Participation in Intrepid Travel’s Annual Travel Photography competition is deemed acceptance of these Conditions of Entry.

Competition will run from 1st November 2015 – 30th June 2016.

November – Anything goes

You know the drill, guys. Anything and everything travel related is fair game this month. Hiking the Alps, Thai street food stalls, yachting in the Caribbean, we want them all. Just try to keep the cat selfies to a minimum.

December – Central & South America

With culture, colour and queso to burn, Central and South America are a photographer’s dream. Show us a flash of Quechan purple, the granite face of Torres del Paine or the vine-covered steps of Tikal. Then go and enjoy a well-earned siesta.

January - Food from the road

Point that lens away from your #deliciousdinner and onto the planet’s most sizzling street food, freshest market produce and finger-lickingest travel snacks. If it’s worldly and delicious, we want it on our plate. 

February – Local faces

So much of a person, and of a country, is written on the face. A gap-toothed grin from a carpet merchant in Cairo, a solemn frown in St Petersburg or a big old smile in Cambodia – we want to see them all.

March– Europe & Turkey

Ah Europe…point a lens anywhere and you’ll hit something impossibly romantic. But here’s the test: can you rise above the clichés? Show us Europe and Turkey as we’ve never seen them before. Le challenge is on.

April – Streetview

Street photography is edgy, funny and powerful by turns. This month we want your best shots from street level. Think the back roads of Brooklyn, a cobbled lane in Seville or the sandy streets of Jericoacoara. Show us the street in all its glory.                   

May - Friends travelling

You, your best buddy and a big wide world – that’s what we’re looking for this month. But try to avoid the selfie stick if you can. Show us your crew conquering the Annapurna, chilling out in Tulum or paddling down the Okavango. Friends forever.

June - Travel icons


Dust off those Taj shots. Bust out the Great Wall landscapes. This month we’re looking for the world’s travel icons, but not as you know them. Show us our old favourites in a new light. Bonus points if you fit your face in there too.
