By Cherrie - 3 min read

This latest hot buyer trend is all about capturing landmarks from new perspectives!

Want to know exactly what photo buyers are looking for? Here’s a secret for you: Landmark photos are selling like crazy on EyeEm Market. So get involved! This newSeeing the Sights Mission is all about uploading incredible snaps of bucket list landmarks that buyers will love. A collection of thebest will get featured in a gallery post, and a select few will receive some EyeEm goodies in the post!

Your Mission: Show world-famous landmarks from striking new angles and unusual perspectives – and be sure to keep those iconic details that really define it. Avoid black & white this time around, and try not to capture people: This Mission is all about the landmark itself!

Be aware that capturing logos and protected buildings may make it difficult to sell the image commercially on EyeEm Market – read more about releases.

Your Reward: The top 5 shots, as chosen by our photo editors, will win a copy of the EyeEm Explore: A Collection of Real Photography, Volume 1 magazine and an EyeEm bag, as modelled below! A larger selection of pictures will be featured in an image collection right here on the EyeEm blog.

Deadline: November 30, 2015
