Travel - Places & Experiences


© Samuel Fisch, USA

TPOTY 2014

Travel is one of life’s great experiences and adventures. Show us where you've travelled – close to home or far away - who you met, what you did and photographed when you got there. You can include photographs taken in your own country, or in another country, or even photos from more than one place, and your photographs can be of anything you saw on the journey.

You can enter colour or B&W images.

What subjects can you include?

Any place you've been on your travels and anything you've seen while travelling, but make sure to try to make your pictures fit together and tell a story of what you saw and did while travelling.

How many images?

4 related images showing us your view of the destination or destinations.

What are the judges looking for?

A carefully thought-out set of pictures which show us your view of your travels or of a particular journey, a link between the images in your portfolio, creativity, originality.

Am I eligible?

This category is only for photographers aged 18 years and under on the closing date - 1st October 2016. Young TPOTY is divided into two age groups: 15-18 years old and 14 years & under. A winner will be chosen from each of the two age groups. The theme is the same for both age groups.

The judges will also choose one overall winner - Young Travel Photographer of the Year 2016 - from all the entries, regardless of entrant age.

How many times can I enter?

You can enter this category as often as you wish.
