Name Your Dream Assignment: Here’s $50,000!

Name Your Dream Assignment

Microsoft and Lenovo are giving away $50,000 cash money as grand prize for the “Name Your Dream Assignment” photo contest. And you don’t even have to take a picture. Yet.

All you need to do is dream up your photo assignment, an idea. Put this down in writing and submit it to them. Examples of those ideas are posted on their website, in case you need some guidance. From now until April 3, participants will vote on these photo ideas and the top entries will be evaluated by a panel of judges who will choose the final winners.

Remember: your idea – your dream assignment – should fit within the $50,000 budget allocated. Yes, you will be spending the 50-grand to shoot your assignment, not to pay your mortgage. (Unless you spend less than 50K, but that’s another story…)

But you get to keep the digital camcorder and the Lenovo ThinkPad W700ds with Microsoft Windows Vista that you take on the journey. Two runners-up will also receive the same ThinkPad and Microsoft OS. Contest is open to US residents only. Photographers of all levels are welcome.
