       Amateur and professional photographers from around the world are invited to enter the 2009 ‘Asia Without
       Borders’ Photography Competition, the first online photography contest organised by the award-winning
       ASIAN Geographic Magazine.

       “We are looking for extraordinary photographs from both amateur and professional photographers that
       capture the striking images of Asia’s land, people, architecture or wildlife,” explains ASIAN Geographic’s
       Business Development Director, Leslie Quek.

        Entries will be judged over three rounds announcing thereafter, one winner and one runner up in each of
       the four categories. In addition, an overall grand prize award will be up for grabs. Over S$20,000 worth of
       prizes await the victors of ASIAN Geographic’s first online-delivered international photo contest.

        Eligible adult participants may enter the contest by submitting up to 15 photos in any or all of the three
       open categories: Faces of The Earth, Faces of Asia and Faces of The Wild. There is also a Young
       Photographer’s category – Faces of Freedom – for 21-year-olds and below. Entries should be made online
       at: http://www.awbphotocontest.com

        The closing date for entries is 30 September 2009 at 23:59 hours, Singapore time (GMT +8)

        A selection of the best entries will be exhibited at a public show in Singapore where the final shortlist of 20
       images will be judged by a panel of professional photographers from around Asia.

       All winning and runners up images will also be published in the December Photo Annual Edition of the
       ASIAN Geographic Magazine.

        The grand prize winner will receive a Canon EOS 5D Mk II, a Jet Airways ticket from Singapore to Delhi
       and a Lowepro equipment. Each category winner will receive a Canon EOS 50D camera, a Jet Airways
       return ticket from Singapore to Delhi and Lowepro equipment. Each runner up will also receive Lowepro
       equipment.
