Contest Rules

2016 Travel Photographer of The Year Contest
We're now entering the final two months of competition and things are going to start hotting up in the 2016 Travel Photographer of The Year Competition.

Round Nineteen

The rules are simple.

An entry must consist of three, completely different, travel-related colour photographs - two horizontal and one vertical - and they must have been taken in 2016.

As usual, the entries may not have been submitted to any of our previous travel photography contests.

>> No Digital Art nor Paintings. No black and white, sepia nor digitally manipulated images.

>> Fine Art America watermarks should not overpower the image.

No other text nor copyright notices should appear on the photograph either.

>> Photos should have good descriptions.

You may also post in the contest forum to tell us more about where and when the photographs were taken and why you think they make great travel photographs.

► Sponsored by the Top Travel Pics group, entries that do not follow our submission guidelines will be deleted.

Images that are considered weak will also be removed from competition.


Three Winning Images

12 points for one or more photographers who manage to impress with all three images.

Each image should be of a different subject or location, within the field of travel photography, to illustrate diversity in a portfolio.

► If all you have is landscapes, you might be on the wrong page.

Two Winning Images

6 points if a photographer has two horizontal images in the winning selections.

8 points if one is horizontal and the other vertical.

One Winning Image

3 points for single images that make the Editor's Top Picks.

Honourable Mention

1 point may be awarded for an honourable mention.

Void Entries

If one image is void and removed from the contest, that photographer's whole entry becomes invalid.

The Editor's Decision is Final.

Submission Rules

Each participant may submit 3 images.
