Black’s Epic Adventures Photo Contest
I saw this contest over at On The Luce, and thought I’d throw my hat in the ring. A chance for free travel should never be ignored. 😉
Outdoor gear provider, Black’s Epic Adventures Photo Contest invites amateur photographers and bloggers to submit outdoor and nature photos that reflect the themes of wild, fast, panoramic and epic.
The prize? A chance to win £2000 to spend on one of Explore’s epic adventures around the world, whether it be cycling through French vineyards, traversing mysterious Azerbaijan or lounging on the beach in Martinique.
WILD: Lion in the Serengeti
Spanning 30,000 square kilometres across Tanzania and Kenya, there’s nowhere on earth quite like the Serengeti. Capturing this majestic male lion, sniffing the air and surveying the landscape, was a definite highlight.
PANORAMIC: Jordan’s Wadi Rum
The Valley of the Moon is an appropriate alternative name for Wadi Rum. The scenery, sands and rocks of this Jordanian valley are so remote and exotic, that it feels almost alien.
EPIC: A Bali Sunset
The sunsets of this Indonesian island are so picturesque and stunning that it wouldn’t surprise me if you confused this photo for art. I still marvel at the captures I was able to make off our apartment’s balcony.
FAST: Iguazu’s Rushing Waters
This was the category that I found the most difficult to fulfil. While we were lucky enough to see and photograph a cheetah in the wild, it wasn’t doing much but relaxing under a tree. So much for land’s fastest animal! 😉
I finally settled on the rushing waters of Argentina’s Iguazu Falls. At the Garganta del Diablo’s U-shaped chasm, 14 different falls plunge more than 350 feet. The mist from the force of all this rushing water can reach up to 490 feet!
Enter the competition by creating a blog post with photos corresponding to the above categories, and then tweet the link to @Blacks_Online using the hashtag #epicadventures. And if you don’t have a blog, don’t worry, you can still enter the contest by visiting Black’s Facebook page.
Now this isn’t required to enter the contest, but I’m going to tag a few travel bloggers to enter…mostly because I’m curious about what you’ll come up with. But hurry! The contest ends on May 5th at midnight.
Good luck everybody!!
