The chance to have your pictures published in National Geographic magazine is up for grabs in a competition dedicated to photo enthusiasts.

Backed by Fujifilm the digital photography contest will give the winner the chance to go on an expenses-paid UK assignment with adventure photographer Bill Hatcher, a regular contributor to National Geographic. The winner?s pictures will be published in National Geographic as part of a three-page Fujifilm promotional feature for the magazine.

?We are anticipating a phenomenal response to this competition,? said Fujifilm UK?s marketing manager for Digital Imaging Will Rolls who added: ?Shooting a feature for National Geographic magazine is recognised by some professionals as the ultimate photographic achievement.?

The mission is to interpret ?morning, moon and night? – a theme Fuji will use to highlight that ?the next generation of digital cameras will have to have the sensitivity to perform in all lighting, not just bright sunlight?.

Entrants should produce three images, depicting anything from people, places and landscapes to cityscapes, moods and movements. ?It doesn?t matter if it?s at home or abroad,? said a spokesman. ?Entrants should ensure that the three shots ? along with a brief description of no more than 100 words ? provide a complete picture of the chosen subject, while capturing the essence of the changing day.?

The competition is open to photographers using any digital camera and the winner will be given a Fuji FinePix F30 Zoom (which has a top ISO sensitivity of ISO 3200) that they will use on the shoot.

Fifty runners-up will win a copy of a National Geographic Field Guide.
