The Chengdu Tourism Bureau together with the Chengdu Culture Tourism Group and the Chengdu Reasearch Base of the Giant Panda are hosting a photo contest revolving around the national treasure. As proud co-sponsors of this event, Gochengdoo and Chengdoo Citylife Magazine would like to encourage you to click on over to the "I Love Panda: Images, impressions, stories" page at Panda Home to learn more about the competition.
We kicked off the competition with dozens of you two weeks ago at the Day with the Pandas event at the Panda Base, and now we're inviting all of you to enter your photos for a chance to win part of the RMB9,999 (US$1,570) in cash prizes (first prize RMB4,999, second prize RMB3,000, third prize RMB2,000).
You can upload your photos featuring pandas or references to pandas here through October 10, 2012.
The public will be voting on their favorites here, and prizes will be awarded at the end. All winners and 97 runners up (including the TOP40 cutest panda photos) will be featured in a special gallery online.
