Be On the Cover of Our New iPad App + Call for Beta Testers

Published by Jen Tse · September 13th 2011



The long-awaited 500px iPad app is nearing completion and now we're looking to our community to add the finishing touch. Since there are so many amazing photos on the site, we need your help to choose one photo from 500px to use as the default cover. Want it to be yours? Simply leave a comment on this post with a link to your very best photo and we will select one exceptional entry to appear whenever someone launches the 500px app. Talk about exposure!

Requirements:

The photo must be hosted on 500px.com.
The original photo must be at least 1024 px x 1024 px.
The photo must look good in both landscape and portrait mode (see above for example).
No watermarks, please!

Finally, we are looking for 15 to 20 beta testers from the community who want to try the app before wide release. Please send an email to ash@500px.com if interested.

EDIT: We have enough beta testers already. Thanks for all the interest!

I don't know if this is my best or not, I picked the one that went both portrait and landscape without it changing the look of it.

I'm really looking forward to the app, and wish I could have been one of the Beta testers. If you need any more, let me know :)

With all the great photos on 500px, I doubt any of mine will be good enough. Here's one just for the fun of it. http://500px.com/photo/1050818

Thank you everyone for your submissions. Keep them coming!

The cover will change frequently (every week or two) with photos that will be chosen by our editors from the Popular section. For the first cover we wanted to give everyone an opportunity to submit their photo.

(this "be on the cover" is a very good idea. Good work!)
