Pickture: A Creative Hub that Champions Photography
Reaching up to 100,000 Instagrammers, the new way of image sharing is here to stay. Whether it is through the use of a smartphone or SLR camera, photography is at the heart of the way we capture our lives. Pickture, a photographic contest app, brings out the professional photographer in everyone and rewards users for images that define their world.
Pickture has gathered a strong global following since its launch, by providing users with a platform to enter their images into topical contests, giving them a chance to win a selection of prizes. From landscape, animals, portraits, macro, black and white to street photography, the various topics inspire photographers to share their images. Winners are then selected through a combination of user’s picks and judges from the photographic community. Prizes include PayPal cash vouchers and great prizes from Pickture’s product partners, including Postercandy, Instawink, Instalab, Picglaze and Printrbook.
“Pickture’s users are diverse – from the budding photographer and smartphone user to the professional photographer travelling the world. One thing our users have in common is their interest in sharing great images and being rewarded for it. Pickture celebrates users and offers them a unique platform where they can connect with the photographic community,” said Vincent Tan, Co-founder of Pickture.
Pickture’s reach has increased to over 100,000 Instagrammers through a series of collaborations that sees Pickture champion photography and shine the spotlight on hundreds of specific groups, their themes and users.
“Pickture’s growth has shown the power of photography and image sharing around the world. This growth highlights the desire photographer’s have for a platform such as Pickture that support the industry and connects them with a like-minded community.”
The growth has contributed to the constant stream of inspiration that is available through Pickture’s Instagram account (@Contest_Club_Pickture). A recently introduced ability to share entries via Facebook further extends the Pickture community and creates integration across the social platforms. Future collaborations will extend the prizes on offer and the topics that Pickture celebrates.
