It's joy, it's happiness, it's surprise...it's WOW and it's our new assignment. Did you say wow? Here's what you need to do next: just be ready to capture the amazing, wonderful things that happen to people around you every day and then share the precious wow moments you've witnessed. We need to see some truly amazing stories this winter.

It's all about the story
If you're thinking of posing in the mirror with a wild expression of amazement, think twice. We do not want expressions and faces looking at the camera. We want the story, the context, the setting, the people and the faces, all in the same picture. Widen the frame and show us what made someone say or feel wow. Maybe you feel wow seeing a puppy coming out of a gift box or maybe you've just given a loaded credit card to your wife. Wow moments are always out there so be ready to see and capture a fireman rescuing a kitten from a tree with happy family cheering in the background, ecstatic children looking in a candy shop window, a marriage proposal in a hot air balloon, parents' first encounter with their baby, a couple under fireworks, a surfer catching the perfect wave, some little ballerinas doing a perfect ballet plie, a guy showing his wedding ring to his bestmen or you seeing your multi layered birthday cake (don't forget to show us the cake too!). And there are plenty more! First-time moments are always cute and fun to photograph like first snowflake on my puppy's nose, my cat's first walk in the snow, my baby's first bubble bath. It can be anything as long as it makes us smile and say wow.

Walking in a (winter) wonderland
With the winter holidays approaching, you'll have plenty of wow moments to shoot as people open presents, meet friends, have a snowball fight or have fun indoors and outdoors. Grab your camera, get into the holiday spirits and maybe you'll meet Santa. That would surely be a wow moment. People cheering as Christmas lights are being turned on, you eating Santa's cookies and being caught doing it, children skiing for the first time, your family saying wow to your pet in an amazing Xmas outfit, kids listening to grandma's wow stories next to the tree or children making a snowman as tall as your house, these are all great instances for wow shots. Don't limit yourselves to the holidays only, you can do many wow stuff in winter: take a selfie under a perfect white snowfall, attend a wonderful winter wedding, see an ice sculpture contest or a breathtaking winter festival of lights.

When you're done shooting, upload both Royalty Free and Editorial wow moments as follows and mark them as "assignment files":

1. upload the image via FTP or via upload page.
The image is now in your unfinished files, please do not edit the image from the unfinished files folder at all, instead go to the next step.
2. go to assignment page, choose escalate to level 5 or sell the rights option and hit submit.
3. choose the file you will be submitting to the assignment from the row of already uploaded images under the assignment text.
4. continue upload as usual.

Go ahead, wow us!
