The People & Planet International Photography Competition is a new competition open to photographers anywhere in the world. The aim is to select 55 photos to be published in the 2011 People & Planet: Social Justice & Environment Diary & Calendar, which raises money for Australian non-profit organisations.

The People & Planet International Photo Competition is looking for 55 images of people, places or things which tell a story about a social-justice or environment issue. Photos of almost any genre will be accepted, including portraits, landscapes, animals, objects, or any combination of these.

With 55 spots up for grabs, it’s a good chance to have your photos published and achieve international fame!
