Gap Adventures, together with WorldNomads.com and the National Geographic Channel, are offering one lucky budding travel photographer the trip of a lifetime. The WorldNomads.com Travel Photography Scholarship is an amazing opportunity to join an on-assignment National Geographic photographer in Antarctica for two weeks. The winner will travel aboard the Gap Adventures’ M/S Expedition.
The assignment is to photograph the world’s most remote wilderness exploring the Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. The scholarship recipient’s best photos will be published on the National Geographic Channel’s website where they will be viewed by thousands of travelers worldwide, offering a chance to work with one of the most revered exploration organizations in the world.
The scholarship winner will be flown from their country of residence to Ushuaia, Argentina where they will board the M/S Expedition on an 11 day assignment in Antarctica from November 22 till December 2, 2009. On the expedition, the winner will work alongside Jason Edwards photographing some of the planet’s most impressive wildlife including Minke & Humpback Whales, Leopard Seals, Penguins, Albatross and dramatic iceberg landscapes. They will gain invaluable mentoring and hands-on experience in everything from shot set up, technique and composition through to insights into Jason’s many years of experience as an award-winning photographer.
