Ethiopia was an absolute thrill to photograph this year. It’s a poor country and yet everyone there seems so full of joy, the smiles are contagious. The annual Timkat festival in Lalibela turned out to be one of the most energetic events I’ve ever attended. And I managed to get right into the middle.
When Jon Miller (The Rest of Everest) found out about a contest to win a 30-day tour to Antarctica, he told me “YOU’VE GOT TO ENTER!” – I had a look and was pretty quickly convinced that I want to do that.
So here I am, I’ve entered the contest and if I manage to get enough votes from you, there’s a chance to win and bring you some great photography, videos and podcast episodes from the tour.
And if you enter yourself (yes, you can enter too!), please send me a link, so I can add them to a post here on the site to send people your way too.
After the last contest that (briefly) got one of my pictures into the Paris Louvre, here’s the next one. This time it’s about the trip of a lifetime: Antarctica. It’s so high on my list, it’s almost painful. And here’s a potential opportunity that has just opened up. The cruise is in 2017 and one person will win it.
And of course if I’m lucky enough to go, I’ll pack you into my suitcase and take you with me. In the form of audio and video and photography.
You can help me get in with your vote (Facebook account required)
Oh, and you can come in person too, the contest is open to everybody. What are you waiting for?
