Travel Photography Competition

Do you like taking pictures during your trips?

Would you like to show off your photographic talent, promote your work and build your portfolio?

That’s great because we love receiving photos which inspire us to travel further and see more of the world’s beauty!

Travel Photography Competition of the Year 2013 - collage.

Travel Photography Competition is a weekly contest in which you can share your photographs with a larger audience. The three winning shots are shown on our website with a short bio and a link to your website, Facebook page or Flickr photostream.

We give the photographers the credit they deserve!

What do I have to do?

  • Join our Facebook page
  • Post your TRAVEL shots on our wall with their location clearly indicated
  • “Like” and comment on other people’s work. It’s always nice to get feedback, isn’t it?

What do I gain?

① A shot bio and a link to your website

If you run a website yourself, you know how important links are!

② Start in our Travel Photography Competition of the Year

By winning one of our weekly competitions you automatically take part in the yearly contest in which you can win a valuable prize and an interview with Hitch-Hikers Handbook. Last year the total value of the prizes was over $4000.

③ Hitch-Hikers Handbook badge on your website

If you win, you will be entitled to use one of our HTML snippets on your website.

④ International recognition

Our website is visited by around 9,000 people from all over the world every month and our community has approximately 12,000 followers and it’s still growing.

④ Feedback on your work

Every member of our community is encouraged to comment on other people’s work. This feedback helps us all to become better travel photographers.

Rules

The three photos with the biggest amount of “likes” will be posted on our website. The competition has a 4-5 week delay so that the pictures sent later in a week will have an equal chance to get the same amount of “likes” as the ones sent at the beginning.

Each week you can post as many photos as you like but because we want to give credit to as many photographers as possible, we will publish only one photo per photographer.

Tips

Don’t post photos as links for two reasons: 1) we only count “likes” on our Facebook page, 2) links are less likely to be clicked and voted for by others. If you win, we will link to your website or Flickr page anyway.

What is TRAVEL photography?

Landscapes, cityscapes, monuments, places of interest, local people and their culture as well as you being on the road, travelling… The topic is very broad, we don’t want to limit you :)

What is NOT travel photography: macro photography, plants and animals which are not endemic to the destination shown in your photo.
