TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR 2020 IS NOW CLOSED FOR ENTRY. THE INFORMATION BELOW IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY. WE WILL ANNOUNCE NEW CATEGORIES FOR TPOTY 2021.
A celebration of the colourful planet we live on, whether that be people, places, festivals or anything else you discover on the journey or at the destination. And, in today’s most extraordinary times, it could be something colourful you find as you stay close to home.
Any subject but all about colour.
One image per entry.
A fabulous image that makes the best use of colour, whether it’s vibrant and brilliant, or soft and subtle.
This category is open to all photographers.
You can enter this category more than once.
£10 for each single-image entry. Entry during May and June 2020 – £5 with EARLY_BIRD discount code.
This category is a standalone award and entries are not considered in selecting the winner of the overall title of Travel Photographer of the Year 2020.
No! We have always allowed entrants to submit images from their archives – i.e. contemporary photography shot in recent years – and have always said that ‘travel starts when you leave your home’ and never has this been more important than in 2020. Entries close on November 2nd, so, depending on when travel restrictions are lifted, there may also be time for you to shoot new material before the closing date. But we want to stress that, in these extraordinary times, entrants should not make unnecessary journeys or break any lockdown that may be in force in their country of residence in order to take photographs to submit, and archive images are always welcome in TPOTY.
