One lucky winner chosen by the Nature India editorial and design team will be featured on Nature India. The winning entry stands a chance of being on the cover of one of our forthcoming print publications. The winner and two runners-up will receive a copy of the Nature India Special Annual volume and a bag of goodies from the Nature Publishing Group.
The theme for our inaugural photo competition is: Science & technology in India.
The contest is open to everyone – any nationality, any age, any profession. The only keywords for the subject of the picture are: ‘India’ and ‘science’. You could use whatever camera you wish to – even your cell phone – as long as the photograph you send us is unedited, original and in a digital format. Photographs will be judged for novelty, creativity and quality.
Please send a single entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, telephone number and address, both e-mail and postal. Please mention “Nature India Photo Contest” in the subject line of your email. The photograph must be accompanied by a brief caption (not exceeding 100 words) explaining the subject of the picture along with the date, time and place it was taken. The last date for submissions is August 15, 2014. If you are on social media, please use the hashtag #NatureIndphoto to spread the word around about the contest.
Selfies are welcome as are pictures of sculptures, statues, paintings, and other works of art. Just make sure you are not violating any copyrights. Also, no obscene, provocative, defamatory, sexually explicit, or other inappropriate content please.
So, get set and go clickety-click!
