Lowepro and Polar Bear International Sponsor the "My Favorite Things" Photo Contest
The "My Favorite Things" photography contest is open both professionals and amateurs and has a nice simple theme. They're looking for pictures of nature, landscape, wildlife, culture or conservation.
You can enter at the official "My Favorite Things" website anytime before August 31st. Simply visit the site, click the entry form and upload as many as three pictures.
What may be the coolest thing about the contest is the grand prize. Winning photography equipment is great - and the grand prize winner will get some of that - the big prize is a Tundra Buggy trip for two. You'll spend a week in Manitoba, Canada observing and photographing polar bears in their natural habitat.
Runners up will receive prizes like a Flip Mino HD camera, backpacks and camera pouches, and Aperture 3.0 software. Among the judges for the contest are three representatives from LowePro, Robert Buchanan, the CEO of Polar Bears International, and Christopher Robinson of Outdoor Photography Magazine.
