PLANETÂ° Magazine, a leading global culture lifestyle magazine blending the latest in contemporary art, music and fashion is pleased to announce our 1st annual Global Travel Photo Contest, with the ultimate Grand Prize: A round-the-world ticket, open for one year (or $1000 cash prize), with a 10-page portfolio assignment covering your trip to be published upon your return.
Since our launch in 2001, PLANETÂ° has become known for its outstanding photography, shot by many of today’s top photographic talents, from dynamic up-and-comers to great masters and enduring legends.
PLANET’s photo contest offers photographers from around the world a unique opportunity to share their vision of travel, life, people, and sub-culture with our top editors and a distinguished panel of judges culled from the highest levels of New York’s international photography community.
Three runner-ups will each receive a liveBooks portfolio website (basic web package or $800 toward any liveBooks website package or upgrade.) and a 6-page portfolio of their work published in PLANET in 2009.
Ten finalists will have their work appear in our Spring 2009 Journeys issue, in a special contest portfolio, and each will receive a free photo-related book from powerHouse books.
The contest theme is “Many Worlds, One Planet”, and we’d like to ask photographers to not only submit images defining a particular place but also ones that show the people, cultures, and sub-cultures of the places they document; a powerful portrait or image of a gathering can equally reveal the depth and mystery of the travel experience.
To enter, please visit our Global Travel Photo Contest link and follow the guidelines for submissions:
Please note: Each entry must contain one image. Photographers may submit multiple entries. There is a $15 fee per entry to cover administering the contest, and the deadline for submissions is October 20th, 2008.
Thank you for your interest in PLANETÂ° Magazine, and we look forward to seeing what the world looks like through your eyes.
