That’s a great gift that h2g2.com will do to one of you (well one that live in the uk at least), no less than a small part in the Hitchhiker’s movie!
“Ever wanted to be in a movie? Take a photo for the real Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and be in with a chance to be an extra in the film version!
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (the radio show and book that inspired h2g2) began with the Earth being destroyed by aliens who were clearing the way for a new hyperspace bypass. With the movie version of HHGTTG now in production, Earth is once again at risk. Now the entire globe is classified ‘Last Chance to See…’
But what if you could save one part of the planet Earth for the rest of the Universe to see? Which bit do you think aliens would be most enthralled by? Which bit stands out as the best achievements of Mother Nature or the Human race?
How to Enter
The mission of the real-life Hitchhiker’s Guide – h2g2 – is to catalogue the planet Earth, its life forms, cultures, history and technology – everything in fact. Everyday people from all over the world write entries for the guide on all manner of subjects. But now we’ve decided that we don’t just want to read about the planet – we want to see it! To do this, we need photographs of some of Earth’s best bits. Here’s where you come in: we want you to send us a photograph of the place on Earth you think deserves to survive the planet’s destruction:
Maybe there’s a building that you think is awe-inspiring
It might be a breathtaking vista from the top of a mountain or bowl of a valley
Perhaps you have a picture of an animal in its natural habitat that blows you away
Or it might be a warning to other planets against pollution and over-industrialisation
The short-listed pictures will be shown in a gallery that will become part of the h2g2 guide. But one lucky photo will be chosen – with the help of our judges – as representative of the best the planet Earth has to offer to our galactic neighbours. The prize-winning photographer of that picture will be invited to be an extra in the movie of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Just imagine it – you could be one of the first people in the world to see behind the scenes on one of the most eagerly-awaited films in the history of everything!”
