Burst's Ambition photography contest

After asking our contributor community to photograph ambition, we’re proud to share the spectacular results with you.

This is what ambition looks like

Between December 2018 and January 2019, we hosted a photo contest and asked photographers around the world to capture and share what ambition means to them. By sharing photos of their unique perspectives, creators of all types had the chance to upgrade their photography gear. Prizes included a DJI Mavic 2 Zoom drone and gift cards to photography retailers.

From Los Angeles to Bali, contest participants shared what abmition looks like to them – and the results were spectacular. With over 1,000 photos shared, choosing just three winners was incredibly difficult.

The selected images showcase ambition in a way that’s universal yet still distinctive, and convey a compelling narrative.

And the winners are...
