|Deadline: December 1st, 2008|
Wanderlust are now inviting entries for this year’s edition of the UK’s longest-running amateur photography competition. This year, there are two categories:
Amateur – open to amateur photographers only. Photographs may be submitted for one or more of the following categories: People; Wildlife; Landscape; Travel Icons
Portfolio – open to amateur and professional photographers. Photographs may be submitted for one of the following categories: People; Wildlife; Landscape; Travel Icons. We’re after a set of five eye-catching images, all themed to fit one of the four categories.
As always, we have fantastic prizes up for grabs for this year’s winners. The Mexico Tourist Board and British Airways will whisk the top photographer (and a companion) in each of the four amateur categories to the wave-lapped shores, Mayan delights and dusty badlands of Mexico, on a mission to capture some of its magic.
The winner of the Portfolio category will walk away with £5,000.
The Amateur competition is free to enter; the Portfolio competition has an entry fee of £10.
The winners and short-listed entrants will see their images printed in Wanderlust and The Independent, and exhibited at Destinations 2009, the UK’s top holiday and travel show. There are also great Nikon cameras to be won.
Sound good? Then get snapping!
THE CLOSING DATE FOR ENTRIES FOR THE 2008 COMPETITION IS 1 DECEMBER 2008
NEW CATEGORY ALERT!
This year, alongside the People, Wildlife and Landscape categories, we’ve introduced a new theme. The fourth category will be Travel Icons – classic shots of places, events and people that have achieved an iconic visual status in the world of travel. Whether its an original shot of Machu Picchu, a cowboy riding across the US plains or sari-shopping women in an Indian market, these shots should sum up the essence of the destination.
