TPOTY 2015

The Travel Photographer of the Year 2016 will win a special award, which will be presented to the photographer who is judged to have submitted the best images across the portfolio categories - 'Mankind', 'Land, Sea, Sky' or 'Journeys & Adventures'.

What winning means?

The Travel Photographer of the Year award is a highly prestigious award which gains massive international recognition and media coverage.

The winner receives a great prize, but - equally importantly - has the satisfaction of winning one of the most hotly-contested photography awards in the world.

The international exposure that goes with that success is considerable and has raised the profile of past winners, helping them to sell their images, gain commissions and much more. Warning - winning this award can change your life!

How many images?

2 portfolios of 4 images each in any of the 'Mankind', 'Land, Sea, Sky' or 'Journeys & Adventures' portfolio categories. You can enter the same category more than once, or enter two or three separate categories as often as you wish.

What are the judges looking for?

An ability to photograph different travel-related subjects in an interesting, engaging and impactful way; creativity, originality, and also diversity across the portfolios submitted.

Am I eligible?

Entry is automatic if you have entered two or more portfolios.

Sponsors & Prizes

The winner of this category will receive £4,000 plus a set of luxury silver and leather travel goods from StaaG, a personalized leather portfolio case or iFolio case from Plastic Sandwich and £500 worth of Páramo outdoor clothing.
