2009 Travel with Purpose: Photo of the Year Competition

Have you recently been abroad? Volunteered internationally? Did you capture your trip with a camera? The 3rd Annual Verge Magazine Contest is seeking travellers and their photos to show their life-changing journeys. It does not matter what you were doing abroad-volunteering, working, studying or just spending time overseas- as long as contestants are able to submit a photo and explain why the experience mattered to them.

Each contestant can submit up to four photos under the following three categories: environments, lives and livelihoods and photojournalism. Along with the grand prize of $1000, all the shortlisted entries will be exhibited at the 2009 Travel with Purpose Photo Exhibition taking place this fall at the Go Abroad Fairs in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal.

Deadline for all entries is July 1st 2009, 6PM (EST). For more information and contest rules, please visit www.vergemagazine.org/photocontest
