Flying the coup? Take a parting shot. has a new contest running that is sure to draw some imaginative entries: Shoot en Route, (cleverly named by GoNOMAD editor Max Hartshorne) which asks entrants for creative photos of airport parking lots.

As Lao-tzu said, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” and when traveling abroad, it all starts at the airport.

Prizes are given out monthly, the grand prize being a new Canon PowerShot SD850, with second place getting a cashmere travel pillow, third a solar charger.

The contest ends August 31 — may the craziest photo win!
