Win a trip to Australia!
Your chance to enter the UK's biggest amateur photography competition
Thursday 30 September 2010
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 Australia's Northern Territory, plus Nikon camera equipment.
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 to Australia's Northern Territory, courtesy of Tourism NT and Territory Discoveries, with a brief to capture the magic of the Top End and Red Centre.
They will also win a handy Nikon camera worth £150. Each category runner-up will win a Nikon SLR camera worth £800, and any highly commended shots will win the photographer a Nikon camera worth £380.
In addition, a Portfolio category is open to amateur and professional photographers, with a top prize of £3,000.
Entrants must assemble five eye-catching images, all themed to fit one of the four amateur categories.
All shortlisted photographs will be exhibited at Destinations Holiday & Travel Show 2011 at London's Earl's Court (3-6 February) and Birmingham NEC (4-6 March).
