To celebrate National Geographic's 125th anniversary, National Geographic Channel and Canon had launched the Explore To Inspire Photo Contest, an Asia-wide search for Asia's top photographers!

The Explore To Inspire Photo Contest is opened for submission from 1 October 2013 to 30 November 2013 to all aspiring photographers, aged 18 and above, residing in Singapore, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam.

The contest is already a month in, so if you still have yet submitted your photo, you have another month to do so.

The theme is who or what inspires you to explore and you will need to have a description or explanation (not exceeding 300 characters) of why your submission fits the theme.

The prizes for this contest will be a dream-come-true for many.

The winning photographer will walk away with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III (body) and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend a 4-Day National Geographic Weekend Photography Workshop in San Francisco to hone his/her skill with a reowned National Geographic US photographer.

The first and second runners-up will receive a Canon EOS 6D (body) and a Canon EOS 70D (body) respectively.

All 3 winners will have their winning photos published in the March 2014 copy of National Geographic's Asia Edition!

Ready to submit? Then head on over the the official Explore To Inspire website and all the best!
