Verge Magazine’s 2012 Travel Photo Challenge

Verge Magazine, North America’s premier magazine for exploring opportunities to study, work and volunteer abroad, is inviting photographers worldwide to enter the magazine’s latest photo challenge. Verge Magazine’s 2012 Travel Photo Challenge is open for travel photography in three different categories.

Verge wants to see through your lens and is after the fun times, the hard times, the once-in-a-lifetimes of your travels.

We invite you to enter for a chance to win a grand prize of $1,000 and lots of other goodies!

Show a Snippet of Your Life-changing Journey!

Verge Magazine is accepting submissions in the following categories:

  1. 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.
  2. Places
    Show us the 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.
  3. Projects and issues
    Meaningful travel involves learning about people and cultures around the world, their traditions, ideas and issues they face. Show us the photographs you’ve taken that step beyond the pictorial to tell a clear story about what you’ve discovered on your travels.

All photographers (Canadian residents and international Verge Magazine subscribers) are eligible to enter and each person may submit 5 photos per category.

And here is the complete list of available prizes:

  • $1000 grand prize
  • Travellers’ Choice Award: $250 in vouchers to be used towards travel booked at any Travel CUTS location
  • Category Winners: Travel prize packs, including guidebooks, t-shirts, magazine subscriptions
