It's time for the GoAbroad Travel Promos! Every month on the GoAbroad Blog, we share resources and information about all the great travel promotions, giveaways and contests occurring in the travel and international education fields. This month's selections are:
1. National Geographic Photo Contest
If you're an aspiring travel photographer, this contest is not one to miss out on! Especially as you have the chance to win a Nikon D6oo camera! National Geographic is inviting contest entrants to submit one (1) photo and an "accompanying paragraph no greater than 100 words in length about someone or something that's meaningful to you and you think would be interesting to others-- be it about a loved one, or your hometown, or a personal passion."
Five (5) first place winners will then be selected by judges to be sent their very own Nikon D600c camera to shoot their full story - in which one person will then win the chance to participate in a National Geographic Expedition to the Galápagos Islands. Need we say more? Get your photos in today!
Deadline: Contest entry period ends on November 25, 2012 at 11:59:59PM EST
