Travel to the Land of the Thunder Dragon on assignment with pro wildlife photographer Jason Edwards
Ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a photographer on assignment with National Geographic? Here is your chance: World Nomads, National Geographic Channel, and JoJo’s Adventure Bhutan are teaming up to offer a scholarship competition in which a selected candidate will earn an all-expenses-paid trip to Bhutan.
To apply, candidates must shoot a series of photos (five max) that tell a story about a place he or she has visited. The lucky winner will spend a week in the mystical Kingdom of Bhutan photographing endangered wildlife, such as the White Bellied heron and Black Necked crane, with renowned photographer Jason Edwards. Bhutan, known for its pristine ecology and forests, is home to endangered flora and fauna. In order to document these wonders, the winner will receive AU$2,000 worth of Pentax photographic equipment of his or her choice. The trip will also include exposure to Bhutan’s historic architecture and traditional culture, all while the winner benefits from Edwards’ invaluable mentoring. Best of all, the budding photographer’s finest work from the assignment will appear on the National Geographic Channel’s website, making his or her art accessible to thousands.
Applications will be accepted through October 17, 2010 by World Nomads. Candidates must be at least 18 years of age and non-professional photographers. The trip runs from December 5th to December 12th, 2010.
