It's your last chance to enter the Travel Photographer of the Year competition this week.
The awards are open to all photographers from all countries; beginners, young photographers, amateurs, semi-professionals and professionals alike.
The diverse category themes provide opportunities to enter travel images covering many different subjects. This year there is also a category dedicated to black and white imager, while the HD video category - Travel Shorts - has been extended to include films up to thre minutes in length.
With £6,000 in cash, a range of the latest Fujifilm cameras and trips to Morocco and California amongst the many prizes, there is plenty to reward the best entries, with the Cutty Sark Award waiting for the overall winner.
In addition, the winning images will be displayed in a fascinating exhibition at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London next summer. TPOTY’s ongoing partnership with the Society attracted over 48,000 visitors to the 2013 exhibition, creating a magnificent international showcase for travel photography and photographers.
Images can be submitted as prints or uploaded online, and HD video entries submitted on DVD by post. Entries close on 1 October 2013. Entry fees start at £10 and Young TPOTY is free to enter. Full details of how to enter can be found on the TPOTY website
