With the entry deadline of 21st October fast approaching, both amateur and professional photographers need to submit their best shots to Wanderlust travel photo competition for a chance to win some outstanding prizes.
The winning images, plus a selection of shortlisted shots, will be printed in Wanderlust magazine and website, The Independent newspaper and will be showcased in a stunning exhibition at Destinations 2012, the UK’s top holiday and travel show. The selected images will be printed by PhotoBox.
Photos entered into the Amateur category can be taken anywhere in the world, but must fit one of four categories: People, Wildlife, Landscape or Travel Icons. The Travel Icons category is designed to recognise shots of places, events and people that have achieved an iconic visual status in the world of travel.
There will be a winner for each of the four categories, each of which will be whisked away (along with a companion) to Colombia. Each runner-up will receive a Nikon D3100
camera worth £579, with the highly commended Amateur entries picking up a nifty Nikon Coolpix S9100
camera worth £299.
The Portfolio category is open to both amateur and professional photographers, with a top prize of £3,000. Entrants to this category need to assemble a set of five eye-catching images, which together present an inspiring and unique insight into one of the four categories (People, Wildlife, Landscapes, Travel Icons). The top prize will be awarded to the portfolio that best tells a cohesive and spectacular story, while the lucky runner-up will walk away with a Nikon D3100
camera worth £579.
