Travel Photography Contest...

Hot of the press: I found this over at Gadling

Travel Photography Contest

Let’s Go, a travel guide company, is sponsoring their first ever travel photography contest. They are looking for submissions to use as cover art for their 2008 series of updated travel books.

Books that they are planning on updating include Europe, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, France, Britain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Spain & Portugal, London, Amsterdam, and USA.

Submission guidelines - send photo with your name, contact details, location and date of photo and a signed copy of their Terms and Conditions to photo contest@let’s go.com. Deadline is April 15, 2007.

If your photograph is selected for a cover, then you will receive a copy of the book.

Good deal. Do you plan to enter this, or the ones below (previous post)?

So they get an image which they would normally pay a professional a substantial sum to provide, and all it costs them is a copy of the book? As travel writer just finding his feet, this depresses me no end.

Hi, Alicia and johnnyd4md,

I'm of two minds on this one. Yes, it would be nice to see your photo on the cover of a travel book. But there is no indication of any credit given and no moneterary compensation. Not a good deal for any professional writer.

But still, it would be nice to say that your photography is on the cover of a travel book....

Alicia, I'm not much of a contest person so won't be entering either of these. But thought I'd throw them out there for anyone who might be interested...

Cheers, Liz
