You may submit as many photos as you wish so best of luck of everyone. In their words It’s the 45th anniversary of the legendary Yellow Boot, a design icon that evolved through the years into an improved, diverse urban boot. Image by Tom Sodoge To celebrate its global identity, Timberland is teaming up with the Unsplash community to showcase photography from Unsplash contributors in Timberland’s international campaign to create a glowing collective experience. Timberland will also be commissioning a selection of Unsplash contributors to shoot their anniversary collection. The mission is to capture the true essence of “Global Urban Hikers / Adventurers”, which encompasses values of inclusivity, freedom, and beauty. How you can participate Submit a photo that captures the essence of Timberland’s brand. The type of photos Timberland is looking to feature have a wide range.
