Fotostrasse Missions

A monthly instagram competition for you

Fotostrasse Missions is our Instagram competition! It will happen every month with a different theme. Every first Tuesday of every month we will announce the winner of last month’s mission and on Thursday (lastest), we will update this page with the new theme.

If we love your photo and it follows the month’s theme, submit it to our mission! You could win the a place on our blog post about the winners of each month’s missions. We will feature your Instagram account and you’ll get fame, fortune, champagne, private jets, yachts and much more (just kidding, you’ll just get more followers LOL).

On our facebook group we give the chance for our fans to help us pick the best of the best.

Do you want to join? This month’s theme is… In The Dark.

This month we want to see you abilities in the low light environments. Think of dark conditions like a walk after dark, inside a club, that cool show you just saw, light paining and more. If you’re not sure where to start, think simple. Try to get the trails that car lights will make on your photo if you leave your speed at 1 or 2 seconds, try to do a portrait in the moonlight, play with a flashlight in front of you camera for 30 seconds… Get creative! Try to experience as much as you can in this month since we’ll pick our favorites photos and make a post about it. You’ll have your own images on an online display for over 50.000 people a month to see!

The winners will receive mentions on our social media, links to their Instagram accounts and a critique from a professional photographer with over 10 years experience. If you need help with photo tips, check out our blog posts about photography.


Here are the rules to be part of our mission:

(Please make sure you check all the boxes here. If you miss one, you’re disqualified)

1. Subscribe to get our newsletter!

We promise that we’ll send you only 1 email per month and we’ll never share your data with anybody (So yes, there’s no risk of spam, guys. Relax)

2. Follow us on instagram

This is basic, right? We’re doing an Instagram mission to create awareness that we’re on Instagram.

The more people we reach, the better it is for the mission and its participants.

3. Tag the photo with #Fotostrasse and tag us (@fotostrasse) too

We need to see your photo somehow.

Tagging #Fotostrasse and @Fotostrasse is the best way to do it, guys.

Submit as much as you want, there’s no limit for that. Just please tag us and use our hashtag on every single picture you want us to consider.

4. The photo has to be yours and has to be from this month

Maybe you think it is stupid to say that but we had more than once, people entering this competition with other people’s work.

So, does not matter where in the world you’re from and where you picture is taken. We only care about the authenticity and that your submission follows the deadline. So no re-tagging older photos, guys.


Now the bureaucratic part, some terms & conditions for you:

1. Prizes are non-transferable and you need to redeem it within seven (7) days, ok? So as soon as you hear from us, send us everything we ask ASAP.

2. Depending on the month, there will be more than just 1 winner. In other words, the chances of winning are really high!

4. By entering your photo to our contest, you grant the right to use it for digital marketing purposes. Full credit will be given whenever it is used, of course!
