In addition to an all-expenses-paid assignment for a week in Bhutan, the qualifying candidate (minimum age 18 and fit for trekking) will receive AU$2,000 worth of Pentaxphotographic equipment of his/her choice. The best photos will be published on the National Geographic Channel's website offering a unique chance to get a foot in the door of one of the most revered exploration organizations in the world.

The deeply spiritual and mystical Bhutan is slowly lowering its veil to the modern world while maintaining a careful balance with its ancient traditions. Nestled in the Himalayas, bordering India and China, 65% of Bhutan is under forest cover, making its pristine ecology home to rare and endangered flora and fauna.

The successful candidate will be flown from the country of residence to Paro, Bhutan, to meet up with JoJo's Adventure guide for a seven-day trip from Dec. 5-12. The assignment is to work alongside Jason Edwards photographing rare and endangered wildlife in the Phobjikha Valley including the White Bellied Heron (there are only 200 left in the world, and 30 live in this valley) and Black Necked Cranes. The trip will also include historical architecture and traditional Bhutanese culture.

The scholarship recipient will gain invaluable mentoring and hands-on experience in everything from shot set up, technique and composition to insights into Edwards’ many years of diverse experience as an award winning photographer. This is a rare experience into what it's like to be a photographer on assignment with National Geographic.
