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.
