TIME is looking for the best young photographers of 2011.

Recently announced by TIME and their fantastic photography blog, LightBox:

This fall, TIME invites talented student photographers dedicated to honing their craft, whether it be photojournalism, portraiture, still life, conceptual or fine art, to submit a portfolio of at least 10 but no more than 20 photos for review by our editors. All applicants must be currently enrolled students or members of the class of 2011.

See the full rules here. Students – you’ve only got until October 17th, so get editing.

**EDITOR’S NOTE: One of the NPPA student committee members noticed this rights grab in the contest rules:

In addition, by entering, Entrant grants to TIME.com a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to edit, publish, promote, republish at any time in the future and otherwise use Entrant’s submitted photos, along with Entrant’s name, likeness, biographical information, and any other information provided by Entrant, in any and all media for possible editorial, promotional or advertising purposes, without further permission, notice or compensation (except where prohibited by law).”

That’s a pretty sweeping license to grant someone to use your photographs. Please be aware of this if you decide to enter.**
