Are you a fan of adventure racing? Fancy yourself a photographer? Ever wanted to visit Patagonia? Then I’ve got just the opportunity for you. The Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race takes place February 8-16, 2011 in Chile’s Patagonian region, and the organizers of the event are looking to add someone to their official photography team. In fact, they’re running a contest to fill the job.
Entry for the contest is now open, and you’ll find all the details by clicking here. Simply fill out the from with the standard info, such as name, address, e-mail, etc., and upload three photo samples, and you’re in the running. If you’re the grand prize winner, you’ll get a trip to Chile, including airfare, accommodations, and ground transportation while in Patagonia, where you’ll get unprecedented access to the race course so you can document the drama and excitement of this great race.
For the past few years, the Patagonian Expedition Race has been one of the first big events of year on the AR calendar, and 2011 looks to be no different. The race attracts top teams from around the globe, giving them a chance to compete in one of the most spectacular wilderness environments on the planet. Patagonia is a fantastic place to hold a race, and each year it seems to throw new and unexpected wrinkles at the racers. I’m sure 2011 will be no different, except if you’re the luck photographer who gets to go, you’ll get to see it all first hand.
