Major Advertisers Find FOAP

Posted on 4/20/2015 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Foap, is hosting a NYC photo contest that awards $200 each for the best New York City photos in four different categories. The contest is in partnership with Mastercard

The four categories are: The Essence of New York City, Iconic Places in New York City, Parks in New York City and SoHo and Greenwich Village. To enter, smartphone photographers need to download the Foap app; sign up for a free Foap account and submit photos in any of the four categories by April 30.  

Tourists as well as New York City residents may enter. The same competition is running for four categories in Paris. You can check out the Foap mission pages to see what others have submitted so far.



The Foap app, which launched in 2012 as a way for iPhone photographers to easily earn cash for their photos, usually pays out $5 for each photo. For companies, the app is a good way to buy more interesting, non-stock images. Brands and agencies pay $10 to use Foap  photos. Foap gives the image creator half that amount and pockets the other half.

With the Foap app, the same photo may be licensed multiple times. Foap is encouraging other brands to launch missions, like the Mastercard NYC photo challenge. In this manner brands can request specific subject matter and give creators more incentive in the way of cash, or other awards, to participate in Foap missions.
