NOW OPEN – Your Best Shot 2022

NOW OPEN - Your Best Shot 2022

It’s that time of year again! Submissions to Your Best Shot 2022 are now open in the contest group  and will be open through January 4. Submit your single best shot of the year for a chance to win one of six prizes.

Submission Requirements

1) Your photo had to be uploaded to Flickr in 2022 (and must be an original taken by you).

2) You may only submit one safe photo to the group’s photo pool—we know it’s a bit like picking your favorite child, but we certainly want to see your best.

3) To be eligible for prizes, you must add ONE of the following tags (keywords) to your photo. Use the one category that best describes your image: YBSPeople22, YBSNature22, YBSAnimals22, YBSUrban22, YBSThroughHerLens22, YBSThroughTheirLens22, or YBSOpen22. To learn more about these categories, visit the contest FAQs. Unsure how to tag your photos? Check this help article

You in? Join the group now and submit your single best shot between December 1, 2022, and January 4, 2023.


This year’s prizes are as fantastic as they are functional, helping you at every step of your photo adventures.

It all starts with a spacious, rugged, beautifully designed bag from our partners at Peak Design, chosen specifically for each category.:


  • People and portraits: Everyday Backpack Zip 20L
  • Nature: Everyday Backpack 30L
  • Animals: Everyday Backpack 30L
  • Urban: Everyday Messenger 13L
  • Through Her/Their Lens: Everyday Totepack 20L
  • Open: Everyday Backpack 20L

With your storage and hauling needs handled, we’re also giving a Capture One Pro 23 license to category winners for picture-perfect edits, every time.

And last but not least, every category winner will also receive a year of Flickr Pro, so those gorgeous photos can inspire others to give us their best next year.

Ready to roll? Submissions close January 4, 2023, so start looking for your favorite photos of the year. We can’t wait to see them.
