Been There, Dunn That Photography Competition

Following the smashing success of last fall’s social media photography competition, we’re excited to announce that we’re back at it again, bringing you our Been There, Dunn That photography competition.

This year we’ve teamed up with Nomad Tanzania, Coastal Aviation and AETHER Apparel to bring you some unbelievable prizes.

So how do you win one of these incredible prizes? It’s easy. We’re looking for your favorite photos from your travels. Not a professional photographer? Even better. We’re not necessarily looking for the “best” shot technically but are after ones that tell a story and evoke emotion. The Been There, Dunn That competition is about showing off where you’ve been and what you’ve done. In this case, bragging a little is a good thing. So, whether you captured a beautiful portrait of a monk in Thailand or snapped fiery orange lava erupting from a volcano Costa Rica, we want to see it. There are no restrictions to the type of travel photographs you can submit, as long as they’re meaningful to you.

Want a better idea of the type of photos that we’re looking for? This blog showcasing last year’s favorites is a helpful guide.

Winners will be chosen by a panel of Scott Dunn judges once the competition closes on December 10th, 2018. Winners will be announced through our social media channels on Friday, December 14th.
