The Assignment: To travel to Holland, the Netherlands and create a special article for the Lonely Planet Philippines magazine. The winners will have to experience the destination not only as a photographer but also a traveler. They will have to photograph the destination in the quality of an international travel magazine and to take notes about their trip which will then be converted into an exclusive travel piece for the magazine.
To try and become a finalist you must:
1. Pitch- I realize people try to be creative and post videos. Up to you if you want to do this to get recognized, but it is not necessary. The best pitches will be compelling and make us want to choose you. The Pitch is 30% of the selection process.
2. Portfolio- You should submit a portfolio of photos that show your range in travel photography. Do your homework about Editorial Travel Photography. That is what we are looking for, images that tell a story and are good for magazines. The smart photographer would probably show street, architecture, food, etc. Portfolio will be 50% of the selection process.
3. Photo- We need to see how you interpret things and require that you submit one photo besides your portfolio that will follow a theme. KLM's current campaign now is called "Journeys of Inspiration" We are going to simplify this with the simple theme of INSPIRATION. So come up with one image that shows INSPIRATION and use it for this themed section. The theme is worth 20% of the selection process.
Entering means you PITCH, PORTFOLIO, and PHOTO all in one POST.

THE DPP - KLM SHOOTOUT:
Out of 120 photographers, only the best SIX photographers picked by DPP & KLM could go to the Netherlands on a special assignment to photograph HOLLAND for a special feature article in the Lonely Planet magazine. Unfortunately, DPP-KLM cannot take all SIX finalists on this trip so they need to determine which TWO photographers will be the best representatives for KLM and the Lonely Planet.
