Travel - A Personal Portfolio



© Chaoyang Cai, China

TPOTY 2017

Travel Photographer of the Year was founded in 2003 and has completed 15 years of awards celebrating stunning photography from around the world. So this year this special portfolio category is a chance to show the very best of your travel photography.

This portfolio must be travel images but the choice of subject(s) and the places where the images are taken is yours. We want to see your style and ability to photograph diverse imagery, not eight images showing small variations on the same theme - show us your skill at capturing varying elements of travel photography. This is your chance to showcase your style and aproach to travel photography.

You can enter B&W or colour images. If you mix both then think carefully about the balance and presentation of your portfolio.

What subjects can you include?

Travel - a personal body of work.

How many images?

A portfolio of eight (8) images.

What are the judges looking for?

A well thought out collection of travel and travel related images which shows your style, diversity of skill and approach to photography.

Am I eligible?

This category is for all photographers aged 19 years and over.

How many times can I enter?

You can enter this category as many times as you wish.

Sponsors & Prizes

The winner of this category will receive a Fujifilm X-Series camera and lens of their choice (more info) and a trip for two to Norway - from Kirkenes to Bergen - with Hurtigruten, plus membership of the Royal Photographic Society (more info).
