A photo of mine from Tibet (pictured at right) has been named one of 50 finalists in a photography contest jointly sponsored by National Geographic Traveler magazine and InterContinental Hotels & Resorts.
While I'm skeptical I'll win the grand prize trip to Australia, I'm just happy that my image was selected out of a pool of a gazillion great photos, which you can see on the contest's website.
The grand prize winner will spend 16 days on a National Geographic Expedition around Australia. The second place prize is a Sony SLR digital camera and a two night stay at any InterContinental Hotels & Resorts. The third prize winner will receive a National Geographic Deluxe Atlas and a two night stay at any InterContinental Hotels & Resorts.
The winners will be announced at the end of the month.
