If you enter one photo contest before the end of the year, let it be this. With The Full Story contest, Nikon and Nat Geo are soliciting shutterbugs to share stories that will make for great photo essays. To enter, they’re asking for one photo, accompanied by a >100 word paragraph about its meaning. They also want to see three additional photos, just to check out your photography chops.

The prizes, my friends, are more than worth the price of admission. (The price is free, but still.) Five first prize winners will be given Nikon D600 DSLRs with which to shoot their “full story” photo essays, and then one grand prize winner will be selected from among the five and sent on a National Geographic Expedition to the Galapagos Islands.

For more information, and to enter, visit the official contest page. Good luck!
