2011 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

The National Geographic Traveler Magazine yearly photo contest is certainly one of the most popular competitions you can enter. Last year, they had almost 11,000 entries. That's because the prizes are almost as dramatic as the entries. This year , the First Place winner will go on a 14 day cruise for two to the British and Irish Isles aboard the National Geographic Explorer. The Second Place prize is a 9 night hotel stay at Trident Hotels in India, including stays in Agra, Delhi, Jaipur, and Udaipur and Third Place will get you a two-and-a-half-day photo workshop at Santa Fe Workshops. So, dig out those photos you took on vacation and enter them into any of the four categories - Travel Portraits, Outdoor Scenes, Sense of Place and Spontaneous Moments - by July 11th.
If travel is not your thing, but flower photography is, then you'll want to think about entering this contest. There are specific requirements as to what you can enter, so you'll want to read the rules carefully and there's also an entry fee to submit your photos. Categories include The Beauty of Plants, Beautiful Gardens, Wildlife Havens, Breathing Spaces,Bountiful Earth, Trees Woods Forests,Fragile Landscapes,Greening the City, and 4 Seasons. If you become the International Photographer of the Year, you'll take home £5,000 plus a host of other prizes. There will be an exhibit for winning photos too. Enter by November 30th.
