The Travel Photography Awards encourage excellence and creativity in the genre of travel photography. “Great travel photos tell the story of a place – documenting the people, the land or the culture found there, with no geographical limitations”. But remember, you don’t have to have travelled to Timbuktu to enter (though if you have, send us your photos)! Great travel photos can just as easily be taken in your home town. As long as your imagery tells a story about a place, they can be considered travel photography.
With that in mind, we encourage you to submit your best five travel photos for a chance to win one of a number of incredible prizes, from an amazing 7 night / 8 days photo trip to Tahiti with world renowned travel photographer Chris McLennan, through to a professional DreamColor Mobile Workstation from HP.
