Dead Sea, Israel. It’s a wonder of the world. Your jaw will drop and your body will feel something like zero gravity when you step into the extreme saltiness of the Dead Sea. But with millions of visitors year after year, this natural wonder – once the beauty secret of Cleopatra – is literally vanishing before our eyes.
A complex array of environmental, economic and political factors are causing the Dead Sea to disappear at an alarming rate and we feel it is time to enshrine these images before it is too late.
The Dead Sea Revival Project and the Dead Sea Virtual Museum are inviting photographers from around the world to preserve this wonder in images before the Dead Sea is gone forever. So we are announcing the:
2020 International Dead Sea Photo Competition
Submissions to open April 22, in celebration of Earth Day at: https://gurushots.com/challenge/dead-sea1/details, and close on May 21. Prizes in the value of $6,000.
