Travel Photographer of the Year is a competition “by photographers, for photographers”, which aims to showcase the work of amateur, semi-professional, and professional photographers from around the world. It aspires to “show that travel photography is much, much more than holiday snaps and pretty postcards”.
I don’t know how to put this without dissolving into squeals: a few weeks ago I found out I’m one of seven finalists in their Young TPOTY division.
Unfortunately, I can’t show you the images until final judging is over in mid-December, but I can show you this snazzy badge.
But honestly? I’m so, so honored to be counted amongst these amazingly talented photographers. Seriously. Check out their website. To say I did not expect any of this is a severe understatement.
Final results will be announced mid-December, so make sure to keep your eye out then!
