The 2016 Vertical Photo Contest is back! This year, we’ve eliminated the entry fee, streamlined the number of categories and introduced a new prize — the Readers’ Choice Award.

Between now and 11:59 p.m. ET on October 14, 2016, upload your photos for a chance to win one of these prizes:

GRAND PRIZE – $1,000 cash, plus photo on the cover of the Dec-Jan Vertical (One winner)
FIRST PLACE – $500 cash (One winner in each category)
SECOND PLACE – $250 cash (One winner in each category)
THIRD PLACE – $100 cash (One winner in each category)

NEW! READERS’ CHOICE – $500 cash (One winner)

The Readers’ Choice prize will be awarded for the photo that has the most online votes. You and your friends can vote for two photos in every 24-hour period — which means the sooner you upload your photos, the more chances you have to win! For more details about how our contest works, see ABOUT and RULES.
