Photo Competition Prizes
Journey on the Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express including British Airways flights
The overall winner of the three photo competitions will have the chance to travel on the luxurious Golden Eagle Trans-Siberian Express as it rumbles across the vast expanses of Russia and Mongolia.
This luxury private train comprises en-suite sleeping cars with everything from power showers and underfloor heating to high quality entertainment options. Guests can also enjoy excellent food and wine in a beautifully appointed restaurant or watch the world go by with a vodka as a pianist plays in the popular bar car.
The route itself is one of the world's greatest, travelling 6,000 miles, one third of the way around the world, from Moscow, over the Urals, across the Russian steppes, along the shore of the world's deepest lake, down into Mongolia and then east to Vladivostock, where you'll conclude a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
The prize includes flights with British Airways from London to Moscow and back to London from Vladivostock, 1 night in Moscow, 12 nights onboard the Golden Eagle and 1 night in Vladivostock.

Stay at Lyngen Lodge and see the Northern Lights
The overall runner-up of the three photos competitions will win the chance to experience one of the world's great natural spectacles with a trip to Norway to witness the Northern Lights.
Fly with Norwegian from Gatwick to Tromso via Oslo. Stay at the stylish Radisson Blu overnight. The following day transfer from Tromso to Lyngen Lodge and check in for two nights. This luxury design lodge stands in the heart of the Lyngen Alps, high above the Arctic Circle, where it provides a unique combination of luxury accommodation, top quality cuisine and spectacular adventures into nature.
Nearby is the Lyngen Fjord, described by guests as the 'most dramatic and spectacular coastal scenery ever seen'. The following day take a Northern Lights photography course, which benefits from the lodge's remote location, with high mountains providing perfect vantage points and huge panoramas for the surreal lights to dance across; what's more, there's low light pollution so you'll enjoy undisturbed viewings.
On the fourth day, check out after breakfast and transfer back to Tromso, where you will stay a final night at the Radisson Blu before flying home to Gatwick with Norwegian.

Olympus E-PL5 camera
Winners of each of the photography competition categories will be awarded an Olympus E-PL5 camera, a mirror-less compact system camera with a 16 Megapixel sensor and a 3 inch articulated, angle-adjustable touch screen, which can be tilted up through 180 degrees for self-portraits.
Retro styled, the E-PL5 is a smart, versatile camera that comes with 12 Art Filters for creative effects. It can also shoot at eight frames per second for action photography and has had its top light sensitivity boosted to enable greater clarity of results when shooting using natural light only. The camera also comes with a small accessory flash that fits into a hotshoe as there's no built-in flash.
