Winners will score huge opportunities to see the world from behind a viewfinder, with a grand prize of an 8-day National Geographic Expedition to Alaska for two, second best taking home a 5-day photo workshop for one in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the third prize a 6-day cruise for two on a Maine windjammer schooner. There will be 7 merit winners this year, each granted some cool loot like gift cards to photography suppliers, magazine subscriptions, and framed art.
Time is running out since submissions end at lunch time on June 30th, so it's best to start diving into your iPhoto for your faves now. Don't worry if you don't think you have what it takes and just want to "ooh" and "ahh" over beautiful shots, the website exhibits all entries for perusal, and maybe some travel inspiration.
