Welcome to Travel Photographer of the Year
The premier travel photography awards. Your showcase to the world
TPOTY, the photo contest run by photographers for photographers. Amateur or professional, beginner or expert, young or old, we have categories to suit you all. Judged by leading photography experts and, thanks to our very supportive sponsors, offering fantastic prizes, including the latest photographic gear and some very special travel experiences; not forgetting the Cutty Sark Award for our overall winner.
And, thanks to our partnership with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), the winning images are exhibited each year in a magnificent, historical location.
