This summer, Depositphotos is launching their first photography contest! The theme of the contest is Authenticity 2.0, which explores what authenticity means to photographers as they document candid moments in their everyday life.

The contest will run on Instagram until the 31 of August. We ask that you fill out a form to confirm your participation and include the required tag and hashtag for up to 5 image submissions.
