There's £40,000 worth of prizes up for grabs in the new Travel Photographer of the Year Competition with three different categories and an under-16 section too
Posted: 3 March 2003
Take a nice holiday snap and win a share of prizes worth around
Okay, so maybe 'snap' isn't quite the right word, but that's the
prize on offer from the new Travel Photographer of the Year and Young
Travel Photographer of the Year contests, which have just been
The winner of the senior category gets a trip for two people to
the frankly rather unexciting Bahamas, a £2000 spending spree at
a Calumet photographic store, a Manfrotto carbon fibre tripod, Adobe
software worth around £3,000 and a Lowepro DryZone 200
waterproof camera backpack.
The competition is split into three categories: 'People and
Places', 'Spirit of Adventure' and 'Colour and Passion' with a host
of individual category prizes on offer from a JLA trip to Cuba (yes
please) to whale-watching in Iceland.
Entrants muct submit a portfolio of four images per category and
can enter one, two or three of the categories, but if they want to
win the overall title, must enter at least two of them. Young travel
photographer entrants (aged 16 and under) need submit only one shot
There's also an 'image of the year' contest, where you can submit
single images. The sting is that it costs £5 to enter a single
category or image of the year and £10 for two or more
categories. Entry free to under 16s and half price to anyone aged 17
or above who is in full time education.
Full details from the competition
web site where there's also a downloadable entry form. Entries close on 14 September, 2003.
