Flickr’s 20th birthday celebration begins with a photo contest!

Hip hip hooray, it’s almost our birthday! On February 10th, we are celebrating Flickr’s 20th birthday! To kick things off we’re announcing a special Flickr Birthday Photo contest and we’re inviting you all to the party. This contest will be sure to bring about your colorful side. If there is one thing that is iconic to Flickr it is our logo colors, blue and that beautiful hot pink. For this photo contest, we want to see how you incorporate those colors into your own photography.

The rules are simple. 

Join us over in the  Flickr’s 20th Birthday Photo Contest Group. Check out our FAQs and then upload one single photo that you think best features the Flickr colors, blue and hot pink. 

There are no date or tagging requirements for this contest. Just one single photo, capturing that iconic blue and pink vibe. The photo contest starts today, Thursday February 1st and ends at 9pm PST on Thursday, February 29th.
