There’s still time for a chance to win a dream assignment to the Outback of Australia in the company of renowned wildlife on-assignment National Geographic photographer Jason Edwards. The photo contest is open to students 18 years old or older and currently enrolled and actively studying at a recognised educational tertiary institution and speak and write fluent English.

Applications close on June 30 for this chance of a lifetime assignment jointly hosted by the National Geographic and travel insurance provider World Nomads Pty Ltd of Sydney.

The brief is to photograph the Arid Lands Festival and The Great Hughenden Endurance Camel Race – a 160 km camel endurance race run in the stunningly beautiful area of Porcupine Gorge in Outback Queensland, Australia.

If you win this scholarship, your top photos will be published on the National Geographic. You wil also be given an Olympus E3 DSLR with a 14-54mm f2.8-3.5 Standard Wide Zoom Lens plus a new Lenovo Ideapad Y-510 laptop computer to store your photos and keep your journal.

And please bring your current driver’s license; you’ll be driving a lot in the Outback.
