Tourism Authority of Thailand is pleased to announce the second TATNews Photo Contest, now being held through its official media website TATNews.org. All photographers, tourists, travelers, media, and anyone with a camera are cordially invited to participate. The theme of this new contest is “THE MAGIC & MYSTERY OF AMAZING THAILAND.”
The aim of the contest is for you to show the world what Amazing Thailand looks like to you – through the lens of your camera – and to share your incredible Thailand experiences with like-minded souls everywhere. Plus, you get the chance to win cash awards totaling USD2000 as well as having your images of Amazing Thailand shared globally by the TAT.
Contestants need simply register an account on www.tatnews.organd submit entries according to the rules stated on the website. The submission period is now open and will close on 2 August 2013; so get your pictures organized and select your favorite shots. You won’t have to choose only one to submit however since you can enter as many images as you like, along with a caption in English for each photograph.
Three winners will be chosen. The 1st Place Winner will receive a cash prize of THB 30,000 (approximately $1,000 US), the First Runner-Up will receive THB 20,000 while the Second Runner-Up will receive THB 10,000 plus a Photo Contest Certificate for each.
Submissions will be judged by a team consisting of Thai media experts, editors, and photographers. The winners will be announced on TATNews.orgon 7 August 2013, and the three lucky winners will also be notified via email the next day, 8 August 2013.
So look through your Thailand photographs now, or better yet, grab your camera and head to your favorite Thailand destinations to do some serious shooting. We want your original photographs that are exciting and inspirational, that tell a story or share an experience – in short, images that will motivate viewers to visit this spot and turn their own cameras to this and similar subjects.
