Tamron USA has announced their fifth "My Travel Exhibit" photo contest. This contest allows Tamron lens users in the USA to submit their best 8-14 images which fit the "travel" theme of the contest. After entering, contestants will be able to view entries in Tamron's unique photo-sharing website, My Photo Exhibits.

In My Photo Exhibits, you can create a virtual 3D photography exhibit and share them with others. It's a great way to be able to share your work online. The contest itself, which began on July 20, is open for entries until September 30. Tamron representatives will judge the images based on originality and overall quality. The winner will be awarded the Tamron lens of their choosing, and given a featured spot on Tamron's site and in the lens manufacturer's newsletter.

Full contest rules are available here, but the basics are that you can enter 8-14 of your best travel photos. Take note that no HDR images, panoramas or photos with manipulation beyond color correction, brightness, contrast or black and white conversion are allowed.

In addition to the My Photo Exhibits website, there is also an app available for iPhone and iPad which allows users to browse exhibits, including their own, and share exhibits. The free app is available on the App Store. Android users will need to stick with the website, as there's no such app on their platform.
