One of the ways our clients (and we) source great photos from you is through Missions! Its also the most entertaining way we can think of as a way of doing this. Who doesn’t like a bit of competition? Its also the best way for one single photo to make upwards of $100.
Joining a Mission
In the app, pick the Missions tab, check out the ongoing Missions, and pick the one you find appealing. Check out the Mission description and example photo and upload a photo you think fits the bill! Remember, in order to add photos to a Mission on Foap, you need to be a verified user. Then observe our social media and the tab of that Mission to see the winner!
How are winners chosen?
While we can’t speak from our clients perspective, as they are free to select any photo entered into the Mission that they see fit for whatever reason, we can share a little bit of our approach. We take into consideration all the photos in the Mission, and then our Community, Support and Creative teams come together to deliberate on the best photo in their opinion. This is based of course on the aim and objective of the Mission. Yes, there is a great deal of discretion in this process, but this is photography, not a marathon, so the winner is not always as obvious and it will always be a question of personal opinion and preferences. 😉
Approving and rejecting photos
While the photos in Missions are up for Community Review, like all photos on Foap, photos in Missions can be up for Second Review. If your photo doesn’t make it through Second Review, don’t take it personally. For example, many brand managers managing their brand’s Mission on Foap cut down the photos to a certain number, as a shortlist to make the final choice easier or to further give you an indication of what kind of photos are being searched for.

Hi, I for the first time encountered second Review (I think) and I am baffled by that process. I learned that since I did not make the mission second cut my picture will be removed not only from the mission but from my account also. Which means I have to re-upload all the pics that did not make it. Hmmm, excuse me, but this seems a bit disrespectful. First of all, I think my pics were ok for the mission, but I can understand that someone at Foap thinks they are not. That’s fine… But going a step further and remove them from my account is a step too far. They still made the first cut, have been approved, so why not just leave them on Foap. If the mission people don’t want it that’s fine, it can still be of use to someone else. So my pet peeve is that it is taken off the account and we have to resubmit. Which means looking them all up AGAIN and submit, and keyword for a second time. It’s also not very clear which ones have been taken off since they still are in my management row and show up in my profile. I do not think that not being chosen for the final cut deserves to have the pics removed… Repeat: very disrespectful and not motivating!
