Earthwatch, the international environmental charity, is offering anyone who has been on one of their expeditions the chance to take part in a UK Discovery project in 2005 by simply sending in their favourite photos.
Every year hundreds of committed members of the public join Earthwatch projects around the world and contribute vital man hours to real conservation work alongside dedicated scientists in the field.
The images taken by volunteers during their expeditions play a vital role in the organisation's communication with the general public as they effectively promote the idea of hands-on conservation.
Susie Duncan, Marketing Manager at Earthwatch said, 'This competition offers all past volunteers the chance to win a place in one of our fantastic UK based projects. We are looking for photos that capture the Earthwatch experience and the idea of proactive conservation. We are also interested in receiving images of species and habitats that convey the importance of protecting endangered animals and threatened species.'
'All photos must be in colour and should have been taken whilst on an Earthwatch expedition since 2001. Multiple entries can be made and pictures can be submitted as slides, digital images or conventional photos. To give you a little help we have put together a gallery of our favourite photos along with a photography guide that will help you get the best results from your camera. We wish everyone who enters the very best of luck!'
To enter, please submit your photos, slides or digital images along with a completed application form to: Earthwatch Photography Competition 2004, 267 Banbury Road, Oxford, OX2 7HT or email to email@example.com.
