Travellers from all over the world are invited to send in their best travel snaps in digital form to the Intrepid Photo Competition. You don’t have to be a pro, you just have to have a keen eye and a great travel spirit. Each month there is a new theme so to have a chance to be our monthly winner, you’ll need to upload a photo that encapsulates the relevant monthly theme:
July – Local faces
Getting up close and mixing it with the locals is the best thing about travel. Who did you meet on your last adventure? We’d love to see some local faces.
August – Australia and NZ
From the big red earth to the long white cloud, the Antipodes packs a punch when it comes to exceptional travel – whether it’s in the vast, dusty plains of the Outback or the epic volcanic landscapes of Aotearoa.
September – Food
Spicy Spanish tapas, tangy Thai satays, fresh Peruvian ceviche… let’s not kid ourselves, a region’s gastronomy can be a massive travel motivator. Send us a snap that sets our tummies rumbling and we’ll indulge your appetite for travel. Instagrammers be warned though – bleached shots rarely serve culinary justice!
October – Middle East and Turkey
Buzzing bazaars, looming desert horizons, exquisite architecture and some of the most iconic landmarks on the planet… Asia, Africa and Europe’s fusion point serves up a celebration of colour, light and movement.
November – South East Asia
The nature is pristine, the cities are intoxicating and the locals smile with all their hearts. Show us the sights of Southeast Asia through your lens.
December – Transport (the crazy ways we can get from A to B)
Planes, trains and automobiles? Try camels, cyclos, jeepneys, tuk-tuks, feluccas and hot-air balloons. If it’s weird, wonderful and made for movement, we’re all for it. Just no shots of travellers on top of elephants, thanks.
January – Wildlife
It could be cute, it could be scary, it could be toothed or it could be hairy. If you’ve shot one of Mother Nature’s creatures (with your camera, of course) we’d love to see it.
February – Asia
Be it art or architecture, clothing or customs, food or festivals, Asian cultures have a way of imbuing an appreciation for the aesthetic into every element of the everyday. What was it that caught your eye?
March – Famous landmarks (can include people)
They may have been snapped a million times before, but that doesn’t make them any less impressive. The world’s most famous landmarks have been given that title for a reason – show us your pick.
April – National Parks, Jungles and Mountains
Some places are best just as they’ve always been. Raw and rugged, wild and weathered, preserved and protected – we like to see nature just how nature intended.
May – The Mediterranean
Blue sea, bluer skies, heavenly cuisine and flawless beaches – the Greek Gods chose their stomping grounds well and countless others have followed their lead. What makes you mad for the Med?
June – North, Central and South America
Few places know how to put on a spectacle quite like the Americas. Whether it’s mesmerizing Mayan ruins, the brashness of the Big Apple or revelry of Rio, this region knows how to play up in front of a camera.
