500px + The National Ballet of Canada

Published by Sara Collaton · January 2nd 2013

It’s our first day back in the office after a quick break for the holidays. 2013 will be a big year for us. We have a lot of new features we can’t wait to share with you and hope you’ve enjoyed the ones we have so far. One thing we want to focus on is building more with our community of photographers worldwide. That means hosting more meetups and getting our users out shooting more, and with each other. To start we hosted a local event in collaboration with The National Ballet of Canada. Let us know if you have ideas for events in your area, email

The Nutcracker Rehearsal

A few weeks ago we teamed up with The National Ballet of Canada to help us with an exclusive photography opportunity. I worked to cast and enlist four enthusiastic Toronto photographers, joining me in photographing rehearsals of The National Ballet of Canada's winter classic — The Nutcracker. With over 341 performances since its premiere and over 1,530 National Ballet students who have performed in this ballet it's not one to miss. The Nutcracker holds its final show of the season this Friday, January 5th 2013 and there are still tickets available. You can find more information about it or purchase tickets here.

We'd like to share with you a photo from each story submitted by the winners. Be sure to click on each image to read each photographers’ story about the shoot.
