Here’s another photo contest to keep in mind. This one is pretty big, it’s all for a good cause, and it’s sponsored by the Prince of Wales, HRH Prince Charles. The top prize isn’t bad either.

The competition is part of the Sony World Photography Awards, a huge event that will take place next April in Cannes, France. The Prince’s Rainforest Project was established by Prince Charles to promote a greater understanding of the role that rainforests play in the Earth’s eco-system. To further that cause, the photo competition was set up.

The competition is open to pros (first prize is a $20,000 and a grant to photograph rainforest regions of the earth). There is also an amateur category. You can go here to read more about the program.–David Schonauer
