You will begin your photographic journey in the ancient capital of the Inca Empire - Cusco - where you will explore the rich history and culture of the Andean Mountain landscapes with Explorandes. From there you will travel into the heart of the Amazon basin to Madre de Dios, where you will explore one of the planet's top biodiversity hotspots.

During your Rainforest Expeditions trip, you will find out firsthand what life is like in the field for a travel photographer while capturing the rainforest wildlife and the conservation projects that WWF Peru supports to protect the biodiverse ecosystems and the livelihoods of the indigenous communities who call the Amazon forest home.

What you could win

For the winning photographer, the prize includes the following:

  • A 12-day bespoke trip to the Amazon with WWF Peru, Rainforest Expeditions and Explorandes
  • Round-trip airfare from your country of residence to Cusco, Peru where you will meet your mentor and a small film crew and then head off to Madre de Dios to begin your assignment
  • A 12-day professional mentorship from Jason Edwards
  • Travel insurance for the duration of the trip from World Nomads

The 4 runners’ up will receive:

A FREE 45-min portfolio review from Jason Edwards (valued at $800 AUD)

The 25 shortlisted photographers will receive:

The option of a 45-min paid portfolio review with Jason Edwards (special rate of $400 AUD)

What you'll be doing

In Peru, you'll get to experience what it's like to be on-assignment with a National Geographic photographer!

The Assignment

On the trip you will work alongside Jason Edwards photographing the people, wildlife and landscapes of the Amazon at various times of the day and night.

You will gain invaluable mentoring and hands-on experience in everything from shot set up, technique and composition through to insights into his many years of diverse experience as an award-winning photographer.

Your assignment will involve observing and assisting Jason as well as undertaking your own photographic work. This will involve long days, early mornings and late nights working!

Most of all, you'll be experiencing what it's like to be a photographer on-assignment with a National Geographic photographer!

Your Brief

You will work through a specific shot list of 20 photos that will be commissioned by the scholarship partners as part of your assignment.

You will keep a daily journal about your time on the trip and upload this to a travel journal (minimum 200 words per day), including pictures you've taken.

On your return you will work with Jason Edwards through the editorial process to shortlist your top photographs and colour balance to achieve professional looking shots.

Am I considered a professional photographer?

Remember this is a once in a lifetime learning opportunity, not a junket for professional photographers.

We appreciate that the photography industry is difficult to break into and there are a lucky few who can count themselves as professional full time photographers.

This scholarship is very much about the mentorship opportunity, and the judging panel will be selecting the person who they feel will most benefit from the learning opportunity. So, if you currently make more than 25% of your income from photography activities, you are not eligible.

You will be asked to outline your experience to date in the submission process, and it will be the judging panel who decides who is most suitable based on their photos and written component.

What our judging panel will be looking for

This is your chance to showcase your photography talents and unique perspective. The aim of the scholarship is the give the winner a foot in the door to the travel photography industry, so you’ll need to convince us that you are the best person to send.

Your photo essay should showcase your:
- originality
- ability to convey a story through photos (and their captions)
- excellent technique

*Note: Should your entry reach the final round of judging you will be asked to supply the RAW file of each photo for comparison with your submission (these may also be published online).

About your essay

Your written essay will have significant weighting in the judging process, so think carefully about why you should be chosen.

Tell us about yourself, your passions, why you love photography, what drives you to take a better shot, where you would like to go with your photography etc. Help us form a picture in our mind of you as a person with your text.

Here is how you apply

To apply, submit your photo essay and tell us about yourself and what winning this scholarship would mean to you.

To apply, submit your photo essay and tell us about yourself and what winning this scholarship would mean to you.

If your photos (with captions and essay) are not ready, we suggest you come back later to complete this entry.

Your images must tell a story about a place you have visited. 'Place' may be anywhere; somewhere in your own community or much further away. Each of the 5 shots must have accompanying caption text (1-2 sentences) to help contextualise the shot.

2. Complete the application form.

3. Upload your photos.

To Flickr:

If you choose, you can upload your photos as a Flickr set. Your application photos need to be the only 5 photos in the particular Flickr set.

  • Emma Hopkirk said

    I've only just started photography with a compact system camera. Are we able to submit images taken on point and shoot auto cameras or do we need to send in images that were manually exposed? Thanks!

    Hi Emma, we're not expecting you to have expensive or fancy camera equipment. Submit what you think works best. It's all about the image!

  • stacy said

    Just entered, Hope I win..would make my year so amazing!

  • Spencer said

    I have photos from a recent trip I'd like to use, but I wasn't shooting in RAW at the time; are those images still eligible? I do have the unedited originals, just in JPG format.

    Hi Spencer, that's fine. If your photos are in JPG format just make sure they are at the highest resolution possible and that you keep the original files you captured separate to what you might submit if you treat them on the computer.

  • Em said

    How recently should the photos of our place have been taken, and is there a word count for the essay?

    Em, you can submit photos you have taken in the past. However, we do encourage you to submit recent photos so that we are able to judge your current skills as a photographer. Your essay should be no longer than 1200 characters.

  • smilsa said

    Gauuu!! que increíble oportunidad, es todo acerca de la imagen!! la verdad no se nada de formatos y esas cosas pero se puede aprender, a mi lo que siempre me ha gustado es captar el significado de cada momento!!! y mi única herramienta es una camarita pequeña, pero es mi compañera de todos mis viajes!!!

  • Katerina said

    Hellooo... I am not that familiar with the term raw file.. Well, what if our camera doesn't support a raw? Then can we enter the scolarship?

    Hi Katerina, a raw image format is supported by many cameras. You may want to search "List of cameras supporting a raw format" to see if your camera supports this format. A raw image is basically an unprocessed file, also known as a digital negative. We do accept JPEG images as well. If you choose to submit JPEG files make sure you keep a copy of the original file from the camera before you process or treat your images. All the best!

  • Kit said

    Quick question, what do you mean by a "journal screen name"? Thanks

    Hi Kit. Your screen name can be your name or an alias. The journal name is the name of your World Nomads journal. What you title your journal is up to you, it can be related to you personally or about your scholarship entry. It has no bearing on the judging process.

  • Ann said

    Hi, can you tell us a bit more about colour calibration? The YouTube link regarding that topic on the FAQ page goes to Jason Edwards talking about Saturation and Contrast instead. Cheers.

    Hi Ann, you'll need to ensure your monitor's colour space is calibrated to RGB (Adobe RGB 98 colour). Many monitors are set to SRGB, which results in a saturated image. Jason grades your images on his computer which is calibrated to a 'true' colour space, so making this change will ensure he is seeing the same image as you are. Hope this answers your question. If you still need clarification please email us at

  • Anna Mygind said

    Hello! I'm very excited for this competition. Is it of vital importance that the photos come from the same place (geographically), or can this detail be overlooked if the pictures have a common thread? Cheers!

    Anna, your photos must represent one place (geographically) that you have visited. If you have a look at our past winners you'll notice their 'place' is very specific. Have another read of our FAQs page if you have any concerns about your entry - especially question number 6. All the best!

  • Sara said


    I've had the recent misfortune of losing many many photos, and the only version I have of the photographs I'd like to submit is their downloaded Facebook one - hence, no RAW, no original file. Can I still apply with these photographs or does that count me out straight away?

    Thank you!

    Hi Sara, an untouched JPEG file would suffice - but only if it was not processed.

  • Ana Rita said

    Hello World Nomads team,

    One question, after I submit the photos I realize that they should all be from a specific place so if I posted photos of different places on a coast of a country I will be out right away?

    Thank you.

    Hi Ana,
    Not necessarily. Your place can be a country, but what is more important is that the pictures of that place reveal a particular story. Remember, story is king! But it is also important that you meet the brief. Have a read of my response to Anna above for more info.

  • Hunor said

    Hi World Nomads,
    This is a great scholarship! I'm wiry excited!
    I have a question: I'm from Hungary and I'm currently traveling. I'm in New Zealand now, and next year april I'm gonna be possibly in Australia. For the winner you provide round-trip airfare from the country of residence. Is it possible to change?
    Thank you.

    Hi Hunor, we'll be providing return tickets from wherever you are in the world. However, you need to make sure you're available between April 6 - April 19, as the assignment dates are not flexible. Safe travels and all the best!

    Hi Guys,

    It's fantastic to see everyone so excited about the Scholarship as I am too! I'm madly trying to pack for an assignment in Antarctica this weekend so keep the entries coming!

    In other news after what seems years in the coming I've finally joined Instagram! I know, I know, I am so far behind everyone else so please help me chase the pack.




  • Jess Sara Wright said

    Hi Jason, World Nomads and team,

    Is it okay to enter slightly touched-up photographs (exposure, contrast, saturation) as displayed on my website? I have the original unprocessed photographs that I would be able to send in on request.



    Hi Jess, yes you can submit photographs which have been digitally adjusted. However, the faithful representation of what was captured at the time of the shot being taken must be maintained, so don't go overboard in post-production. If you are a finalist we will request that you send the original images in order to compare your submitted entry to what was initially captured. We want someone with great photography skills, not great photoshop skills!

  • Fiona said

    Hi There,
    I submitted my entry just now, and noticed that the colours on my submitted photos are different to my original photos (my monitor using Adobe 98). The submitted photos has a slightly different colour cast, making them more rich. I'm a little concerned now as my original colours were the most accurate, and the criteria states that colours have to be an accurate representation. Should I adjust my original photos (taking into account this colour cast) and re-upload them again? Thanks, Fiona

    Hi Fiona, could you please send your photos to so we can compare them to your entry? You won't be penalised for minor colour variations.

  • Priya said

    Hi there! I was just about to submit my entry but encountered a little snag - could you help me out pls? When I login the application page opens up and the next part asks me to create a journal entry. It then says: "Yep, done this bit too. Your journal is:" which is followed by a link to my old entry which I submitted back in Jan 2013. Is this supposed to happen?! Do I just ignore that link and carry on with the application form or should I delete the old journal entry? Thanks so much! x

    Hi Priya, this is a link to your journal, not your old entry. If you follow through with the application, you will have created another story within your journal. You wont need to delete previous entries, just ignore and carry on with your application. Good luck!

  • Tim said

    So, it states pretty clearly on the FAQs that HDR images aren't accepted. However, I have a photo that I took with my phone that I want to include with my set, and I took it on HDR mode with my phone. I don't think it's a true HDR image, as I didn't do any post-processing, but I want to see if it's acceptable before submitting it. I have a Nexus 5 if that helps.


    Tim, I've responded to your email. Please check your inbox. Thanks!

  • World Nomads said

    Hi everyone,

    If you have uploaded your photos via flickr and have noticed that your entry essay appears twice - don't worry! We're aware of this glitch, and will not penalise your entry due to the duplication of your essay.

    To those who are yet to apply: Submit your entry as soon as possible! This is the best way to avoid last minute panic and ensure the successful submission of your application. Good luck!

    UPDATE: All duplicate essays errors have now been resolved.

  • Cat said

    Hi Pari,

    In uploading the photos via World Nomads, we are told that to save time we can upload a smaller image of 520 pixels on the long edge (if I remember correctly). But the FAQs say we should submit at a minimum of 960 pixels long. I uploaded 520 pixel versions and they are blurry when shown 'in large size'. My mistake - may I re-upload my photos or will this not matter? Thank-you for your time.

    Hi Cat, I've responded to your question via email. Please check your inbox. Thanks!

    I've been processing my photos on a screen that I calibrated so that my photos would match what my local shop prints. When I switch to Adobe RGB 1998 I get a severe blue colour cast with quite a bit higher black point. I'm not sure whether this is a fault of my monitor. Is there any way I could send two images, one edited in my colour space and the other edited in Adobe RGB 1998 and see which shows properly? Thanks.

  • Damjan said

    I am trying to upload the photos via worldnomads website for my Scholarship entry, but I encountered two problems.
    First: I am a little confused in regards to the pixel size. Should it be minimum 960 pixels on the longest length of the image or 520 pixels across the longest side?

    And secondly: The captions space is very limited (80 characters with space) for describing the context of the photo. Is that an intentional restriction, or is there another way to write captions up to two sentences?

    Thank You!

    Hi Damjan,
    1. We suggest a resolution of 72 ppi/dpi and a pixel length of at least 960 pixels of the longest length of the image. Photos uploaded to a journal will be resized to a maximum of 960 pixels along the longest side. The maximum pixel size of photos uploaded to flickr will depend on the type of flickr account you have (free or paid), but will be at least 1024 pixels.
    2. If you use the recommended file uploader you should not have an issue with the caption character limit - the alternate uploader has a restriction. If you cannot upload your photos directly onto your World Nomads journal, please upload via flickr and include your captions in your flickr set.
    If you have any further issues, send us an email at

    Hi, I used color space Adobe 1998, but the colours on the pictures i just uploaded are very different from the originals (they are much paler). I just realised I entered a image size way to big (300 ppi), my mistake. I also uploaded a picture with pixel size 950, but the colours were still pale.
    What happened to the colours and more important, how do I fix it? Please help, thank you! grtz leonore

    I have the same issue as leonore -- that my pictures are much paler once i uploaded them then my originals are. Also, i see that some people were able to write longer captions - mine were cut off around 80 characters. Is there a way to go back and write longer captions like i originally was hoping to and/or edit how the photos look? Any help would be appreciated.

    Just want to make sure that you know about it so it's considered in the competition. Thanks!!!

    Hi Manal, your entry has been received. Thanks!

    Here's the link to my photo set on flickr. I can't get it to link to my journal...

    Hi there, I was wondering how I could change my journal name (if it's at all possible). It is still called Air Guitar World Championships after my previous entry, and isn't necessarily the best suited for future scholarships..It probably doesn't matter for the judging, but would be good to know if I can do something about it. Thanks so much!

    Hi Maria,
    Good to hear you're applying for another one of our scholarships! Unfortunately, you cannot change your journal name. The only thing you can do is create a new account with a different email address. As you've already mentioned, it won't matter in the judging process.

    Hi, I'm having trouble submitting my entry (and I've apparently "submitted" my entry, so it won't let me redo it). It won't accept my photos on flickr and I can't use the site uploader. I'd really like for it to be considered, and would appreciate any help - journal:

    I just entered, thinking I had a hour left (Queensland, Aust time). I had 2 minutes because QLD doesn't have daylight savings. Is it possible to find out if it went through?

    Monique, here is your entry:

  • Bryce Hughes said

    I uploaded my images straight to world nomads, everything went fine :)
    My only issue was with the captioning, It would only appear to allow enough characters for one sentence! I've looked at some other entries and they have 3-4 times more text than what I could put.
    How can I fix this? There is more to write!!! :)

    Hi Bryce,
    You can edit captions by clicking into your photo gallery. Remember, we only need a maximum of 2 sentences! All the best!

    I saw the scholarship competition too late myself, and will not participate; It's already after deadline. But I will keep an eye open for future scholarships, and I will follow this competion closely, I am very excited to see what the results of the time in Peru will result in. And who knows, maybe I'll be inspired to do a trip in that direction myself very soon, Peru or South America in general is very high on the to do list, I keep ending up in Europe and Asia most of the time... Best of luck, fellow photographers-to-be/adventurers/travellers!!!

  • Saeedul Alam said

    Hi, I have wanted to apply for the scholarship, planned to submit my entry yesterday (24th November). Unfortunately, I couldn't login to this website since yesterday. I have tried many times to login, but it said "the server is busy". My location is Victoria, BC, Canada. Right now I can login to the website, but the scholarship entry is closed.
    Is there anyway I can still apply? Email or any other means?

  • Lorenzo Zucco said


    I hope Jason Edwards could read that.
    I'm pretty sad, because I just realized the appling time was over once I had already (too late) applied, so actually I didn't.
    It was just confusion with the Timeline, I hope really that Mr. Edwards could read that or/and do something. It took me really long but mostly for the engagement to choose among my pictures, just for that possibility.
    Hope will never die.

    Hi Lorenzo,
    Very very sorry to hear you missed the deadline. Stay tuned for next year's scholarship opportunity!

    Hi - when/ how will contestants know about being short listed / having to send in RAW files? The email I used to enter is not very reliable so I want to know how short listed contestants might be contacted, and when. Thanks!
