What are EyeEm Missions?

Missions are contests where photographers submit photos on a set theme – these range widely and are designed to maximize creativity and test your photography skills. Missions are often run in partnership with brands and publishers, who sponsor great prizes, exhibit the final selection or even buy the images to feature in advertising campaigns.

EyeEm Magazine Vol. 1 featured many Mission winners.

How can I enter a Mission?

Check the Missions (iOS) or News (Android) tab in the app and see which ones are currently running. Submit your photo by adding the Mission title as a tag. You can also add an existing photo from your EyeEm profile by opening it in the app and selecting “Edit Photo”. Then simply add the tag.


What prizes can I win?

In the last twelve months alone, EyeEm photographers have won some incredible prizes: Light L16 cameras, a Sony SmartShot QX10/QX100 lens, MOO vouchers, tickets to the Apple Music Festival, a $1,500 scholarship, getting exhibited at Paris’s Photoquai biennale – the list goes on and on!

What’s more, winning and shortlisted images star in dedicated Mission recap posts on the EyeEm Blog and the Discover Feed in your EyeEm app, each and every time – with full credits back to you and your EyeEm profile!
