If you’re an avid amateur photographer with a hankering to travel to foreign lands and take stunning pictures along the way, World Nomads is offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a beautiful and exotic part of the world.

With the National Geographic Channel & Travel Photography Scholarship to South Africa, you will be able to see lions, elephants, giraffes and zebra in their natural habitat, in stunning Kruger National Park. You will also get a career-launching opportunity to have your photos published on the National Geographic Channel and be mentored by renowned wildlife and landscape photographer Jason Edwards.

With your sharp eye, impeccable sense of timing and place, and lust for learning and adventure, you will be a photographer on assignment with National Geographic and will thrill World Nomads readers with a daily diary describing your African adventures. This could be your chance to have the experience of a lifetime, and get the exposure you need to kick off your photography career. What are you waiting for?
