TPOTY 2016

New Talent Portfolio

Pick a country or a place then tell us the story of that destination in six images. These images should give an overview, detail, mood and a sense of what it's like to be there and experience it - the location, the people and creatures who live there, its landscapes and/or villages and cities.

Telling a story with pictures can be challenging and daunting yet this key skill is essential to any professional or aspiring professional travel photographer.

You can enter B&W or colour images.

What subjects can you include?

Places - every aspect which tells a story of your chosen destination - tell a story in a portfolio of six (6) related images.

Think of this as a story in pictures and a way to convey something of the character of your chosen destination, and create a visual travel article, illustrated without words. With only six images you must make every one count so make sure that each image tells a different part of the same story.

How many images?

A portfolio of six (6) images.

What are the judges looking for?

Images which reveal the essence of a country or place within a country, each image saying something different as you tell a visual story, a link between the images in your portfolio, creativity, originality.

Am I eligible?

New Talent is for photographic students, and amateur or semi-professional photographers only. Entrants must be aged 19 or above.

We consider a professional photographer to be somebody who earns more than 50% of their income from photography. Otherwise they are semi-pro if they earn some income from photography, or amateur if they earn little or nothing.

If you are already a professional photographer then please DO NOT enter this category. Give someone else a chance to start their career in photography. Professional photographers are not eligible and photographic status will be checked before any prizes are awarded.

How many times can I enter?

You can enter this category only once.
