TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR FLIES INTO LONDON
FREE OPEN-AIR EXHIBITION OF WORLD-CLASS IMAGES, MARCH 28-APRIL 30

March 26 2019 - London gains a stunning, FREE, open-air photography attraction this week when the latest winning images from the international Travel Photographer of the Year awards go on display this Thursday, March 28, at London Bridge City SE1 2DB - adjacent to City Hall and the Scoop and opposite the Tower of London. This fascinating, vibrant and evocative exhibition of world-class contemporary travel photography will be viewable 24 hours a day and run until April 30.

The exhibition is the first public showing of the winning shots from the 2018 Travel Photographer of the Year competition (TPOTY). Amateur and professional photographers from 142 countries submitted over 20,000 images, and photographers from 22 countries feature amongst the winners. The 2019 TPOTY awards open on April 11. Shot on everything from high-end mobile phones to professional cameras, the exhibited images present a glorious, intriguing, at times poignant, thought-provoking view of this planet and its human and wild inhabitants.

Exhibition visitors can vote for their favourite image at tpoty.photo, and everybody who votes will be entered into a draw for the chance to win a range of prizes including a one-day private photography lesson with TPOTY founder Chris Coe, an Alondra Traveller or Halcon Traveller jacket from Páramo and a meal for four people at DimT’s flagship London Bridge restaurant.

In addition, Travel Photographer of the Year and Photo Iconic are staging a series of low-cost photowalks and workshops around the Tower Bridge/the Scoop area, bookable via www.tpoty.com. These range from £20, 2-hour London Photowalks and evening City Lights Photowalks to a one-day ‘Get Off Auto, Get Creative’ beginners’ photography workshop. Fujifilm is bringing some of their latest cameras for participants to try, Swarovski Optik is providing binoculars to give a new perspective on this highly photogenic location and photowalk and workshop participants receive a generous 40% discount voucher for DimT’s London Bridge restaurant.
