Verge magazine is inviting Canadian and International travel photographers to enter its 2014 “Travel with Purpose” Photo Challenge, offering CAD $1000 for the best in show award.
The challenge? Show a snippet of that life-changing journey, and tell the world why it mattered. Give a picture of how you are making a difference—or show the people, places and experiences that are making a difference to you.
Competition categories include:
- People – Photographs that tell a story about the people you’ve met on your travels, the social interactions, the individuals, their lives and livelihoods and special moments you’ve experienced that make a community unique.
- Places – Incredible landscapes, dark alleyways, crowded marketplaces, dusty plains, chaotic urban scenes, stunning wilderness vistas – all the strange and special places you’ve discovered on your travels.
- Projects and issues – Photographs you’ve taken that step beyond the pictorial to tell a clear story about what you’ve discovered on your travels. Meaningful travel involves learning about people and cultures around the world, their traditions, ideas and issues they face.
Please consider that all submissions must relate to meaningful travel and must be previously unpublished.
