'Tis the season
Two great photo competitions for travel photographers are in full swing right now, and their deadlines loometh, so get in while you can, and while budgets permit. A guy could go bankrupt entering these things.

WORLD IN FOCUS CONTEST 2007 –
The World In Focus Contest is a collaboration between National Geographic and Photo District News. NG sponsors the amateur wing of the contest, and frankly, provides WAY cooler prizes than the professional contest. Amatuers can look forward to some amazing trips, including 11 days in Artic Norway or 10 days in the Galapagos. Professionals get some new gear. The World In Focus Contest is very well publicized on this side of the pond, so the resulting PR is good.
