TPOTY Summer Seminar - 10,001
On 24th July we're running a special seminar with wildlife photographer and film maker, Chris Weston, and TPOTY founder, Chris Coe. This year's seminar is:
10,001 - Mastering the Art of Visual Storytelling
In this thought-provoking and inspirational evening seminar, set against the equally inspiring backdrop of the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition at the Society, acclaimed wildlife photographer Chris Weston shares his knowledge and experience of creating images that go beyond simple record shots and instead create a compelling visual story. Lively, informative, often humorous and always emotive, this seminar is crammed full of useful hints, tips and advice and is sure to educate, entertain and inspire you towards better, more creative photography. Tickets cost £12, or £25 for the VIP package (inc. reserved seating and 'Meet the Speaker' champagne reception).
This seminar will start at 7pm and finish at 9.00pm (VIP guests 10pm)
VIP tickets are available and include a glass of wine and tour of the TPOTY exhibition with the speakers.

TPOTY at the Royal Geographical Society in London
11th July until 17th August 2014
One of the joys of doing well in TPOTY is having your images displayed at the TPOTY exhibitions and being seen by thousands, sometimes millions, of people.
The home of the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibitions is the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG). The Society's gallery is situated close to Hyde Park on the corner of Kensington Gore and Exhibition Road, and adjacent to the Royal Albert Hall, in the heart of London's museum area.

When you visit the exhibition, if you vote for your favourite image you'll be entered into a prize draw to win a trip to Paris with Railbookers. This city break to Paris for two will include accommodation at the 3* Hotel Sèvres Saint Germain, which is a charming traditional style hotel.
