Daily Shot is National Geographic Traveller India’s daily photo contest. Send us images that fit our current theme, and your photo could be showcased on our home page and social media accounts. When the theme ends, our in-house experts choose a winner who receives a smashing Nat Geo goodie bag.

What’s the theme? This time, we’re looking for photos of New Beginnings, a timely theme given that the new year has just kicked off. Send us your favourite photos, along with information about the picture and why you consider it to be a new beginning. Feel free to experiment with moods and subjects; we like unusual and striking points of view. Do tell us the story behind the photograph, so we can share it with our readers when you win.

What do I get if I win? The day’s winning photograph is showcased on Nat Geo Traveller India’s homepage, Facebook page, and on our Instagram and Twitter accounts. The theme winner (selected once a month) receives an annual subscription to National Geographic Traveller India, a photographer’s jacket, and a set of quirky wildlife coasters. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep track of the winners, but don’t worry if you miss the announcement; you will also be notified by email if you are selected.

How do I enter? Use the form below to submit your Daily Shot image (max 1MB) along with your full name, email, postal address, and a brief description of the photograph and why you like it. If you have a Twitter handle, include that too so we can shout out to you when your image is selected. There’s a winner every day, so hurry.
