Your showcase to the world

The 2021 Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) awards are open for entries and this year’s winners will feature in our 20th anniversary exhibitions

ENTRIES CLOSE 19 OCTOBER

Run by photographers for photographers, TPOTY is truly global – wherever you live in the world and whether you are amateur or professional, beginner or expert, young or old, Travel Photographer of the Year is for you!

We have new categories and a brand-new online entry system, and we can’t wait to see your entries.

Plus, there’s exciting new entry option which allows you to submit 10 images in one entry (any mixture of portfolio and single images or just single images) for just £40, making a huge saving!

Take a look at Eye for the Light too.

It’s TPOTY’s new membership area – an online magazine with engaging features, advice, opinions and interviews with talented photographers, travellers, competition judges and people with an in-depth knowledge of the worlds of photography and travel.

There are over 40 fascinating features and podcasts to enjoy, plus members receive up to £30 worth of FREE TPOTY entries  and save an extra 10% more on additional entries and discounts on camera gear and printing!

You don’t need to be an Eye for the Light member to enter TPOTY, but you get some great benefits if you are!
