    I'm guessing either nothing or $1.00.

    That would be my guess, but it is only a guess.

    I'd guess nothing. Large organizations like that are good at holding photo contests and having the winner get the "prize" of their photo being published - for free.

    The reason I've stopped entering most local photo contests is that they're really just bait for an organization to get free use of photos.

    Well to have your photo on a stamp is a pretty big deal

    In most cases, federal government policy is to pay something for reproduction rights of content like a photo (unless it's in public domain, of course). So probably $1. Of course, since this license is certainly non-exclusive, he can now may big bank selling large prints, phone covers, tote bags, etc.

    Or, he got paid mookoo bucks for an exclusive license. Maybe the USPS themselves demanded an exclusive license.

    Well it's your lucky day, for just over $22/sheet of 20 you can can get your own personal photo on a legal first class stamp. Create Custom Stamps & Mail | USPS Save even more when you order more than one sheet!

    Look up the Terms etc. for the contest and see if there was any prize, or if entering means entrants agreed to worldwide, non exclusive, blah blah blah use by the website/company.
