TRAVEL PORTFOLIO - BODY OF WORK
Travel Photographer of the Year was founded in 2003 and has completed 15 years of awards celebrating stunning photography from around the world. So this year this special eight-image Travel Portfolio category is a chance to showcase the very best of your travel photography. By entering this category you will automatically be eligible for consideration for the title of Travel Photographer of the Year.
Selected images from this category, along with features on the photographers, will be showcased in a special TPOTY exhibition in 2019 at Xposure, the Middle East’s premier photography festival.
Your Travel Portfolio must be travel images but the choice of subject(s) and the places where the images are taken is yours. We want to see your very best work, your style and ability to photograph diverse imagery, not eight images showing small variations on the same theme. Show us your skill at capturing varying elements of travel photography. This is your chance to showcase your approach to travel photography.
You can enter B&W or colour images. If you mix both then think carefully about the balance and presentation of your portfolio.
You can enter some images which have been previously entered in TPOTY but not the whole portfolio, but be aware they our judges are high image literate and will be looking for originality as well.
What subjects can you include?
Travel - a personal body of work.
How many images?
A portfolio of eight (8) images.
What are the judges looking for?
A well thought out collection of travel and travel related images which shows your style, diversity of skill and approach to photography.
Am I eligible?
This category is for all photographers aged 19 years and over.
How many times can I enter?
You can enter this category as many times as you wish.
The winner of this category will receive a Fujifilm X-Series camera and lens of their choice and a trip for two to Norway - from Kirkenes to Bergen - with Hurtigruten, plus membership of the Royal Photographic Society. In addition, selected images from this category, along with features on the photographers, will be showcased in 2019 at Xposure, the Middle East’s premier photography festival.
The judges will also select their favourite image from all the entered portfolios. The winner will receive a Genesis Imaging giclee exhibition print.
