“We are inviting anyone with an eye for photography and film, if you are a professional photographer or just an amateur with a camera phone, and you are passionate about the beauty that our Turks and Caicos has to offer, then you can enter the competition,” said Justin Missick, TCI National Trust Integrated Biodiversity Project coordinator.
Each entry must be personally shot by the participant. Photo entries are limited to two per person, and one per person for film competition entries. Include captions detailing where the shot was taken and a description.
