Indy Photo Competition: The Argentine Campo


After the success of our previous contest, we bring you the final Indy photo competition of the year! This time, to coincide with the National Day of Tradition (9th November), the theme is ‘The Argentine Campo’.

Gauchos, countryside, horses, mate… break out your inner criollo and send us your images of daily life, traditional culture, and people from Argentina’s rural heartlands.

Contestants should send us their best shot of ‘The Argentine Campo’ to by Friday 22nd November.

The Indy’s photography team will then select the best images and the final judgement will go over to you, our readers, to vote via Facebook during a ten-day period.

All the finalists will have their photograph printed and displayed at the next Underground Market on 7th December. And the winner can show a bit more of their work as they will have the chance to have a personal ‘Indy Eye‘ published here on our website, showcasing up to a dozen of their favourite shots.

– To enter, please email your photograph to by Friday 22nd November.

    How does one “vote via Facebook during a ten-day period” when one under no circumstances will give Faecesbook private, personal data to be sold to anyone who will pay?
