Today’s post is for all you wildlife photographers out there. Fancy getting your hands on US$10,000? If you do then read on.
Lynx Editions, the publishers of the fabulous Handbook of the Birds of the World, has announced the first HBW World Bird Photo Contest. They’re certainly aiming high: to become the “most important bird photography competition at the world level”.
The contest is aimed at promoting the discovery, understanding and conservation of the world’s birds whilst encouraging innovation and maintaining excellence in bird photography.
There will be three winners, ten honourable mentions and four special prizes.
Submission is open until March 26 with the winners announced in May. See their website for ules and submission http://www.hbwcontest.com/
