The Independent Traveller and Wanderlust magazine have 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 Mexico, plus Nikon camera equipment.
There are four amateur categories: People; Wildlife; Landscape; and a new theme, Travel Icons – shots of places, events and people that have iconic status in the world of travel.
The winner of each category will receive a photo commission to Mexico, courtesy of the Mexico Tourism Board and British Airways, plus a Nikon camera. The runners-up will also receive Nikon cameras, as will four highly commended shots.
In addition, a Portfolio category is open to amateurs and professionals, with a top prize of £5,000. Entrants must assemble five images, all themed to fit one of the four amateur categories. A runner-up prize of £1,000 plus a Nikon camera will be awarded.
Shortlisted photographs will be exhibited at Destinations Holiday & Travel Show 2009 at London's Earl's Court (5-8 February and Birmingham NEC (27 February-1 March). See www.destinationsshow.com
