The Perceptive Travel Remarkable Photo Contest

THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED! See who came out on top: Remarkable Photo Contest Winners

Have you taken a truly remarkable travel photo? Something unique, mesmerizing, striking, or unusual?

Perceptive Travel runs stories that go beyond the norm, that look at places and people in a different way than the predictable travel magazines on your local newsstand. In that same spirit, we want to see photos that will make the people go "Wow!" Don't send us an image we've already seen a hundred times in magazines--send something remarkable. If your great travel shot stands out from the pack, you could score.


compudaypack First prize - The CompuDaypack from LowePro. This innovative pack holds an SLR camera and extra lenses in the padded bottom compartment, a laptop and other accessories in the padded top part. Nobody knows you're carrying a few grand in equipment through the souks of Fez. An $80 value!

Second prize - A $50 gift certificate to your local Amazon or Fishpond division. (Or the equivalent if neither serves your country.)

Third prize - A Perceptive Travel t-shirt, sweatshirt, or baseball jersey.

Honorable mentions - a copy of the brand new book Traveler's Tool Kit: Mexico and Central America

We are a lawyer-free publication, so the rules are short and sweet:

1) You must send a digital photo meeting the following requirements by May 30, 2008: A photo in jpeg format, no more than 200 d.p.i. and a maximum of 600 pixels wide or tall. (If you can't figure out how to reduce your photos, don't enter.) As well as a caption, include your name, physical address, and phone number in the e-mail. Send it to remarkable { at}

2) The photo can be from anywhere in the world, but must have at least some tenuous connection to travel.

3) Only two entries allowed per person. Send your best shots!

4) Photo rights are not being purchased, but by entering the contest winners agree to have their photo posted on without additional compensation (except the prime bragging rights).

5) Finalists will be chosen by the Perceptive Travel staff and the actual winners will be chosen from the finalists by a panel of professional photographers, to be announced along with the winners.

6) Winners will be notified by June July 15, 2008 and prizes will ship by June July 30. (Sorry--we hit some delays in the process and had to push it back a month.)

7) Void where prohibited. Employees occupying any floor of the massive Perceptive Travel world headquarters are not eligible to enter.  

LowePro and Menasha Ridge Press are supplying prizes, but the companies are otherwise not affiliated with the contest. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries received (but they're liable to be pretty darn good.) If you have any questions, send them to remarkable { at}
