Photo Life and Photo Solution Magazines Present The World We Live In 2012 Photo Contest
Leading Canadian photography magazines, Photo Life and Photo Solution, are inviting North American photographers to submit their best work to The World We Live In, in either the Pro or Amateur categories, under three themes: Humanity, Environment and Interconnections.
Photos of a young child playing with the neighbour’s dog, birds flying low over the lake at dawn, the impressive architecture of the CN Tower, a stranger strolling down the street, a flower, an insect, a table set for dinner… Look around at any moment, and you’ll see that photographic opportunities are everywhere.
Whether you’re pro or amateur, it’s time to share your photographic talent and show us your vision of the world we live in. Dare to challenge your creativity!
Participants are invited to submit their images through a simple on-line interface. Participation fees are required, with special rates for subscribers. The submission deadline is November 30. More than $40 000 will be distributed in fabulous prizes!

The Environment: Nature and wildlife will never cease to amaze us. Show us the outstanding beauty of our living world, whether through wide landscapes or close-ups of natural elements, animals, plants or insects.
Interconnections: Humans are by nature interactive beings. Show us how we transform and create things. This can be seen in architecture, domestic pets, urban life, objects, transportation, machines, agriculture, fishing, cooking and almost anywhere you look!
