Our 2019 photo contest: SMALL BILL, BIG THRILL: A little Cash goes a Long Way that was launched on the 4th of September, together with Wipplay, has inspired numerous shots to date – over 600 creatively-captured and captioned images in fact!

You still have a chance to win exciting cash prizes by submitting your photos here! We’d love to hear your stories about how a little cash goes a long way! In the meantime, we’re sharing with you a few submitted snapshots to give you some inspiration:


“China Town… Paris 13th arrondissement, a long queue for a delicious pork bun offered at a low price! Yum yum. Waiting in the canteen.”

“New York… The city that never sleeps!!! CASH ONLY….. The little expense of the day is a green banknote; to have beautiful shiny shoes and be a perfect Working Boy!”

“At the café, the emptiness of waiting is filled by thought. A precious moment to spend.”

“The farmer from a remote village gives me two apples from his stock for the winter. A while later, a small glass of his homemade alcohol … we are far from a society where all gestures have a price!”

“Having a beer in Munich, set in a ‘biergarten’ to make the best of the simple pleasures: being  together, relaxing, enjoying”

“May 2018, a ticket for a boat trip on Lake Königssee in Bavaria. Time to let yourself enjoy, disconnect from everything that happens too fast and to surrender to daydreaming in front of nature. A small simple pleasure, but big in necessity.”
