The search for the Australian Young Photographer of the Year and the Australian Adventurer of the Year are just two of the new categories in RovingEye’s 2008 Expose Your World photo competition.
The focus of this year’s expanded competition is travel with winners sharing more than $70,000 worth of prizes from major sponsors including Abercrombie & Kent, Tarraleah Lodge, Nikon, SanDisk, AsukaBook, Asus and Vibe hotels.
As well as a bigger prize pool, the competition organisers Rovingeye have extended the opportunities for photographers – both professional and amateur – to be recognised for their exceptional work.
Since winning the Expose Your World competition last year with his poignant Drought series, Melbourne-based Environmental scientist turned photographer Rodney Dekker has appeared on national television and currently has nine of his prints on exhibition in Old parliament House, Canberra, as part of the Beyond Reasonable Drought photography project.
