2021 Awards

At a time when travel is still so restricted, we’re inviting amateur and professional photographers from all countries and of all ages to submit into the 19th edition of this global contest. Entries for TPOTY 2021 open on 10th May and close on 12th October. But we want to stress that – as in 2020 – 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. 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 this is every bit as important as it was in 2020.

PLEASE RETURN TO THIS PAGE WHEN ENTRIES OPEN ON MAY 10TH FOR FULL DETAILS OF THE NEW CATEGORIES AND HOW TO ENTER THE AWARDS.

Our sponsors

It would not be possible to run Travel Photographer of the Year without the support of our sponsors and partners, and we are hugely grateful for their involvement each year.
