Terms & Conditions

Intrepid Travel Pty Ltd
Monthly photo competition

 Conditions of Entry and Eligibility


1.    Intrepid Travel (35 007 172 456) of Level 3, 380 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, 3000 (Promoter) 

2.    Any willing and eligible participant in the competition

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

There are 12 monthly themes, as set out below;

 July – Local faces

Getting up close and mixing it with the locals is the best thing about travel. Who did you meet on your last adventure?  We’d love to see some local faces.


August – Australia and NZ

From the big red earth to the long white cloud, the Antipodes packs a punch when it comes to exceptional travel – whether it’s in the vast, dusty plains of the Outback or the epic volcanic landscapes of Aotearoa.


September – Food

Spicy Spanish tapas, tangy Thai satays, fresh Peruvian ceviche. Let’s not kid ourselves, a region’s gastronomy can be a massive travel motivator. Send us your best foodie snap. But Instagrammers be warned – bleached shots rarely serve culinary justice!


October – Middle East and Turkey 

Buzzing bazaars, looming desert horizons, exquisite architecture and some of the most iconic landmarks on the planet… Asia, Africa and Europe’s fusion point serves up a celebration of colour, light and movement.


November – South East Asia

The nature is pristine, the cities are intoxicating and the locals smile with all their hearts. Show us the sights of Southeast Asia through your lens.


December – Transport (the crazy ways we can get from A to B) 

Planes, trains and automobiles? Try camels, cyclos, jeepneys, tuk-tuks, feluccas and hot-air balloons. If it’s weird, wonderful and made for movement, we’re all for it. Just no shots of travellers on top of elephants, thanks.


January – Wildlife

It could be cute, it could be scary, it could be toothed or it could be hairy. If you’ve shot one of Mother Nature’s creatures (with your camera, of course) we’d love to see it.


February – Asia 

Be it art or architecture, clothing or customs, food or festivals, Asian cultures have a way of imbuing an appreciation for the aesthetic into every element of the everyday. What was it that caught your eye?


March - Famous landmarks (can include people)

They may have been snapped a million times before, but that doesn’t make them any less impressive. The world’s most famous landmarks have been given that title for a reason – show us your pick.


April – National Parks, Jungles and Mountains

Some places are best just as they’ve always been. Raw and rugged, wild and weathered, preserved and protected – we like to see nature just how nature intended.


May – The Mediterranean 

Blue sea, bluer skies, heavenly cuisine and flawless beaches – the Greek Gods chose their stomping grounds well and countless others have followed their lead. What makes you mad for the Med?


June – North, Central and South America 

Few places know how to put on a spectacle quite like the Americas. Whether it’s mesmerizing Mayan ruins, the brashness of the Big Apple or revelry of Rio, this region knows how to play up in front of a camera.
