Photography competition: Win a trip to Colombia
Your chance to enter the UK's biggest amateur travel photo competition
Saturday 08 October 2011
The Independent Traveller and Wanderlust magazine have once again teamed up to present the Travel Photo of the Year competition. The top prizes are photo commissions to Colombia, while runners-up will receive Nikon camera equipment. And entrants get the chance to see their shots printed in The Independent Traveller and Wanderlust.
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.
Entries can be taken anywhere in the world. The winner of each category, plus a companion, will receive a photo commission to Colombia with a brief to capture the wonders of this dramatic country. The prize is courtesy of Proexport Colombia – the Colombia Tourist office (www.colombia.travel/en). Runners-up will win a Nikon D3100 camera worth £579, and any highly commended shots will win the photographer a Nikon COOLPIXS9100 camera worth £299.
In addition, a Portfolio category is open to amateur and professional photographers, with a top prize of £3,000 and a second prize of a Nikon D3100 camera. Entrants must assemble five images, all themed to fit one of the four amateur categories.
All shortlisted photographs will be exhibited at "Destinations: The Holiday & Travel Show 2012" in Manchester and London. For more information, visit destinationsshow.com.
