The People & Planet International Photography Competition is open to amateur and professional photographers worldwide and will offer the opportunity to 53 participants to have their photos published in the 2012 People & Planet: Social Justice & Environment Diary & Calendar and achieve international recognition.
Photos submited to this competition should transmit "good news" stories about social-justice or the environment, and be at least at 300 dpi resolution, supplied in JPEG format, with a maximum file size of 10 MB.
Although minimal photoshop-ing may be acceptable, its obvious use will usually lead to exclusion of the photo.
Entrants may submit up to 4 photos (each image in a separate e-mail). All submitted photos must be accompanied by 3-5 sentences describing the image and the social-justice or environment issues which are raised by it. Do not submit images that were submitted to this competition in previous years.
The participation in the People & Planet International Photography Competition is free.
Entrants may e-mail their entries to firstname.lastname@example.org before 31 May 2011. Read the rules of entry carefully.
Winners will be selected by the competition judges Michael Cebon (People & Planet Editor) and Rodney Dekker (Australian Photographer).
A 1st Prize in the value A$1,300 and a 2nd Prize in the value of A$350, both in cash, will be awared to the two best photos. The author of the photo to be used on the cover of the People & Planet Diary & Calendar 2012 will receive the Diary Cover Prize: A$350 cash.
All 53 winners will receive a free copy of the 2012 People & Planet Diary.
