Deadline: Oct. 1, 2016. From TPOTY:
We advise you not to leave online entry until close to the deadline. At that time lots of people are trying to enter and the TPOTY server gets very busy. We will only accept late entries where there is an unavoidable problem which we are made aware of before the deadline.
TPOTY is open for entry for over four months. There will not be a deadline extension!
How to apply: Online via TPOTY
Eligibility Requirements: Entry is open to anyone except those directly involved in the running of the competition or judging. Any photographer, amateur and professional, aged 19 years and over, from any country, can enter the three Portfolio categories and anyone can enter the three Single Image ‘One Shot’ categories, the new Smart Shot category and the HD Video category.
The New Talent and Young Travel Photographer of the Year categories all have restrictions on entry as follows:
- New Talent is for photographic students, and amateur or semi-professional photographers only. Entrants must be aged 19 or above. Professional photographers are not eligible to enter this category and photographic status will be checked before any prizes are awarded.
- Young Travel Photographer of the Year is for photographers aged 18 years and under. There are two age categories – aged 14 years and under, aged 15 to 18 years.
Special Notes: The final round of judging requires entrants to submit prints.
