Travel Photographer of the Year 2007

I got an email this week from the Travel Photographer of the Year Awards announcing its 2007 contest, which will open for entries on 14th May. The closing date is 19th September. The full details and downloadable entry form is available (link below) from May 14th.

The 2007 TPOTY site will feature a new area which will act as a resource for travellers and photographers. This will include both travel and photographic features and reviews, a forum, a directory of photographers' images and contact details and a new members' area which will give access to additional articles and photography advice, special offers and monthly prizes.

As always with contests, awards and competitions, make sure you read the fine print and all the terms and conditions, to ensure you retain control over, and on your rights to your photograph(s). I participated in the 2005 TPTOY and was shortlisted in one of the categories, but didn't quite make it. One of the 'gimmicks' of the competition is that all the winning entries are eventually published in a coffee-table book, and its sale proceeds go to the organizers of the event.
