early, since you can't vote early...
