Picturing our Planet Photo Challenge 2014

Verge Magazine – Picturing our Planet Photo Challenge 2014

We know that you are travellers and that you believe in the concept of travel with purpose. You’ve told us that the time you spent volunteering, working, or learning abroad was life-changing. Now we want to see it through your lens—the fun times, the hard times, the once-in-a-lifetimes.

The challenge? Help us see the world differently.

Show us a snippet of that life-changing journey, and tell us why it mattered. Give us a picture of how you are making a difference—or show us the people, places and experiences that are making a difference to you.

Categories for submissions are:

1. People

Photographs that tell a story about the people you’ve met on your travels, the social interactions, the individuals, their lives and livelihoods and special moments you’ve experienced that make a community unique.

2. Places

Show us the incredible landscapes, dark alleyways, crowded marketplaces, dusty plains, chaotic urban scenes, stunning wilderness vistas – all the strange and special places you’ve discovered on your travels.

3. Projects and issues

Meaningful travel involves learning about people and cultures around the world, their traditions, ideas and issues they face. Show us the photographs you’ve taken that step beyond the pictorial to tell a clear story about what you’ve discovered on your travels.

Tell us your story; change our perspective.
