TPOTY at the Royal Geographical Society in London
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.
2013 exhibition smashes attendance records

This year's exhibition closed its doors on Sunday 18th August after attracting record visitor numbers. In just five weeks we welcomed 48,061 visitors, averaging 1,265 visitors per day. This attendance broke last year's record of 42,404, achieved in a 10 week exhibition period - an increase of 218% for a comparable period.
In the last weekend alone over 11,000 people passed through the gallery.
