2022 Travel AWARD Deadline: 31 August 2022

Competition Judge: STEVE MCCURRY

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it. Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary… We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually – Let’s travel together!
