Visual storytelling is the heart of National Geographic. For the first time in South Africa, amateur photographers are invited to showcase their unique stories and perspectives through their lens.
Use your imagination, dig deep into what every day epic means to you and express this through photography. Step out with a new perspective and rediscover our breathtaking world. Capture the epic in your day through a single image and you could win.
“Find the epic in every day”
What does epic mean to you? Whether it’s the joy of seeing the sun rise, taking a bike ride on a sand road, watching a loaf of bread rise in the oven, sharing a moment of connection in your family or giving your daily job everything you’ve got, epic is different to each person.
You may be inspired by someone else’s epic – watching a child take his / her first steps, the woman who feeds children at an orphanage or the elderly man who inspires others with his tales of life, these moments can all be captured if they speak to you.
No matter how big or small, epic is unique to each person. Show us how epic resonates with you, through your photographic shot.
