National Geographic: 2007 Photo Contest
'Tis the season of contests! The venerable National Geographic Society is inviting photographers to share their vision of the world through their own photography. Entry submissions can be done online in any of these four categories: people, landscape, animals, or photo essay.
There are two types of contests:
English Language Competition:
The prize is a digital SLR camera kit and the winning photograph published in the pages of National Geographic magazine. Winners of the English language competition are automatically entered in the International Photography Contest.
International Photography Contest:
The First Place winner in each category will receive a trip to National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C and have their winning entry published in the pages of National Geographic magazine.
Before you send anything out, read the rules carefully...especially the one that says:
"By entering the Contest, all entrants grant an irrevocable perpetual non-exclusive license to Authorized Parties, to reproduce, distribute, display and create derivative works of the entries (along with a name credit) in connection with the Contest and promotion of the Contest, in any media now or hereafter known, including, but not limited to: Display at a potential exhibition of winners; publication of a book featuring select entries in the Contest; publication in National Geographic Magazine or online highlighting entries or winners of the Contest."
