Here's a competition for those among us who are Australian residents amd keen travel photographers.

The ‘My Favourite Travel Photo’ exhibition is a fundraising event that will showcase and auction 40 travel photos from members of the public. The photos will be selected by an expert panel of judges including Penny Stephens, photographer for The Age and Christian Pearson, lecturer in photography at CAE.

The exhibition will be held at Dante’s Upstairs Gallery, 150-156 Gertrude Street (on the corner of Napier Street) in Fitzroy from 5-9 September and the auction will be held on the opening night, Tuesday 5 September. All of the proceeds will be donated to charity.

The exhibition aims to raise $13 000, enough money to build two schools in southern Bangladesh, which would assist in educating over 600 children.

Travellerspoint will sponsor the major prize for best photo (a Canon EOS 350d). I would love to see some Travellerspoint members submitting their photos to this very worthy competition!

More details about the competition on their website at http://www.myfavouritetravelphoto.com/

Please let me know if you do get in so I can be sure to check your photo out when it is exhibited ;)

Great suggestion, Peter! I was only wondering, where did you get the information from that only Australian residents can submit pictures? I couldn't participate then, right ?

Cheers,

Steff

I checked it with them before posting this thread ;) I think you would be ok .. I think the main consideration was postage of the prize, though there was also some legal stuff. I'll ask for you. :)

Maybe all non-Australian residents could submit through you Peter? :)

It would be great to see some submissions. This is a very worthy cause too!

Why not this competition open to all Tp members? Any members can send their entries through Tp admin and their entries should be approved by Tp panels. this is for a charity.

It's for legal reasons. I have discussed it further with the organisers of this auction though and they are looking into it to see if there is any possibility to open it to people from other countries. I'll let you know what happens :) But for now, I'm afraid it is for Australian residents only.
