Rybnik, Poland (PRWEB) September 22, 2009
Open Travel announces the first edition of its travel photography contest, where visitors to Opentravel.com - at least 18 years of age and planet Earth residents - will have the opportunity to upload and share their works with other traveling and photography aficionados.
While the core idea of photography is not about competing, but rather about capturing the infinitely diverse beauty of the world and the satisfaction that comes from unveiling this to others, Open Travel has prepared two fantastic cash prizes in the amount of $1000 and $500 for Best Travel Photo and People's Choice Best Travel Photo respectively.
As of September 21, 2009 participants are invited to upload unlimited photos taken during their voyages throughout the world, be it a weekend outing to the French countryside, a holiday in the Caribbean, a shopping spree at a souq in Morocco, or an African safari. Focus your cameras on just about anything you feel worthwhile.
Photo submissions will be accepted at http://opentravel.com/photo_contest until October 23, 2009. From the pool of all submitted photographs, a panel of experts will choose one that excels in terms of photographic quality and the extent to which it captures the essence of a travel experience, place or event. Additionally, a separate prize will be awarded for the photograph that is voted best by the users. Winning photos will be featured on http://www.opentravel.com
