Now, here's something to ponder on this glorious day, Sabado de Gloria -- an international photo contest sponsored by InterContinental Hotels & Resorts.

The grand prize? A National Geographic Expedition to Australia for you and your companion in which a leading expert will act as your personal guide as you venture to an amazing all expenses-paid expedition around Australia!

You will have the opportunity to observe wildlife in their natural habitat on Kangaroo Island, hike the mountains of Tasmania, and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef. The trip also includes a stay at the luxurious InterContinental Sydney and an exclusive tour of the city with a National Geographic photojournalist.

The mechanics of this photo contest is quite simple: Submit one color photograph that best captures the sense of a travel destination anywhere in the world. The photograph can be of any subject of your choice -- nature, architecture, cityscape, people, culture, or anything as long as it is compelling enough to entice a viewer to see or experience it.

he contest opened on March 21st and will close on July 1st of this year. For further information about this contest, rules and regulations, and prizes, visit InterContinental Insights Photo Contest.

Good luck!

Yes, Kyels, this contest is in association with National Geographic. I think this organization gets a substantial discount from this international hotel chain, that's why.

I had already submitted an entry, Rhoda. I hope -- since mine included some people -- the contest officials will not have to demand a models' release forms from those people who appeared prominently on my entry.

This is not only for us photo nuts back home, BW. If I'm not mistaken, anyone from anywhere may join. So, better review your shots from travels past and submit an entry. Malay mo bigla kang mag-expedition sa Australia, no?

That's right, Sidney! And with my track record, I'd probably get the third prize -- a National Geographic booklet. Hahaha!

Hi Lino!

Don't mind my response to Sidney's comment; I was kidding.

Actually, bagging even the third prize is prestigious enough!

Sali na!
