Falklands Exposed!
The Falkland Islands launches an international photography competition

New York, NY December 10, 2009 -- The Falkland Islands Tourist Board invites visitors to the Falklands to send in their best snaps to a new online photography competition - Falklands Exposed. With top prizes up for grabs including cameras, photography vouchers, travel photography guides and photography magazine subscriptions, it’s open to anyone with a keen eye and traveler’s spirit, with three entry groups; amateur, youth and professional.

Photographers can submit images across six categories including the aptly named ‘Face from the Place’ where judges are looking for an outstanding shot of an islander and the ‘Wildlife’ category where entrants to the competition can showcase their shots of penguins and other island wildlife.

A dedicated website www.falklandislands.com/exposed has an easy-to-use upload system, with helpful tips from renowned travel photographer Steve Davey and inspiration from Islanders on where to find unusual places to take shots of the landscape or ideas for subjects and compositions.

Situated 400 miles off the south-eastern tip of South America, the Falklands are well known for the abundance of penguins which can be viewed at close proximity across the Islands but there are many other points of focus. Colourful buildings, diverse landscapes, ever changing light, and dramatic shipwrecks. With a rich heritage, interesting events and rugged terrain perfect for outdoor activities – there is plenty to photograph all year round.

Entries must be high quality, digital images taken in the Falklands in the last two years. So anyone that has visited the Islands as part of a cruise itinerary, visited friends or relatives, holidayed or been stationed there can join local residents in entering their snaps. The competition is open for entries until the end of March 2010 with winners announced in April 2010.
