The 2011 Travel Photographer of the Year is now OPEN for entries. Make sure you submit your entry by the closing date of October 9th, 2011. There's something for everyone with four portfolio categories: Cultures & Traditions, Natural Elements, Exotic and Spirit of Adventure. They also have categories created for you budding photo students: One Shot single image category, Young TPOTY (for those are you aged 18 years and under), the First Shot beginner's award and New Talent. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase your work at the Royal Geographical Society's Kensington gallery in London next year during the 2012 Olympic games.
Travel Photography Of The Year has teamed up with the YPA (Young Photographer's Alliance) to offer mentoring and portfolio reviews to the New Talent and TPOTY winners. This new and exciting scheme could offer you a valuable opportunity to get advice on your photography from leading photographers and picture editors in the industry. The winners will also be offered guidance from the editorial team of the British Journal of Photography.
There are some fantastic prizes including travel adventures, photographic equipment and photography tuition. For some inspiration why not check out the 2010 winner's gallery here.
Good Luck to those of you who enter!!
