In this portfolio we give you the chance to show your best work, the art or fine art of travel photography. By entering this category you will automatically be eligible for consideration for the title of Travel Photographer of the Year.

Your Art of 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 so that it is a cohesive set of images. Please do not submit images which have won or been placed in TPOTY before. Be aware that our judges are highly image literate and will be looking for originality.
