Pushed by this new mobile photography craze, Picwant - the first photo agency in the world specialising exclusively in mobile photography - is quickly making a name for itself at international level.

Today, to raise awareness on the platform and attract new users among the many who daily publish images on social networks challenging each other with shares and likes, Picwant launches the contest "Get more than likes".

The initiative, as its name promises, allows to go beyond a simple 'like': win big prizes, publish pictures on the dedicated website http://beapicker.picwant.com , share them with a community of enthusiasts, and finally participate in a major - strictly "mobile only" - photographic exhibition.

Running until the 31st of August 2016, the contest is open to both amateurs and professional adults photographers who reside in the United States, United Kingdom and Italy and is a great opportunity to get closer to the world of Picwant.

After registering and creating an account, users will be able to participate in the contest by simply uploading on the website a picture related to the theme of TRAVEL and type the keyword "Contest" in the dedicated box. From landscapes to people, from nature to food, from monuments to leisure and cultural events, users will be able to upload more than one picture at different times to increase their chances of winning.

Every week for 2 months, the best photographs, standing out for visual impact, composition, originality, technique and creativity will win an edreams voucher worth $552.The overall winner will be awarded with a PICKER KIT including professional photography equipment for smartphones.
