For the upcoming edition of the Global Billboard Project, Feature Shoot is thrilled to be partnering with 500px to bring the work of talented photographers to the busy streets of New York City. We’ll be returning to a giant billboard on Manhattan’s 9th Avenue, just blocks away from the Port Authority Bus Terminal on the corner of 37th Street. This time, three winning photographers will get to exhibit their work front-and-center for one week, drawing an estimated 600,000 views. Each winner will also receive a $500 from 500px plus a 500px Pro Membership.
