National Geographic photography scholarship in conjunction with National Geographic Channel are offering one talented individual the chance to be mentored by National Geographic photographer, Jason Edwards, one of the world’s leading wildlife and remote landscape photographers.

The scholarship recipient will go on assignment to explore the stunning landscapes of Oman from the historic mosques of Muscat, to remote canyon villages and rugged desert terrain by 4WD.

On assignment, they will have the opportunity to learn the ropes from a globally renowned Nat Geo photographer and find out why Oman is both the Arabia of Aladdin’s dreams and a modern society.

The winner of the scholarship will be flown to Muscat, Oman on Etihad Airways from their country of residence where they will join an 8-day trip with Peregrine Adventures and Oman Tourism. They will also receive a photographer’s dream kit to take on assignment, courtesy of Canon (which includes a Canon EOS 6D, 2 lenses, a PIXMA PRO100 printer and enrollment into the Canon Academy).

Applicants for the scholarship must shoot a series of photos (maximum of 5) that tell a story about a place they have visited and tell us about their photos and why they should be awarded the 2012 Travel Photography Scholarship to Oman.

All interested students should visit the Scholarship page for more information.

The deadline for entrants is January 14, 2013.
