10 @ iStock

iStock Photography hits the big 10 on April 7th.  To celebrate a decade of leading and helping shape the stock photography industry into what it is today they will be unleashing $21,000 worth of cold hared cash.  Check out their write up below and see how you can join in the party.

iStockphoto turns 10
On April 7, we’re celebrating 10 years of iStockphoto by giving away a pile of cash and prizes. Like a total of $21,000 USD. Yeah, we’re pumped about it too. 

Upload your face and win
Since so many people have helped make iStock what it is, we thought it would be cool to show everyone off. This means you! To join the “Faces of iStock” you need to take a photo of, well, you, and upload it over at

Then on April 7 we’ll send you an email letting you know how to find your self-portrait and share it with your friends. Did we mention one lucky photo will score its owner a cool $1,000 and a seriously cool iStock swag pack? We thought you’d like that part.

Win more great stuff
We spent a lot of time trying to figure out what would make a great prize for a 10th anniversary contest. iStock credits? T-shirts? Digital cameras? Then we realized that if there’s one thing everyone loves, it’s money. Dollars. Moolah. Cold, hard cash. And lots of it. That’s why we’ll be having a grand-prize draw for $10,000. Watch for the email or visit on April 7 to learn how to enter.

We also know that when it comes to prizes, more is better. When the big day comes, we’ll be giving away something (iPad anyone?) every hour on Twitter for 24 straight hours. That’s 24 chances to win 24 killer prizes. Follow us on Twitter now so you don’t miss out on further prize-winning instructions.
