Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY)

Award-winning photography from the latest winners and the stories behind them

Over the last 20 years, the Travel Photographer of the Year awards have witnessed and showcased a remarkable selection of imagery, from the simply beautiful to the grittily haunting, from people and their cultures to landscapes and environment, from wildlife and conservation to architecture, history, and food. Different photographic styles, including reportage, editorial, advertising, documentary, and abstract make for a fascinating collection.

Behind each image is a story. It may be about the subject of the image; the place or the journey taken to get the photograph; or the photographer and their experiences or the creative processes used to make that image. Visual story-telling is such a powerful tool in photography, whether the message is obvious or suggestive in the response it provokes in the viewer.
