It’s the mother of all photo contests. The search engine Bing, to celebrate its 5-year anniversary of existence, is once again letting the user dictate the content of its homepage via competition.
Over the last five years, Bing has experienced major growth, making it the second largest web crawler after Google.
“Google Sites led the U.S. explicit core search market in January with 67.6 percent market share (up 0.3 percentage points), followed by Microsoft Sites with 18.3 percent (up 0.1 percentage points) and Yahoo Sites with 10.4 percent,” reported comScore in their January 2014 Search Engine Rankings.
A big part of that rise (over Yahoo as well) by Bing has been getting the user themselves directly involved with certain operations, like image content via a photo submission contest.
“It’s been 5 years since we launched Bing. To celebrate, we’re looking for amazing images from you! Submit your personal photo of a place you love for a chance to be showcased on Bing and win an Xbox One,” wrote Bing on its Facebook page.

Ten finalists for the competition will be announced on June 23 by Bing. Users can view fan submissions and share with friends throughout the event.
