The New York International Auto Show is looking for aspiring automotive photographers to submit their best pictures for a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to New York to attend the auto show during the press preview.

The trip for two includes airfare, accommodations and show credentials. The first-place winner will be named the “Official Roving Photographer” of the NYIAS. As if that wasn’t cool enough, that person also gets a new Canon EOS Rebel T3i DSLR to shoot with. The second prize winner won’t travel but still gets a T3i DSLR while third place walks away with a $250 Visa gift card.

The three winning photos will be chosen by fans voting on the Snap MyLife contest page. The competition will close on March 25th, so head there now if you’ve got something to show off.
