For the past two years, The Independent has teamed up with the travel magazine Wanderlust, to offer prizes of high-quality camera equipment and a photographic commission from The Independent. Last year, the standard of entries was outstanding. This year, the prizes are even better: we have brought in one of the best names in photography, Canon.
If you've captured a strong image from somewhere in the world, it could qualify for one of three categories: Urban Life, Rural Life and Wild Life.
The top 30 shortlisted entries will be displayed at Destinations '99, the travel exhibition to be held at Earl's Court from 18-21 February next year.
Canon will present the overall winner with an EOS5 SLR with 28-1351S lens - recommended retail price a total of pounds 1,200 - while Bellingham will provide a photo rucksack and Ventile vest (RRP pounds 280). The Independent will offer the winner a UK-based photo commission.
The two winners of the other categories will each receive an EOS IX with 24-85mm lens (RRP pounds 600) plus a Billingham Photo Original Hadley bag. (RRP pounds 87.50). Three runners-up will win a Canon Sure Shot 60 Zoom Kit worth pounds 90, and a Billingham Small Hadley camera bag (RRP pounds 75).
