Your chance to enter the UK's biggest amateur travel photography competition
Friday 31 August 2012
The Independent Traveller and Wanderlust magazine have once again teamed up to present the Travel Photo of the Year competition, with the winners getting the chance to see their shots printed in the Independent Traveller and Wanderlust, as well as receiving a photo commission to Papua New Guinea.
There are four amateur categories: People, Wildlife, Landscape, and Travel Icons (shots of places, events and people that have iconic visual status in the world of travel). The winner of each category (plus a companion) will receive a photo commission courtesy of the Papua New Guinea Tourist Ofﬁce (papuanewguinea.travel), with a brief to capture the volcanic mountains, steaming rainforest and tribal culture of this fascinating country. Runners-up in each category will receive fantastic photo kits, courtesy of Jessops (jessops.com), the UK's leading photographic retailer.
In addition, a Portfolio category is open to amateurs and professionals, with a top prize of £3,000. In this category, entrants must assemble ﬁve eye-catching images, all themed to ﬁt one of the four amateur categories.
The winning entries, plus a selection of shortlisted photographs, will also be exhibited at Destinations 2013, the holiday and travel show.
