GTTP Digital Photo Competition
The objectives of the competition:
To show a special aspect of a student’s community to people who have never been there. The photo should make the viewer want to come visit. As the photographer, ask yourself, "If I didn't know this place, would my picture make me want to visit this place?" So it is not just a pretty place, or an interesting scene. It is a picture that suggests to the viewer that this would be a great place to visit.
What to photograph:
Examples: it could be a historic building; a natural feature, such as a lake or mountain; an event, such as a procession; a local specialty, such as food; an activity or sport; a person or a group of people.
How many photographs to submit for judging:
One per student. Deadline for entries is February 28, 2013.
Three winners in each country will each receive $100 and all three will be entered in the international competition. The first prize in the international competition is $600. Second prize is $400.
What equipment to use:
A digital camera, but there is no minimum requirement as to how many megapixels the camera is capable of. If a film camera is used, the film must be digitized before sending the image to be judged.
Maximum photo size is 4 MB. Be sure to use an image that is large enough to capture the details of your photo. You must send the photo as a separate JPEG file with a file name that includes your name as the photographer and your country.
GTTP ownership of your photos:
All photos that are submitted become the property of the GTTP, and if used in print or electronic media, the student photographer will be credited.
